SHREC2024 - 3D Shape Retrieval Challenge 2024

At Eurographics 2024 Symposium on 3D Object Retrieval, 26-27 August, 2024

Nota bene: Full paper submissions will follow a two-stage review process and will be published in the international journal Computes & Graphics upon acceptance.

We strongly encourage to consider the graphics replicability stamp initiative,, and to apply for this additional sign of recognition.


The general objective of the 3D Shape Retrieval Challenge is to evaluate the effectiveness of 3D-shape retrieval algorithms. SHREC2024 is the eithteenth edition of the challenge. Like previous years, it is organized in conjunction with the Eurographics Symposium on 3D Object Retrieval, where the results will be reviewed and presented at the symposium.

Thanks to the efforts of previous track organizers, SHREC already provides many resources to compare and evaluate 3D retrieval methods. For this year's contest, we aim to explore new and updated tracks. Therefore, the participants are invited to have an active role in the organization of the event. This includes proposing track themes, building or acquiring a training and test collection, and deciding upon the queries, relevance assessment, and performance measures.

The participants of each track will collectively write a paper, which will be peer reviewed, and published in Computers & Graphics upon acceptance. At least one author per track must register for the symposium, and present the results. The registration must be unique for the paper, multiple papers on one registration does not count. We also cordially invite all other participants of a track to register and attend the symposium.


The following tracks are organized. For description of tasks, the collections, queries, the evaluation procedure, and time schedule, follow the links or contact the track organizer.
