*_Call for Participation_*
*_ICPR 2018 Contest on Fraud Detection_*
We are pleased to announce the Fraud Detection Contest in conjunction
with ICPR 2018.
This contest sits at the crossroad between text and image analysis,
allowing both text- and image-based approaches to discover fraud from
digitally-born and digitised documents.
Since last decades, the explosion of the volume of digital documents
images and development of easy-to-use consumer tools to edit these
images has led to a huge increase in the number of corrupted documents.
The development of many tools and methods to detect modifications has
also increased but their evaluation remains a challenge.
Forensics research is a sensitive topic. Datasets are often private or
unlabeled and most related works are evaluated based on undisclosed
datasets. This restriction has two major consequences: results cannot be
reproduced and no benchmarking can be done between approaches.
This contest was conceived in order to address these drawbacks:
●First, a public images and texts dataset of french shopping receipts
containing no private information was designed so that it can be
disclosed and used with no constraints.
●Second, the contest should finally presents a benchmark on major works
developed since many years, both for images and texts processing methods.
The contest is open to all researchers and engineers working on
detection of forgerywithin documents, images or texts, coming from
different domains of activities (forensics, document analysis, data
*Task 1*: The detection of modified documents. The provided dataset will
contain both genuine and modified documents. The first task aims at
discovering which ones are forged.
*Task 2*: The spotting of this or these falsification(s) in the document
(many falsifications can occur in one document), with methods applied to
the image or text, or both.
