15th Symposium on 3D Object Retrieval 2022 (3DOR'22) Call for Short Papers

15th Symposium on 3D Object Retrieval 2022 (3DOR'22)
In Cooperation with Eurographics and Elsevier
September 1st-2nd, 2022, Florence, Italy

The Symposium short paper submission deadline is July 10th, 2022

3DOR is the dedicated workshop series for methods, applications and
benchmark-based evaluation of 3D object retrieval, classification, and
similarity-based object processing. In 2022, the 3DOR will be
organized as a Symposium with the ambition to target a larger auditory
attracting more submissions and participants. The symposium also
includes the 2022 edition of the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest, keynotes,
project presentations, and a social and networking event. Short papers
will follow a one-stage review process and will appear in the
Eurographics Digital Library.

Important Dates: Short Paper Submission for EG Digital Library
10 July 2022: Short paper submission
25 July 2022: Short paper notification
25 August 2022: Short paper final version submission
31 August 2022: Online publication

3D Object Retrieval Workshop Series

Since its inception, 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 multidisciplinary context of expertise such as
Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning, Cognitive
Science and Human-Computer Interaction. 3DOR provides a
cross-fertilization that will stimulate discussions on the next steps
in this important research area. 3DOR 2022 will be the 15th event in
this series and will be organized as a Symposium with the aim to
attract a larger audience. Search engines are now the default way in
which most people engage with information, as the vast majority of
information is born digital. 3D digital content is today pervasive: 3D
scanning capabilities in mobile telephones, low-cost 3D scanners, 3D
printers, and powerful modelling software have made 3D models appeal
to an increasing audience. Repositories of 3D objects are rapidly
growing in both number and size. Time-dependent acquisition, animation
and simulation give rise to 3D objects as a function of time, yielding
4D objects. Yet, the task of exploring such large 3D/4D object
repositories and retrieving the models of interest remains a
challenging problem. It is crucial to develop algorithms for
content-based searching of 3D object collections; creating compact and
accurate descriptors for 3D objects; creating efficient storage
structures for databases of 3D objects; investigating theoretical
aspects of practical importance, such as the definition of the
similarity concept; interfaces for content-based 3D object search;
visualization techniques for 3D search results; real time aspects of
techniques and algorithms; new challenges such as faceted 3D browsing,
social search and navigation of hybrid datasets. The complex yet
concrete problems above are drawing increasing attention from the
research community, which is becoming more and more varied in terms of
disciplines needed to solve various facets of the challenges. The 3DOR
Workshop series has been characterized since the beginning by a
specific attention to benchmarking with the organization 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 2022
is the 17th edition of the contest. As in previous years, it is
organized in conjunction with the Eurographics Symposium on 3D Object
Retrieval. Results papers from SHREC tracks will be reviewed in a two
stage-review process, like regular full papers (see below). A separate
call for participation in SHREC will be issued shortly.

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 the Computers and Graphics Journal
(Elsevier). Short papers are also 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 categorization
 * 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.
