================================================================ CFP: 3DOR'10: - First call ================================================================ 3rd Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval 2nd May 2010, Norrköping, Sweden http://www-rech.telecom-lille1.eu/3dor 3D object representations have become an integral part of modern computer graphics applications, such as computer-aided design, game development and film production. At the same time, 3D data have become very common in domains such as computer vision, computational geometry, molecular biology and medicine. The rapid evolution in graphics hardware and software development, in particular the availability of low cost 3D scanners, has greatly facilitated 3D model acquisition, creation and manipulation, giving the opportunity to experience applications using 3D models to a large user community. As the number of 3D models is continuously growing fast the problem of creating new 3D models has shifted to the problem of searching for existing 3D models. Thereupon, the development of efficient search mechanisms is required for the effective retrieval of 3D objects from large repositories, both of a single class (such as human faces) and across classes . The aim of this workshop is to stimulate researchers from different fields (computer vision, computer graphics, machine learning and human-computer interaction) who work on the common goal of 3D object retrieval, to present state-of-the-art work in the field and thus provide a cross-fertilization ground that will stimulate discussions on the next steps in this important research area.

The contest is now organized in conjunction with 3DOR'10, where the evaluation results will be presented and printed in the corresponding workhop proceedings published by the Eurographics Book Series. Thanks to the effort of previous track organizers, SHREC already provides many resources to compare and evaluate 3D retrieval methods. For this year's contest, we aim at new and updated tracks. Therefore, the participants are requested to have an active role in the organization of the event. This includes proposing track themes, building or acquiring a test collection, and deciding upon the queries, relevance assessment, and performance measures. The participants of each track will collectively write a paper, which will be published in the proceedings of the Eurographics Workshop 3D Object Retrieval. --
