IHS Institute for Handwriting Sciences

About
The Institute was founded in 2016 with the major aim to promote and conduct research into different aspects and application fields of handwriting (both off-line and on-line writing modalities) and to establish profound connection to academic bodies <…..>

Research
Handwriting is a product of brain activity and its control over fine motorics. It is individual and relatively stable. It differs from other fine motoric skills in that it is always related to a cognitive load. The research of handwriting covers all its aspects: neurological, motoric (dynamic), written text analysis (static), social, culturological <…..>

Education
The aim of our educational activity with regard to academic bodies is to bring handwriting analysis to a higher scientific level. We hold lectures for academic and non-academic organisations; we give presentations in university seminars and support students with their bachelor and master theses <…..>

Competence Center for Computer Methods in Handwriting
The intention of the competence center is to establish a knowledge base for computer-aided systems supporting handwriting research. This knowledge center pursues the objectives of analysis of current development trends, evaluation and choice of proper software for specific research purposes, establishing a discussion to enable exchange and to provide a reference point, and coordination the development effort by specialists and students <…..>
