PArts can woRth like The whole (PART2021)

The first international workshop “PArts can woRth like The whole” (PART2021) will be held in conjunction with the 21th International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP2021)

Quite often the useful data for an analysis task are not available in an optimal condition. This may be due to the occlusions or the noise affecting the acquisition of the samples, or in some cases the problem itself is conceived in a way that a solution comes from the analysis of smaller portions of the input. Considering the computer vision problems, for example, it is rather common having occluded objects to recognize or to reconstruct. In failure analysis, a damaged condition of an object cannot be inferred by analyzing the object as a whole but detecting those parts of the object that may present anomalies. It happens, for example, in the cultural heritage field where the analysis of smallest areas may improve the overall result or, even represent the only way forward, as in the case of  analysis of damaged pieces of arts or the reconstruction of the latter, respectively.The workshop aims to collect contributions from all those solutions to problems that can be solved by segmenting and analyzing parts of an object.
Topics of interest for the workshop include but are not limited to:

  • Biometric recognition using parts
  • Face Parts Analysis and Recognition
  • Object reconstruction¬†
  • Selective Head Pose Estimation
  • Impainting and Image restoration
  • Failure Analysis
  • Generative Models for Reconstruction
  • Pieces of arts analysis
  • Anomalies detection in images
  • Damages detection in objects
  • Biometrics recognition under occlusions

Two challenges are linked to the PART2021 workshop, both held by ICIAP2021, that are CLEOPATRA and M2FRED.
