AbstractSince a few years, paleographers are experimenting with automatic writer identification. Test results clearly show that software can be used to analyze medieval handwritings. This session aims at showing researchers the promises and limitations of working with these digital tools. The papers are presented by paleographers and computer experts as the expertise of both sides is needed to make reliable writer identification software.
