The Center of Excellence for Document Analysis and Recognition (CEDAR) is a research center at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. Growing out of research on pattern recognition, conducted since 1978 in the Department of Computer Science, CEDAR was made possible with funding from several federal agencies, principally the United States Postal Service. While analysis of paper documents and handwriting recognition continues to be our strength, we have research and software development projects involving diverse digital document types.
