CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 SHREC2020 - 3D Shape Retrieval Challenge 2020

At Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval.
Contact: shrec@cs.uu.nl

New this year: In 2020, full SHREC papers will follow a two-stage review process and will be published in the international journal Computes & Graphics upon acceptance.

Introduction
The general objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Contest is to evaluate the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. SHREC2020 is the fifteenth edition of the contest. Like previous years, it is organized in conjunction with the Eurographics 2020 Workshop on 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. . 

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.

Procedure

The following list is a step-by-step description of the activities:

  1. Track organizers have sent their proposal describing the envisioned task, collection, queries, ground truth, evaluation method, and expected number of participants.
  2. The tracks are selected, and are listed at the SHREC web page. The track organizers start up their track.
  3. Participants register for the tracks they want to participate in.
  4. Each track is performed according to its own time schedule.
  5. The track organizers collect the results.
  6. The track results are combined into a joint paper, to be submitted for review to Computers & Graphics.
  7. The description of the tracks and their results are presented at the Workshop on 3D Object Retrieval, 4-5 September 2020
