>VISART - Where Computer Vision Meets Art

Art analysis is a fertile field of application for Computer Vision techniques. It is an interdisciplinary research in nature, which benefits the computer vision community with new tools and new problems, and the art history community with automatic tools for assisting in the art analysis.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together leading researches in the fields of computer vision, machine learning, and multimedia information retrieval, with a special emphasis on art and cultural heritage applications. The ultimate goal of this workshop is to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and expose the audience to the problems and results in art analysis using the state-of-the-art techniques developed in the aforementioned fields.

This one day workshop, held in conjunction with ECCV 2012, calls for high-quality, previously unpublished, works related to Computer Vision and related areas, which focus on art objects and art analysis. A list of topics include, but is not limited to, the following:

- Content-based Image Retrieval
- 3D reconstruction
- Image metrology from paintings
- Large scale 3D reconstruction of Historical sites
- Human pose estimation in art
- Object detection and localization
- Authentication and Forensics
- Image representation in art
- Multimedia applications to artistic images
- Visualisation and Interaction
- Computer Vision and Cultural Heritage
- Application of learning methods to art analysis

Submissions should conform to the ECCV 2012 wokshop proceedings, and have a maximum of 10 pages. Papers must be submitted online through the ECCV 2012 workshop CMT system and double-blind peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers.
