Summary The book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Summit on Arabic and Chinese Handwriting Recognition, SACH 2006, held in College Park, USA, September 27-28, 2006. The 16 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from a total of over 60 submissions. The first six papers deal directly with Arabic handwriting together with a short historic survey of the language and techniques used in recognition. Five papers present the current research in Chinese handwriting and three more papers deal with cross cutting methods applied to other languages. The book closes with two articles on recognition of English and south Indian handwriting
