Call for Participation SHREC2017 - 3D Shape Retrieval Contest 2017


SHREC2017 - 3D Shape Retrieval Contest 2017

At Eurographics 2017 Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval, 

The general objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest is to evaluate
the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. SHREC'17 is the 
12th edition of the contest. Like previous years, it is organized in
conjunction with the Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval, 
where the results will be reviewed by the chairs of the workshop and
included in the workshop proceedings.

Thanks to the efforts of previous track organizers, SHREC already 
provides many resources to compare and evaluate 3D retrieval methods.
For this year's contest, we aim to explore new and updated tracks.
Therefore, the participants are invited 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. At least one author per track must
register for the workshop, and present the results. We also cordially
invite all participants of a track to register and attend the workshop.

The following tracks are organized. For description of tasks, the
collections, queries, the evaluation procedure, and time schedule,
follow the links or contact the track organizer.

The following list is a step-by-step description of the activities:

-   Potential track organizers send their proposal to
    , describing the envisioned task, collection,
    queries, ground truth, evaluation method, and expected number of 
-   Promising tracks and their organizers will be listed at the SHREC
    web page, the track organizers start working out the details.
-   Participants register for the tracks they want to participate in.
-   Each track is performed according to its own schedule.
-   The track organizers collect the results.
-   The track results are combined into a joint paper, to be included
    in the proceedings of the Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval.
-   The description of the tracks and their results are presented at the 
    Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval (April 23-24, 2017).
