International Workshop on Pattern Recognition for Cultural Heritage Call for Papers

International Workshop on Pattern Recognition for Cultural Heritage
(PatReCH 2020)

The enormous amount of artefacts and information that come from the
past is increasingly and rapidly being digitized. However, the useful
information contained in these data is not easy to exploit and some
kind of analysis is needed. On the other hand, the digital
representations of real objects require for some kind of manipulation.
Recent machine learning and pattern recognition algorithms give the
opportunity to analyze and manipulate the acquired data in order to
better exploit the contained information and generate the best digital
representation.  The aim of this workshop is to present recent
advances in Pattern Recognition (PR) techniques for data analysis and
representation in the cultural heritage field. Bringing together the
work of many experts in this multidisciplinary subject to highlight
these advances from a wide-angle perspective, as well as to stimulate
new theoretical and applied research for better characterizing the
state of the art in this subject.  

The workshop will be held on 11 January 2021, in conjunction with the
25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR2020), that
will be held from 10 to 15 January 2021 in Milan, Italy.

Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

**   Ancient document analysis

**   Digital artifact capture, representation and manipulation

**   Automatic annotation of tangible and intangible heritage

**   Interactive software tools for cultural heritage applications

**   Multimedia music classification and reconstruction

**   Augmented and Virtual Reality applications

**   Image processing, classification and retrieval

**   Semantic segmentation

**   Serious Game for Cultural Heritage

**   Robotic applications

**   Ontology Learning for cultural heritage domain
