16th Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval Call for Papers

16th Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval 2023 (3DOR'23)

In Cooperation with Eurographics and Elsevier

31th August, 1st September 2023

Lille, France


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
2023 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.

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-fertilization that will stimulate discussions on the next steps
in this important research area. 3DOR 2023 will be the 16th workshop
in this series.

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: 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-dependant 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 2023
is the 18th edition of the contest. As in previous years, it is
organized 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 shape analysis

      3D shape similarity and matching

      3D mesh sequence retrieval

      3D mobile media retrieval

      3D search in large scale data

      3D object classification, indexing, and mining

      Similarity of non-rigid shapes

      Shape correspondence

      3D shape decomposition, and segmentation

      Partial, part-in-whole, and many-to-many matching

      Matching under uncertainty and noise

      Semantics-driven 3D object retrieval and classification

      Sketch-based retrieval

      Query interfaces and search modalities

      Benchmarking issues

      Deep learning for 3D 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.
