- Abstract of the project: it is aimed at coordinating research on representing, modeling and processing knowledge related to digital shapes, where by shape it is meant any individual object having a visual appearance which exists in some (two-, three- or higher- dimensional) space (e.g., pictures, sketches, images, 3D objects, videos, 4D animations, etc.).
