Computer vision approaches have made tremendous efforts toward understanding shape from various data formats, especially since entering the deep learning era. Although accurate results have been obtained in detection, recognition, and segmentation, there is less attention and research on extracting topological and geometric information from shapes. These geometric representations provide compact and intuitive abstractions for modeling, synthesis, compression, matching, and analysis. Extracting such representations is significantly different from segmentation and recognition tasks, as they contain both local and global information about the shape.

To advance the state of the art in topological and geometric shape analysis using deep learning, we aim to gather researchers from computer vision, computational geometry, computer graphics, and machine learning in this third edition of “Deep Learning for Geometric Computing” workshop at ICCV 2021. The workshop encapsulates competitions with prizes, proceedings, keynotes, paper presentations, and a fair and diverse environment for brainstorming about future research collaborations.
