3rd Workshop on Computer Vision for Art Analysis.

3rd Workshop on Computer Vision for Art Analysis
October 2016, Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Following the success of the previous editions of the Workshop on Computer VISion for ART Analysis held in 2012 and 2014, we present the VISART III workshop, in conjunction with the European Conference on Computer Vision 2016. 
There is no doubt that Computer Vision benefits from analysis of Art, not only for applications such as indexing into databases of paintings and drawings but also to move towards a deeper understanding of images in general. Historians of art and culture benefit from Computer Vision and related technologies via the automatic tools for assisting in the analysis of artefacts of all kinds.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together leading researches in the fields of computer vision and art & cultural history to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and expose the audience to current results and open problems on both sides of this fascinating area of study.
This one-day workshop in conjunction with ECCV 2016, calls for high-quality, previously unpublished, works related to Computer Vision and Cultural History. Submissions should conform to the ECCV 2016 proceedings style. Papers must be submitted online through the submission system that will be announced from this page and will be double-blind peer reviewed by at least three reviewers.

Topics:

* 3D reconstruction and image metrology from paintings
* Large scale 3D reconstruction of Historical sites
* Object and people detection in art
* Authentication and Forensics
* Image representation in art
* Visualisation and Interaction
* Computer Vision and Cultural Heritage

Below are some suggested webcomics that can make this exhibition more interesting to our visitors.The list below was adapted for use from Buzzfeed.com, scroll.in and other sites. Some of these comics might be sensitive to their viewers. I would advise viewer’s discretion. This is not a comprehensive list but it provides a meaningful insight into the mysterious world of the webcomics.

Call for papers
‘Rethinking Revolutions’ - London School of Economics - 26th May 2017

Over the past twenty years, the study of revolution has lost the centrality it once enjoyed. Yet the study of revolutions has never been so important: in thinking through the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, exploring the ideology of ISIS and other Islamist groups, understanding self-proclaimed revolutionary movements in the West, and interpreting the experience of states that continue to see themselves as revolutionary, such as China, Iran, and Cuba. The study of revolution needs to catch up with the actual experience of revolutionary movements and states.

One barrier to this endeavor is the fracturing of the study of revolutions into different disciplines and sub-fields. This workshop seeks to bring together scholars and students working on revolutions from different disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. Sociology, International Relations, History, and Political Science), sub-fields (e.g. social movements…
