CFP: Eurographics 2008 Workshop on 3D object retrieval

First Call for Papers
Eurographics 2008 Workshop on 3D object retrieval


April 15, 2008

3D object representations have become an integral part of modern computer
graphics applications, such as computer-aided design, game development and
film production. At the same time, 3D data have become very common in
domains such as computer vision, computational geometry, molecular biology
and medicine. The rapid evolution in graphics hardware and software
development, in particular the availability of low cost 3D scanners, has
greatly facilitated 3D model acquisition, creation and manipulation, giving
the opportunity to experience applications using 3D models to a large user
community. As the number of 3D models is continuously growing fast the
problem of creating new 3D models has shifted to the problem of searching
for existing 3D models. Thereupon, the development of efficient search
mechanisms is required for the effective retrieval of 3D objects from large
repositories, both of a single class (such as human faces) and across

The aim of this workshop is to stimulate researchers from different fields
(computer vision, computer graphics, machine learning and human-computer
interaction) who work on the common goal of 3D object retrieval, to present
state-of-the-art work in the field and thus provide a cross-fertilization
ground that will stimulate discussions on the next steps in this important
research area.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to :

- Invariant 2D / 3D feature extraction
- Biologically inspired 3D representations
- Mesh segmentation
- Relevance feedback
- Active learning
- Ontology-driven search
- Generative / Discriminative approaches in 3D object categorization
- Indexing methodologies
- Benchmarking issues
- Applications in Multimedia industry, CAD industry, Games industry,
  Biometrics, e-Science, e-Learning, Medicine, Culture.
