For this year’s ICFHR’20, we organize a large-scale image retrieval competition. The task is to find fragments of the same image/from the same writer given a query fragment. To train your system, we created a 100k large training set of fragments. This competition is co-organized by the IRHT/CNRS. For more information, please visit
