*_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 mining…).


*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.

*Important dates*

Registration deadline: *March 30, 2018* Training dataset is available: *early February, 2018* Evaluation dataset is available:* April 5, 2018* Result submission: * April 10, 2018* Submission of the description of methods: *April 15, 2018* Conference: *August 20-24, 2018*
