# 3D Object Retrieval Workshop Series
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 various domains such as computer vision, computational 
geometry, molecular biology and medicine.

Indeed, the rapid evolution in graphics hardware and software, in 
particular the availability of low cost 3D scanners and modeling tools, 
has greatly facilitated 3D model acquisition, creation, and 
manipulation, giving the opportunity to a large user community to 
experience applications using 3D models. As the number of 3D models is 
growing rapidly, 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.

The aim of the 3DOR Workshop series is to stimulate researchers from 
different fields such as 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. This 
will provide a cross-fertilization ground that will stimulate 
discussions on the next steps in this important research area.

The 5th Eurographics Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval (3DOR 2012) is a 
co-event of the 33rd Annual Conference of the European Association for 
Computer Graphics (Eurographics 2012). The workshop will take place on 
May 13, 2012 in Cagliari, Italy.

# Call for Papers, Posters and System Demonstrations
Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished research and 
practical applications in all areas of 3D Object Retrieval. Submissions 
are invited in form of full and short papers, as well as poster and 
system presentations. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

- 3D object similarity and matching
- 3D object classification, indexing, and mining
- Similarity of non-rigid shapes
- Feature extraction, decomposition, and segmentation
- Multi-level representations for matching and retrieval
- Partial, part-in-whole, and many-to-many matching
- Matching under uncertainty and noise
- Semantics-driven 3D object retrieval and classification
- Sketch-based retrieval
- Query interfaces and search modalities
- Benchmarking issues
- Relevance feedback methods
- Active learning
- Generative/discriminative approaches in 3D object categorization
- Applications in multimedia, CAD, games, biometrics, e-science, 
e-learning, medicine, biology, and cultural heritage.

This year’s workshop will also feature the 7th Shape Retrieval 
Evaluation Contest (SHREC’2012). A separate call for participation will 
be issued later on.

Extended versions of selected papers from the Workshop will appear, 
after a further review, in special issues of international journals. 
Selected papers from previous workshops appeared in special issues of 
The Visual Computer (TVC) journal and the International Journal of 
Computer Vision (IJCV) published by Springer.
