In the last two decades, the progress in handwritten text processing has allowed us to increment the performance of the systems devoted to the transcription, indexing, and semantic interpretation of handwritten text documents. The progress has covered all the steps in this field, from image capture and enhancement to information extraction based on the contents of the documents. As a result, lots of data that were difficult to process from the natural language perspective have became available for specialized researchers and the general public, especially when dealing with the contents of historical archives.
The aim of this Special Issue is to attract world-leading researchers in the handwritten text processing field in an effort to show recent progress in the area, including the development of new paradigms and models and new applications of the state-of-the-art technology.Dr. Carlos-D.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
