                         The 4th International Workshop on
                    coMics ANalysis, Processing and Understanding
                           (in conjunction with ICPR 2020)

Comics is a medium constituted of images combined with text and other visual information in order
to narrate a story. Nowadays, comic books are a widespread cultural expression all over the world.
The market of comics continues to grow, for example, the market in Japan is about 4.25 billion USD
in 2015. Moreover, from the research point of view, comics images are attractive targets because
the structure of a comics page includes various elements (such as panels, speech balloons, captions,
leading characters, and so on), the drawing of which depends on the style of the author and presents
a large variability. Therefore comics image analysis is not a trivial problem and is still immature
compared with other kinds of image analysis.
