Our paper “Comparative study of global color and texture descriptors for web image retrieval”, published on the Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation, was one of two runner-ups for the Best Paper of the Year 2012/2013 Award.
The paper is the work of RECOD former Ph.D. student and postdoc fellow Otavio Penatti — now a researcher at Samsung Research Brazil — and RECOD faculty members Profs. Eduardo Valle and Ricardo Torres. The paper was previously featured as the most downloaded for the year of 2012.
The fulltext can be viewed at the publisher site — it will be on open access until the end of 2014. (The last preprint before the final publisher modifications is also available permanently on open access.)
