Important Dates and Timeline

The GREC organizing committee has decided to significantly change their submission and review process, in order to provide a more coherent and integrated timeline with respect to ICDAR and its related events.


Please note that the final submission deadline is now set to May 15th. This is a hard deadline and no extension is to be expected.


Furthermore, note that GREC 2013 will be introducing an innovating on-the-fly review process, starting reviewing papers as they arrive, and providing feedback to their authors immediately after the review is completed. We therefore invite authors to submit as early as possible as to spread the reviewing effort by the program committee. We expect that using this approach, and provided submissions will not peak unreasonably at some point in the process, the following timing will be kept.

Submission Process

  • Paper submission process open until: May 15 2013
  • Review and acceptance notification (on individual basis) : two weeks after paper deposit (at latest June 1 2013)
  • Camera ready deadline: June 16 2013

Post-conference LNCS proceedings, extended version submission deadline: November 2013

Expected acceptance notification for LNCS: January 2014 


  • Early registration opens June 1st 2013


  • August 20-21 2013
  • Transfer to ICDAR: August 22nd 2013 (Organized by the GREC Local Arrangements Committee)



The following contests are held in conjunction with GREC 2013:
