Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval

April 6, 2014 in Strasbourg, France

3D Object Retrieval Workshop Series

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 various domains such as computer vision, computational geometry, molecular biology and medicine.

Indeed, the rapid evolution in graphics hardware and software, in particular the availability of low cost 3D scanners and modeling tools, has greatly facilitated 3D model acquisition, creation, and manipulation, giving the opportunity to a large user community to experience applications using 3D models. As the number of 3D models is growing rapidly, 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.

The aim of the 3DOR Workshop series is to stimulate researchers from different fields such as Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning, Cognitive Science and Human-Computer Interaction who work on the common goal of 3D object retrieval, to present state-of-the-art work in the field. This will provide a cross-fertilization ground that will stimulate discussions on the next steps in this important research area.

3DOR 2014 will be the seventh workshop in this series and will take place on April 6, 2014 in Strasbourg (France), one day before Eurographics 2014.

Important dates

  • December 22, 2013: Paper submissions due
  • February 14, 2014: Notification of acceptance
  • February 21, 2014: Camera-ready papers
  • April 6, 2014: Workshop takes place

Call for Papers, Posters and System Demonstrations

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research and practical applications in all areas of 3D Object Retrieval. Submissions are invited in the form of full and short papers, as well as poster and system presentations. Further information about paper format and submission will be available on the workshop website soon.

This year's workshop will also feature the 7th Shape Retrieval Evaluation Contest (SHREC'2014). A separate call for participation will be issued.

It is planned to have extended versions of selected papers from the Workshop appearing, after a further review, in a special issue of an international journal. Selected papers from previous workshops appeared in special issues of The Visual Computer (TVC) journal.
