Eurographics 2008 Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval

3DOR 09
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 classes.

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.
