3D Shape Retrieval Challenge

3D Shape Retrieval Challenge, SHREC2022, http://www.shrec.net/

Call for Track Proposals


At Eurographics 2022 Symposium on 3D Object Retrieval, 1-2 September 2022

New since 2020: Full paper submissions will follow a two-stage review
process and will be published in the international journal Computes &
Graphics upon acceptance.

We strongly encourage to consider the graphics replicability stamp
initiative, http://www.replicabilitystamp.org/, and to apply for this
additional sign of recognition.


The general objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Challenge is to
evaluate the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. SHREC2022
is the sixteenth edition of the challenge. Like previous years, it is
organized in conjunction with the Eurographics Symposium on 3D Object
Retrieval, where the results will be reviewed and presented at the

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 peer reviewed, and published in Computers & Graphics upon
acceptance. At least one author per track must register for the
symposium, and present the results. We also cordially invite all
participants of a track to register and attend the workshop.


The tracks organized in the past years have covered different aspects
and tasks of 3D shape retrieval, for example: rigid or non-rigid
models; partial (e.g. range scan) or complete models; sketch-based 3D
retrieval; generic or domain specific models (e.g. CAD, biometrics,
architectural and molecular), and various aspects such as metric
learning, outlier detection, correspondence, robustness, stability,
registration, classification, recognition, pose estimation, and
machine learning.

Now we solicit again proposals for tracks. You may opt for one of the
above themes, or propose new ones. Track organizers are responsible
for all aspects of organizing the track, such as: the task, the data
collection (copyright issues, etc.), the queries, the ground truth,
the experimental design, the evaluation method, and the procedural
aspects, writing the final paper in collaboration with the
contestants, and submitting it. See below for examples of previous
SHREC editions. We strongly encourage to consider the graphics
replicability stamp initiative, http://www.replicabilitystamp.org/, to
apply for this additional sign of recognition, and to include this in
your track proposal.



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

    Potential track organizers send their proposal to shrec@cs.uu.nl,
    describing the envisioned task, collection, queries, ground truth,
    evaluation method, expected number of participants, and plans to
    apply for the graphics replicability stamp.

    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. Papers are
    subject to peer review, accepted journal papers are published in
    Computers & Graphics.

    The description of the tracks and their results are presented at
    the Eurographics Symposium on 3D Object Retrieval, 1-2 September
