Biography: 

David Doermann is a senior research scientist in UMIACS.

Since 1993, he has served as co-director of the Laboratory for Language and Media Processing in UMIACS and as an adjunct member of the graduate faculty.

Doermann's team of researchers focus on topics related to document image analysis and multimedia information processing. Recent intelligent document image analysis projects include page decomposition, structural analysis and classification, page segmentation, logo recognition, document image compression, duplicate document image detection, image based retrieval, character recognition, generation of synthetic OCR data, and signature verification. In video processing, projects have centered on the segmentation of compressed domain video sequences, structural representation and classification of video, detection of reformatted video sequences, and the performance evaluation of automated video analysis algorithms.

In 2002 he received an Honorary Doctorate of Technology Sciences from the University of Oulu for his contributions to digital media processing and document analysis research. Doermann is a founding co-editor of the International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition, has served as the general chair or co-chair of more than a half dozen international conferences and workshops, including the International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR), which was held in Washington, D.C., in 2013. He has authored more than 30 journal publications and more than 125 refereed conference papers.

He received a B.Sc. degree in computer science and mathematics from Bloomsburg University in 1987, a M.Sc. degree in 1989 in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. He continued his studies in the Computer Vision Laboratory, where he earned a doctorate in 1993.
