FAPER 2023 : 3rd International Workshop on Fine Art Pattern Extraction and Recognition
Call For Papers
___ Aim & Scope ___
Cultural heritage, especially fine arts, plays an invaluable role in our societies’ cultural, historical, and economic growth. Fine arts are primarily developed for aesthetic purposes and are mainly expressed through painting, sculpture, and architecture. In recent years, thanks to technological improvements and drastic cost reductions, a large-scale digitization effort has been made, which has led to the increasing availability of large digitized fine art collections. This availability, coupled with recent advances in computer vision, has disclosed new opportunities, especially for researchers in this field, to assist the art community with automatic tools to analyze and better understand fine arts. Among other benefits, a deeper understanding of fine arts has the potential to make them more accessible to a broader population, both in terms of fruition and creation, thus supporting the spread of culture.
Following the success of the first two editions (2021, 2022), the workshop aims to provide an international forum for those wishing to present advancements in state-of-the-art, innovative research, ongoing projects, and academic and industrial reports on applying visual pattern extraction and recognition for a better understanding and fruition of fine arts. The workshop solicits contributions from computer vision and pattern recognition, artificial intelligence, and image processing.
