Rangachar Kasturi has been awarded the IAPR/ICDAR Outstanding Achievements Award. After having been nominated for this award, it was granted by a committee for "seminal research in document image analysis and graphics recognition, and for outstanding leadership to the international pattern recognition community." This award is very prestigious and is only given out every two years to an individual who has made outstanding contributions in the field of Document Analysis and Recognition.
Dr. Kasturi has said, "Much of the credit for this recognition goes to my students over the past 35 years and I share this honor with them. I am also grateful to the collegial atmosphere both here at USF and at Penn State where I worked until 2003."
The award will be presented to Dr. Kasturi during ICDAR 2017 in November, during which he has been requested give the opening keynote speech for the conference. The conference will take place in Kyoto, Japan.
