After the success of the two first editions of the “Arabic Text in Videos Competition—AcTiVComp”, we are proposing to organize a new edition in conjunction with the 25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR’20). The main objective is to contribute in the research field of text detection and recognition in multimedia documents, with a focus on Arabic text in video frames. The former editions were held in the framework of ICPR’16 and ICDAR’17 conferences. The obtained results on the AcTiV dataset have shown that there is still room for improvement in both text detection and recognition tasks. Four groups with five systems are participating to this edition of AcTiVComp (three for the detection task and two for the recognition task). All the submitted systems have followed a CRNN-based architecture, which is now the de facto choice for text detection and OCR problems. The achieved results are very interesting, showing a significant improvement from the state-of-the-art performances on this field of research.
