This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Document Analysis Systems, DAS 2006, held in Nelson, New Zealand, in February 2006. The 33 revised full papers and 22 poster papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 78 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on digital libraries, image processing, handwriting, document structure and format, tables, language and script identification, systems and performance evaluation, and retrieval and segmentation.We propose an approach for efficient word retrieval from printed documents belonging to Digital Libraries. The approach combines word image clustering ( based on Self Organizing Maps, SOM) with Principal Component Analysis.
