      News!
      SHREC Websites: NIST servers have some migration issues, we have a back up sever to provide all the SHREC datasets that we ever created. You could find the working links from this website (i.e., by searching the keyword SHREC). 

      -----
      September, 2020, we published an extended CVIU journal based on SHREC'19 and SHREC'18 Sketch/Image Tracks! 
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Feb. 1, 2019, we are organizing two SHREC'19 tracks on Extended 3D Scene Retrieval. Track websites: SceneSBR2019SceneIBR2019!

      Jan. 18, 2018, we are organizing two SHREC'18 tracks on 3D Scene Retrieval. Track websites: SceneSBR2018SceneIBR2018!
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      I am always looking for PhD/Master/Undergraduate students who have motivation in doing research in 3D Object Retrieval, 2D/3D Shape Analysis, Deep Learning, and 2D Scene Sketch Understanding. If you are interested, please contact me via my email


      Research Topics
    • Research Fields: Visual Computing, Computer Graphics, Multimedia, Computer Vision, Machine Learning

    • Research Interests: 3D Object Retrieval, 3D Modeling,  3D Scene Understanding, Deep Learning, 3D Computer Vision

    • My main research interests are within the broad area of visual computing, which involves computer graphics, machine learning and computer vision. Recently, I mainly have concentrated on deep learning-based sketch-based 3D object retrieval techniques. 

    • I have great interest in diverse topics of 3D model retrieval, such as: Query-by-model, Query-by-sketch, Partial similarity retrieval as well as 3D model alignment.
      My PhD supervisor is Asst. Prof. 
      Henry Johan. My NIST supervisor is Computer Specialist Afzal Godil. My Texas State University Postdoc supervisor is Assoc. Prof. Yijuan Lu

    • During my PhD period, I mainly targeted visual similarity and hybrid approaches to solve different retrieval issues. I also conducted a novel research on 3D normalization and developed a simple but effective algorithm based on the idea of minimization of views’ projection area. In NIST, as a guest researcher, I concentrated on local features and Bag-of-Words framework for non-rigid object retrieval. 


      Short Bio
      Dr. Bo Li is a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in the School of Computing at the University of Southern Mississippi. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) in 2012. He was a teacher in the School of Science at Xi’an Polytechnic University (China) from 2002 to 2007. From 2005 to 2007, he was a senior software testing engineer in ZTE Corporation in Xi'an, China. He was a Guest Researcher in National Institute of Standards and Technology (Gaithersburg, Maryland) from 2011 to 2012. From 2012 to 2014, he was a Postdoc in Texas State University (San Marcos, Texas). He was a Non-Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Central Missouri (Lee's Summit, Missouri) from 2015 to 2016. His current research interests in visual computing focus on deep learning-based 3D scene understanding. He is the recipient of the top first winners of 2013 and 2016 Eurographics SHREC competitions in large-scale sketch-based 3D retrieval track, range scan track, and low-cost depth-sensing camera track. He has published more than 30 journal and conference papers, including prestigious ones like CVIU, IJCV, and ICMR.
