Call For Participation: SHREC - 3D Shape Retrieval Contest



                    SHREC'07 - 3D Shape Retrieval Contest 2007


After the success of SHREC - 3D Shape Retrieval Contest 2006, the Network of 
Excellence AIM@SHAPE is taking the initiative to organize a sequel. The general 
objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. The 
contest is organized in conjunction with the SMI'07 conference (Shape Modeling 
International), where the evaluation results will be presented. In contrast with 
the previous contest, this time the contest will involve multiple tracks. 

The following tracks are being organized:
    * Watertight models
