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- Historical document analysis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
