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: 8th July 2022 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previously unpublished, works related to Computer Vision and Cultural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:

Aims and scope
The digitisation of large quantities of analogue data and the massive
production of born-digital documents for many years now provide us with
large volumes of varied multimedia data (images, maps, text, video, 3D
objects, multi-sensor data, etc.), an important feature of which is that
they are cross-domain. “Cross-domain” reflects the fact that these data may
have been acquired in very different conditions: different acquisition
systems, times and points of view (e.g. a 1962 postcard from the Arc de
Triomphe vs. a recent street-view acquisition by mobile mapping of the same
monument). These data represent an extremely rich heritage that can be
exploited in a wide variety of fields, from Social Sciences and Humanities
to land use and territorial policies, including smart city, urban planning,
smart tourism and culture, creative media and entertainment. In terms of
research in computer science and artificial intelligence, they address
challenging problems related to the diversity, specificity and volume of
the media, the variety of content descriptors (potentially including the
time dimension), the veracity of the data, and the different user needs
with respect to engaging with this rich material and the extraction of
value out of the data. These challenges are reflected in various research
topics such as multimodal and mixed media search, automatic content
analysis, multimedia linking and recommendation, and big data analysis and
visualisation where scientific bottlenecks may be exacerbated by the time
dimension – which also provides topics of interest such as multimodal time
series analysis. The objective of this workshop is to present and discuss
the latest and most significant trends in the analysis, structuring and
understanding of multimedia contents dedicated to the valorization of
heritage, with the emphasis on enabling access to the big data of the past.
We welcome research contributions for the following (but not limited to)

   - Multimedia and cross-domain data search, interlinking and
   recommendation• Dating and spatialization of historical data
   - Mixed media data access and indexing
   - Multi-modal deep learning
   - Deep learning in adverse conditions (transfer learning, learning with
   side information, etc.)
   - Multi-modal time series analysis, evolution modelling
   - Multi-modal & multi-temporal data rendering
   - Heritage - Building Information Modelling, Art Virtualisation
   - HCI / Interfaces for large-scale datasets
   - Smart digitisation of massive quantities of data
   - Bench-marking, Open Data Movement
   - Generative modelling of cultural heritage

encoded as PDF and using the ACM Article Template. For paper guidelines,
please visit, and refer to the
"Paper Format" under "Submission Instructions". Peer Review and publication

“double-blind” review policy. All papers will be peer-reviewed by experts
in the field, they will receive at least two reviews. Acceptance will be
based on relevance to the workshop, scientific novelty, and technical
