3DOR is the dedicated workshop series for methods, applications and
benchmark-based evaluation of 3D object retrieval, classification, and
similarity-based object processing. The workshop also includes the
2021 edition of the 3D Shape Retrieval Challenge (SHREC), keynotes,
project presentations, and a social and networking event. Accepted
full papers will be published in Computers & Graphics Journal
(Elsevier), and accepted short papers will appear in the Eurographics
Digital Library.

3D Object Retrieval Workshop Series

From the very beginning, the aim of the 3DOR Workshop series is to
stimulate researchers to present state-of-the-art work, learn about or
discuss topics in the field 3D object retrieval, search and
exploration in a multi-disciplinary context of expertise such as
Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning, Cognitive
Science and Human-Computer Interaction. 3DOR provides a
cross-fertilisation that will stimulate discussions on the next steps
in this important research area. 3DOR 2021 will be the 14th workshop
in this series.

The 3DOR Workshop series has been characterised since the beginning by
a specific attention to benchmarking with the organisation of the
session on the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest (SHREC). The general
objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest is to evaluate the
effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval methods and algorithms. SHREC 2021
is the 16th edition of the contest. As in previous years, it is
organised in conjunction with the Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object
Retrieval. Results papers from SHREC tracks will be reviewed in a two
stage-review process, like regular full papers (see below).

Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research and
application papers addressing all areas of 3D/4D Object
Retrieval. State of the art papers on specific topics of interest are
particularly welcome. Submissions are invited in the form of full
papers, which will be peer-reviewed by a two-stage review process, and
published as a special section of Computers and Graphics Journal
(Elsevier). Also, short papers are invited, which will follow a
one-stage review process and will appear in the Eurographics Digital
Library (pending).

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

*3D/4D shape analysis
*3D/4D shape similarity and matching
*3D/4D mesh sequence retrieval
*3D/4D mobile media retrieval
*3D/4D search in large scale data
*3D/4D object classification, indexing, and mining
*Similarity of non-rigid shapes
*Shape correspondence
*3D/4D shape decomposition, and segmentation
*Partial, part-in-whole, and many-to-many matching
*Matching under uncertainty and noise
*Semantics-driven 3D/4D object retrieval and classification
*Sketch-based retrieval
*Query interfaces and search modalities
*Benchmarking issues
*Deep learning for 3D/4D shape retrieval
*Generative/discriminative approaches in 3D object categorisation
*Visual Analytics for 3D similarity assessment
*Applications in all areas relevant to 3D/4D objects, including
multimedia and information systems, CAD, architecture, games,
biometrics, e-science, e-learning, medicine, biology, and cultural
heritage, among others.
