The main motivation of this book is smart meeting rooms, aim to automate standard tasks usually performed by humans in a meeting.The book can be summarized as follows. A new online handwritten database is compiled, and four handwriting recognition systems are developed. Moreover, novel preprocessing and normalization strategies are designed especially for whiteboard notes and a new neural network based recognizer is applied. Commercial recognition systems are included in a multiple classifier system. The experimental results on the test set show a highly significant improvement of the recognition performance to more than 86%.Contents: Classification MethodsLinguistic Resources and Handwriting DatabasesOff-Line ApproachOn-Line ApproachMultiple Classifier CombinationWriter-Dependent Recognition
