3rd International Workshop on Fine Art Pattern Extraction and Recognition

                             *F A P E R*  2023

                    Udine, Italy, September 11, 2023

inside the Digital Humanities Hub of the 22st International Conference 
on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP 2023)

*extended submission deadline*: July 12, 2023

___ *Aim & Scope* ___

Cultural heritage, especially fine arts, plays an invaluable role in our 
societies’ cultural, historical, and economic growth. 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 the increasing 
availability of large digitized fine art collections. This availability, 
coupled with recent advances in computer vision, has disclosed new 
opportunities, especially for researchers in this field, to assist the 
art community with automatic tools to analyze and better understand fine 
arts. Among other benefits, a deeper understanding of fine arts has the 
potential to make them more accessible to a broader population, both in 
terms of fruition and creation, thus supporting the spread of culture.

The workshop aims to provide an international forum for those wishing to 
present advancements in state-of-the-art, innovative research, ongoing 
projects, and academic and industrial reports on applying visual pattern 
extraction and recognition for a better understanding and fruition of 
fine arts. The workshop solicits contributions from computer vision and 
pattern recognition, artificial intelligence, and image processing.

___ *Topics* ___

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Computer vision and multimedia data processing for fine arts
- Creative AI
- 3D reconstruction of historical artifacts
- Content-based retrieval in the art domain
