The Eighth International Workshop on Camera-Based Document Analysis and Recognition (CBDAR 2019) will be the the successor of the previous seven workshops held in Seoul/Korea (2005), Curitiba/Brazil (2007), Barcelona/Spain (2009), Beijing/China (2011), Washington DC/USA (2013), Nancy/France (2015) and Kyoto/Japan (2017), as satellite workshops of the respective ICDAR conferences.

The CBDAR series has a special focus on the analysis of camera captured documents and text. CBDAR is a forum for presenting up-to-date research, sharing experiences and fomenting discussions on future directions. The goal of CBDAR is to explore new research directions through the presentation of up-to-date research as well as discussions on future directions.

The workshop explores the links between Document Image Analysis and Recognition (DIAR) and the wider Computer Vision (CV) community, and has the great potential to attract new audience to ICDAR.
