Aim & Scope

Cultural heritage, in particular fine art, has invaluable importance for 
the cultural, historic, and economic growth of our societies. Fine art 
is developed primarily for aesthetic purposes, and it is mainly 
concerned with paintings, sculptures, and architectures. In the last few 
years, due to technology improvements and drastically declining costs, a 
large-scale digitization effort has been made, leading to a growing 
availability of large digitized fine art collections. This availability, 
along with the recent advancements in pattern recognition and computer 
vision, has opened new opportunities for computer science researchers to 
assist the art community with automatic tools to analyse and further 
understand fine arts. Among the other benefits, a deeper understanding 
of fine arts has the potential to make them more accessible to a wider 
population, both in terms of fruition and creation, thus supporting the 
spread of culture.

The ability to recognize meaningful patterns in fine art inherently 
falls within the domain of human perception, and this perception can be 
extremely hard to conceptualize. Thus, visual-related features, such as 
those automatically learned by deep learning models, can be the key to 
tackling problems of extracting useful representations from low-level 
colour and texture features. These representations can assist in various 
art-related tasks, ranging from object detection in paintings to 
artistic style categorization, useful for examples in museum and art 
gallery websites.

This special issue will provide the researchers from diverse areas such 
as pattern recognition, computer vision, artificial intelligence, and 
image processing, with the opportunity to present advancements in the 
state of the art, innovative research, ongoing projects, and academic 
and industrial reports on the application of visual pattern extraction 
and recognition for the better understanding and fruition of fine arts.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Application of machine learning and deep learning to cultural heritage
- Computer vision and multimedia data
- Generative adversarial networks for artistic data
- Augmented and virtual reality for cultural heritage
- 3D reconstruction of historical artifacts
- Historical document analysis
- Content-based retrieval in the art domain
- Speech, audio, and music analysis from historical archives
- Digitally enriched museum visits
- Smart interactive experiences in cultural sites
- Projects, products, or prototypes for cultural heritage restoration, 
preservation, and fruition
