Welcome to the second ICDAR workshop, ACM ICMR 2021 12-15 July November 16-19, Taipei, Taiwan


Workshop Program

The Workshop starts on November 16, 2021 from 9am (Taiwan time). Regular and Short papers have 20 minutes and 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for Q&A, respectively. The workshop calendar is planned as follows:


Title: Discovering Knowledge Hidden in Raster Images using RasterMiner

Speaker: Professor Rage Uday Kiran, Aizu University, Japan


In this talk, we present rasterMiner an integrated open-source software to discover knowledge from raster imagery datasets. It currently provides unsupervised learning techniques, such as pattern mining and clustering, to discover knowledge hidden in raster data. The key features of our software are as follows: (i) provides four pattern mining algorithms and four clustering algorithms to discover knowledge from raster data, (ii) Our software also provides "elbow method" to choose an appropriate ?? value for k-mean and kmeans++ algorithms, (iii) Our software presents an integrated GUI that can facilitate the domain experts to choose algorithm(s) of their choice, (iv) Our software can also be accessed as a python-library, (v) The knowledge discovered by our software can be stored in standard formats so that the generated knowledge can be visualized using any GIS software

Invited Talk

Title: Multimodal Virtual Avatars for Investigative Interviews with Children

Speaker: Michael Alexander Riegler, Simula Metropolitan Center for Digital Engineering, Norway


In this article, we present our ongoing work in the field of training police officers who conduct interviews with abused children. The objectives in this context are to protect vulnerable children from abuse, facilitate prosecution of offenders, and ensure that innocent adults are not accused of criminal acts. There is therefore a need for more data that can be used for improved interviewer training to equip police with the skills to conduct high quality interviews. To support this important task, we propose to research a training program that utilizes different system components and multimodal data from the field of artificial intelligence such as chatbots, generation of visual content, text-to-speech, and speech-to-text. This program will be able to generate an almost unlimited number of interviews and training data. The goal of combining all these different technologies and datatypes is to create an immersive and interactive child avatar that responds in a realistic way, to help to support training of police interviewers, but can also produce synthetic data of interview situations that can be used to solve different problems in the same domain.
