VISART VI "Where Computer Vision Meets Art"

6th Workshop on Computer VISion for ART Analysis
In conjunction with the 2022 European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV),
Tel-Aviv, Israel

Full & Extended Abstract Paper Submission: 27th June 2022
Notification of Acceptance: 8th August 2022
Camera-Ready Paper Due:  15th August 2022
Workshop: TBA (23-24th October)



Following the success of the previous editions of the Workshop on Computer
VISion for ART Analysis held in 2012, `14, `16, `18 and 20 we present the
VISART VI workshop, in conjunction with the 2022 European Conference on
Computer Vision (ECCV 2022). VISART will continue its role as a forum for
the presentation, discussion and publication of Computer Vision (CV)
techniques for the analysis of art. As with the previous edition, VISART VI
offers two tracks:

  1.  Computer Vision for Art - technical work (standard ECCV submission,
14 pages excluding references)
  2.  Uses and Reflection of Computer Vision for Art (Extended abstract, 4
pages, excluding references)

The recent explosion in the digitisation of artworks highlights the
concrete importance of application in the overlap between CV and art; such
as the automatic indexing of databases of paintings and drawings, or
automatic tools for the analysis of cultural heritage. Such an encounter,
however, also opens the door both to a wider computational understanding of
the image beyond photo-geometry, and to a deeper critical engagement with
how images are mediated, understood or produced by CV techniques in the
`Age of Image-Machines' (T. J. Clark). Submissions to our first track
should primarily consist of technical papers; our second track, therefore,
encourages critical essays or extended abstracts from art historians,
artists, cultural historians, media theorists and computer scientists.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers in
the fields of computer vision and the digital humanities with art and
cultural historians and artists, to promote interdisciplinary
collaborations, and to expose the hybrid community to cutting-edge
techniques and open problems on both sides of this fascinating area of

This workshop, in conjunction with ECCV 2022, calls for high-quality,
previously unpublished, works related to Computer Vision and Cultural
History. Submissions for both tracks should conform to the ECCV 2022
proceedings style and will be double-blind peer-reviewed by at least three
reviewers. However, extended abstracts will not appear in the conference
proceedings. Papers must be submitted online through the CMT submission
system at:

- Art History and Computer Vision
- Image and visual representation in art
- Approaches for generative art
- 3D reconstruction from visual art or historical sites
- 2D and 3D human pose and gesture estimation in art
- Multi-modal multimedia systems and human-machine interaction
- Multimedia databases and digital libraries for artistic research
- Visual Question & Answering (VQA) or Captioning for Art
