***************************************** VISART \"Where Computer Vision Meets Art\" ***************************************** 1st Workshop on Computer VISion for ART Analysis (http://printart.isr.ist.utl.pt/visart/) In conjunction with ECCV 2012 ***************************************** IMPORTANT DATES Submission: July 1, 2012 Notification of acceptance: July 25, 2012 Workshop: 12th October 2012 (one-day) ***************************************** SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS Art analysis is a fertile field of application for Computer Vision techniques. It is an interdisciplinary research in nature, which benefits the computer vision community with new tools and new problems, and the art history community with automatic tools for assisting in the art analysis. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together leading researches in the fields of computer vision, machine learning, and multimedia information retrieval, with a special emphasis on art and cultural heritage applications. The ultimate goal of this workshop is to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and expose the audience to the problems and results in art analysis using the state-of-the-art techniques developed in the aforementioned fields. This one day workshop, held in conjunction with ECCV 2012, calls for high-quality, previously unpublished, works related to Computer Vision and related areas, which focus on art objects and art analysis. Submissions should conform to the ECCV 2012 proceedings style, and have a maximum of 10 pages. Papers must be submitted online through the ECCV 2012 CMT submission system and double-blind peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. TOPICS A preliminary list of topics includes, but is not limited to: Content-based Image Retrieval 3D reconstruction and image metrology from paintings Large scale 3D reconstruction of Historical sites Human pose estimation in art Object detection and localization Authentication and Forensics Image representation in art Multimedia applications to artistic images Visualisation and Interaction Computer Vision and Cultural Heritage Application of learning methods to art analysis INVITED SPEAKERS Computer Vision and Art Analysis David Stork, Rambus Lab Art History and Iconography Hans Brandhorst, Iconclass/Arkyves PROGRAM COMMITTEE Prof. David Suter, Adelaide University Prof. Mario Figueiredo, Instituto de Telecomunicaš§es (IST) Prof. Rita Cucchiara, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia Prof. Nuno Vasconcelos, UC San Diego Dr. Chunhua Shen, Adelaide University Dr. Matteo Dellepiane, ISTI-CNR Pisa Prof. Lior Wolf, Tel Aviv University Dr. David Stork, Rambus Lab Prof. JosÚ Bioucas, Instituto de Telecomunicaš§es (IST) Prof. Silvio Savarese, University of Michigan Prof. David Lowe, University of British Columbia Prof. Anton van den Hengel, Australian Centre for Visual Technologies Dr. Tat-Jun Chin, Adelaide University Dr. Qifeng (Javen) Shi, Australian Centre for Visual Technologies, Prof. Jiri Matas, Czech Technical University Prof. Bj÷rn Ommer, University of Heidelberg Prof. Alexandre Bernardino, Instituto Superior Tecnico Dr. Fernando De la Torre, CMU ORGANIZERS: Nuno Pinho da Silva, ISR, Instituto Superior TÚcnico, Portugal Joao Paulo Costeira, ISR, Instituto Superior TÚcnico, Portugal Gustavo Carneiro, University of Adelaide, Australia Alessio Del Bue, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Italy Please check VISART website for additional information about the workshop at:http://printart.isr.ist.utl.pt/visart/
