Following the success of the 1st Workshop on Computer VISion for ART Analysis held in 2012 (in conjunction with ECCV 2012), we present the call for papers for the VISART II workshop.  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This one-day workshop in conjunction with ECCV 2014, calls for high-quality, previously unpublished, works related to Computer Vision and related areas that focus on art objects and art analysis. Submissions should conform to the ECCV 2014 proceedings style. Papers must be submitted online through the ECCV 2014 CMT submission system and double-blind peer reviewed by at least three reviewers.
