Call For Papers


SHREC2015 - 3D Shape Retrieval Contest 2015
At Eurographics 2015 Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval,

December 15 - Submission deadline for track proposals

The general objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest is to evaluate the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. SHREC'15 is the tenth edition of the contest. Like previous years, it is organized in conjunction with the Eurographics 2015- Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval, where the results will be reviewed by the chairs of the workshop and included in the workshop proceedings.

Thanks to the efforts of previous track organizers, SHREC already provides many resources to compare and evaluate 3D retrieval methods. For this year's contest, we aim to explore new and updated tracks. Therefore, the participants are invited to have an active role in the organization of the event. This includes proposing track themes, building or acquiring a test collection, and deciding upon the queries, relevance assessment, and performance measures.

The participants of each track will collectively write a paper, which will be published in the proceedings of the Eurographics Workshop 3D Object Retrieval. At least one author per track must register for the workshop, and present the results. We also cordially invite all participants of a track to register and attend the workshop.

The tracks organized in the past years have covered different aspects and tasks of 3D shape retrieval, for example: rigid or non-rigid models; partial (i.e. range scan) or complete models; sketch-based 3D retrieval; generic or domain specific models (i.e. CAD, Biometrics, Architectural and Protein), and correspondence, robustness, stability, registration, classification, and machine learning.

Now, we solicit again proposals for tracks. You may opt for one of the above themes, or propose new ones. Track organizers are responsible for all aspects of organizing the track, such as: the task, the data collection (copyright issues, etc.), the queries, the ground truth, the evaluation method, the procedural aspects, writing the final paper in collaboration with the contestants, and submitting it.

See for examples of organizational aspects of previous tracks.

The following list is a step-by-step description of the activities:
1. Potential track organizers send their proposal to, describing the envisioned task, collection, queries, ground truth, evaluation method, and expected number of participants.
2. Promising tracks and their organizers will be listed at the SHREC web page, the track organizers start working out the details.
3. Participants register for the tracks they want to participate in.
4. Each track is performed according to its own schedule.
5. The track organizers collect the results.
6. The track results are combined into a joint paper, to be included in the proceedings of the Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval,
7. The description of the tracks and their results are presented at the Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval (May 2-3, 2015),
