Aim & Scope

Cultural heritage, especially fine arts, plays an invaluable role in
the cultural, historical and economic growth of our societies. Fine
arts are primarily developed for aesthetic purposes and are mainly
expressed through painting, sculpture and architecture. In recent
years, thanks to technological improvements and drastic cost
reductions, a large-scale digitization effort has been made, which has
led to an increasing availability of large digitized fine art
collections. This availability, coupled with recent advances in
pattern recognition and computer vision, has disclosed new
opportunities, especially for researchers in these fields, to assist
the art community with automatic tools to further analyze and
understand fine arts. Among other benefits, a deeper understanding of
fine arts has the potential to make them more accessible to a wider
population, both in terms of fruition and creation, thus supporting
the spread of culture.

This special issue aims to offer the opportunity to present
advancements in the state-of-the-art, innovative research, ongoing
projects, and academic and industrial reports on the application of
visual pattern extraction and recognition for a better understanding
and fruition of fine arts, soliciting contributions from pattern
recognition, computer vision, artificial intelligence and image
processing research areas. The special issue will be linked to the 2nd
International Workshop on Fine Art Pattern Extraction and Recognition
(FAPER2022). Authors of selected conference papers will be invited to
extend and improve their contributions for this special issue, and
authors are also invited to submit new contributions (non-conference
