2. Recognizing Handwritten Arabic Script through Efficient Skeleton-Based Grapheme Segmentation Algorithm (pdf)

Venue: The 10th International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA’10)
Cairo, Egypt
29/11/2010 – 1/12/2010

Talk Abstract:
To recognize unlimited set of handwritten Arabic words, an efficient segmentation algorithm is needed to segment these cursive words into a limited set of primal graphemes. We propose a rule-based segmentation algorithm that segments cursive words into graphemes through collecting special feature points from the word skeleton. The development of this algorithm is motivated by the need to solve problems and limitations available in the state-of-the-art algorithms in this area. The preliminary evaluation of the proposed algorithm is promising with over 96% accuracy on a sample subset of the IFN/ENIT database.

1. Electronic Voting: For Secure and Efficient Elections in Jordan

Venue: Friendship Auditorium
Princess Sumaya University for Technology
Tuesday, 2/11/2010, 1:00-2:00 pm

Talk Abstract:
This talk reviews the Jordanian electoral experience and aspirations. It reviews modern examples of international e-voting solutions. It also describes the important requirement that an e-voting system must satisfy. Then it describes our e-voting system. This system satisfies the e-voting system requirements through state-of-the-art technologies and secure processes. The system relies on public key cryptography, biometrics, smartcards, open source software, and secure computers in securely and efficiently implementing the electoral processes. Furthermore, we describe the pilot implementation of this system that tests the main technologies and processes used. This talk is in Arabic and English.
