=== Aim & Scope ===

Cultural heritage, especially fine arts, plays an invaluable role in the 
cultural, historical and economic growth of our societies. 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 an increasing 
availability of large digitized fine art collections. This availability, 
coupled with recent advances in pattern recognition and computer vision, 
has disclosed new opportunities, especially for researchers in these 
fields, to assist the art community with automatic tools to further 
analyze and understand fine arts. Among 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.

Following the success of the first edition, organized in conjunction 
with ICPR 2020, the aim of the workshop is to provide an international 
forum for those wishing 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 a better understanding and fruition of fine arts. The workshop 
solicits contributions from diverse areas such as pattern recognition, 
computer vision, artificial intelligence and image processing.

=== Topics ===

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Application of machine learning and deep learning to cultural heritage 
and digital humanities
- Computer vision and multimedia data processing for fine arts
- Generative adversarial networks for artistic data
- Augmented and virtual reality for cultural heritage
- 3D reconstruction of historical artifacts
- Point cloud segmentation and classification for cultural heritage
- Historical document analysis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
- Visual question answering and artwork captioning
- Art history and computer vision

=== Invited speaker ===

Eva Cetinic (Digital Visual Studies, University of Zurich, Switzerland) 
- "Beyond Similarity: From Stylistic Concepts to Computational Metrics"

Dr. Eva Cetinic is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at the 
Center for Digital Visual Studies at the University of Zurich. She 
previously worked as a postdoc in Digital Humanities and Machine 
Learning at the Department of Computer Science, Durham University, and 
as a postdoctoral researcher and professional associate at the Ruđer 
Boškovic Institute in Zagreb. She obtained her Ph.D. in Computer science 
from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of 
Zagreb in 2019 with the thesis titled "Computational detection of 
stylistic properties of paintings based on high-level image feature 
analysis". Besides being generally interested in the interdisciplinary 
field of digital humanities, her specific interests focus on studying 
new research methodologies rooted in the intersection of artificial 
intelligence and art history. Particularly, she is interested in 
exploring deep learning techniques for computational image understanding 
and multi-modal reasoning in the context of visual art.

=== Workshop modality ===

The workshop will be held in a hybrid form, both virtual and in presence 
participation will be allowed.

=== Submission guidelines ===

Accepted manuscripts will be included in the ICIAP 2021 proceedings, 
which will be published by Springer as Lecture Notes in Computer Science 
series (LNCS). Authors of selected papers will be invited to extend and 
improve their contributions for a Special Issue on IET Image Processing.

Please follow the guidelines provided by Springer when preparing your 
contribution. The maximum number of pages is 10 + 2 pages for 
references. Each contribution will be reviewed on the basis of 
originality, significance, clarity, soundness, relevance and technical 

Once accepted, the presence of at least one author at the event and the 
oral presentation of the paper are expected.

Please submit your manuscript through EasyChair:
