*Special Issue of IET Image Processing on Advancements in Fine Art 
Pattern Extraction and Recognition*

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.

This special issue aims to offer 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 a better understanding and fruition of 
fine arts, soliciting contributions from pattern recognition, computer 
vision, artificial intelligence and image processing research areas. The 
special issue will be linked to the 2nd International Workshop on Fine 
Art Pattern Extraction and Recognition (FAPER2022). Authors of selected 
conference papers will be invited to extend and improve their 
contributions for this special issue, and authors are also invited to 
submit new contributions (non-conference papers).

Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Applications 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- Historical document analysis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 visual art domain
- Digitally enriched museum visits
- Smart interactive experiences in cultural sites
- Project, products or prototypes for cultural heritage
