Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the study of neural networks in three-dimensional space has received widespread attention from many researchers. Subsequently, neural networks also bring new challenges to 3D point cloud data processing. Compared to traditional methods, neural networks necessitate the utilization of multimodal data to construct enriched 3D point cloud datasets. Simultaneously, the difficulty in annotating 3D data calls for innovative approaches employing 2D information to supervise 3D network training or guide 3D information annotation. Moreover, 3D point cloud data processing, such as noise reduction, precise densification, registration, and uniformization, is crucial to optimize point cloud data for subsequent applications, including recognition, segmentation, semantic understanding, the construction of geometric models, etc. This Special Issue seeks to establish a collaborative platform for researchers to delve into and propose effective solutions for the following critical aspects: (1) strategies for leveraging multimodal data to build comprehensive 3D point cloud datasets to facilitate the robust analysis and training of 3D models; (2) novel methodologies leveraging 2D information to supervise the training of 3D networks or guide the annotation of 3D information; and (3) innovative techniques to preprocess 3D point cloud data to optimize the quality and uniformity of point cloud data.

Submissions exploring, but not limited to, the following topics are welcome:

  • Multimodal data integration for comprehensive 3D point cloud dataset construction;
  • Novel approaches for guiding 3D network training through 2D supervision;
  • Employing 2D information to guide 3D information annotation;
  • Advanced techniques of preprocessing 3D point cloud data for optimal downstream applications, including noise cleaning, precise densification, registration, uniformization, etc.
