CROwdsourced and COmputational rephotoGRAPHY Call for Papers

Crocography 2018 - Call for Papers
27 - 29 January, 2018
Funchal, Madeira, Portugal
 
Ghent University  imec, IDLab and the Estonian Photographic
Heritage Society are organizing a workshop on CROwdsourced and
COmputational rephotoGRAPHY (CROCOGRAPHY -
http://www.visigrapp.org/CroCoGraphy.aspx),in conjunction with the
13th International Joint Conference on Computer Vision, Imaging and
Computer Graphics Theory and Applications (VISIGRAPP) to be held
during 27 - 29 January, 2018 at Funchal, Madeira, Portugal.  We'd like
to invite you to submit your papers by November 7th. The main focus of
this workshop is on accurately mapping images of the past on the
buildings and landscapes of today.


Scope: Crowdsourced and computational rephotography is a
multidisciplinary subject, dealing with a broad range of computer
vision, metadata, semantics and VGI techniques to estimate the
viewpoint of old photographs in today's images of the
world. Aligning a historical photograph in a modern rephotograph (or
vice versa) can serve as a remarkable visualization of the passage of
time and can be used across a plethora of application domains (e.g.,
tourism, media and GLAM sector). The workshop welcomes contributions
to theories, design and evaluation of volunteered and automatic
rephotography (or a combination of both) and will provide an
interactive platform with presentation and discussion opportunities
for novel research, work in progress, and more general 'open problems'
in rephotography and related research domains.


Topics: Volunteered geographic information (VGI) and crowdsourcing
rephotography; Computer vision techniques for computational
rephotography; Semantic scene understanding; Clustering of visually
similar landscapes/scenes; Architectural style/building type
recognition; Image geolocalization; Geographic metadata enrichment and
metadata-driven image analysis; Computational efficient rephotography
visualization techniques; Visual Place Recognition in Changing
Environments; Change invariant scene matching; (Mobile) Imaging for
Cultural Heritage; Learning invariant places / image features.
