Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval 2009

First Call for Papers Eurographics 2009 Workshop on 3D object retrieval March 29, 2009, Munich, Germany


3D content is now widely recognized as the upcoming wave of digital media. Inexperience and professional users are becoming more and more actively involved in the content creation pipeline and ask for intuitive and effective tools for creating, sharing, retrieving and re-using 3D content. Search and retrieval of 3D objects is therefore rapidly become a key issue in the upcoming panorama of multimedia content, both in general usage scenarios, such as online gaming or 3D social networks, and in scientific domains, such as molecular biology and medicine. 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 classes.
The aim of this workshop is to stimulate researchers from different fields (computer vision, computer graphics, machine learning, human-computer interaction, semantic web) 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.

The workshop is run in-cooperation with AC SIGGRAPH and the proceedings will be published by the Eurographics Book Series and will be available on-line via the Eurographics Digital Library as well as the ACM Digital Library.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to :
- 3D object similarity and matching
- 3D Object classification, indexing, and mining
- Feature extraction, model decomposition and segmentation
- Partial and many-to-many matching
- Matching under uncertainty and noise
- Query interfaces and search modalities
- Multi-level representations for matching and retrieval
- Semantics-driven 3D object retrieval and classification
- Sketch-based retrieval
- Benchmarking issues
- Relevance feedback methods
- Active learning
- Generative / Discriminative approaches in 3D object categorisation
- Applications in Multimedia industry
- Applications in CAD industry
- Applications in Games industry
- Applications in Biometrics
- Applications in e-Science
- Applications in e-Learning
- Applications in Medicine and Biology
- Applications in Cultural Heritage
