Abstract--This paper presents an objective comparative evalu-
ation of layout analysis methods for scanned historical docu-
ments. It describes the competition (modus operandi, dataset
and evaluation methodology) held in the context of
ICDAR2011 and the International Workshop on Historical
Document Imaging and Processing (HIP2011), presenting the
results of the evaluation of four submitted methods. A com-
mercial state-of-the-art system is also evaluated for compari-
son. Two scenarios are reported in this paper, one evaluating
the ability of methods to accurately segment regions and the
other evaluating the whole pipeline of segmentation and region
classification (with a text extraction goal). The results indicate
that there is a convergence to a certain methodology with some
variations in the approach. However, there is still a considera-
