International Workshop on Pattern Recognition for Cultural Heritage Call for Papers


II 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 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

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 21 August 2022 (to be confirmed), in
conjunction with the 26th International Conference on Pattern
Recognition (ICPR2022), that will be held from 21 to 25 August 2022 in
Montréal, Québec.


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
