The aims of this study were (a) to compare water polo game-related statistics by context (winning and losing teams) and phase (preliminary, classification, and semifinal/bronze medal/gold medal), and (b) identify characteristics that discriminate performances for each phase. The game-related statistics of the 230 men's matches played in World Championships(More)
This study develops multivariate models to predict swimming performance based on multidimensional assessment. 66 male (age 13.6 +/- 0.6 y) and 67 female (11.5 +/- 0.6 y) swimmers undertook a test battery including a sports background and training questionnaire, anthropometry, general and specific fitness tests, and technique. Competitive performance (LEN(More)
Sketch-based 3D shape retrieval has become an important research topic in content-based 3D object retrieval. The aim of this track is to measure and compare the performance of sketch-based 3D shape retrieval methods implemented by different participants over the world. The track is based on a new sketch-based 3D shape benchmark, which contains two types of(More)
Content-based image retrieval requires a natural image (e.g, a photo) as query, but the absence of such a query image is usually the reason for a search. An easy way to express the user query is using a line-based hand-drawing, a sketch, leading to the sketch-based image retrieval. Few authors have addressed image retrieval based on a sketch as query, and(More)
Sketch-based 3D shape retrieval has become an important research topic in content-based 3D object retrieval. The aim of this track is to measure and compare the performance of sketch-based 3D shape retrieval methods based on a large scale hand-drawn sketch query dataset which has 7200 sketches and a generic 3D model target dataset containing 1258 3D models.(More)
Since 3D models are becoming more popular, the need for effective methods capable of retrieving 3D models are becoming crucial. Current methods require an example 3D model as query. However, in many cases, such a query is not easy to get. An alternative is using a hand-draw sketch as query. We present a structure-based local approach (STELA) for retrieving(More)

Childhood obesity is currently one of the most prevailing and challenging public health issues among industrialized countries and of international priority. The global prevalence of obesity poses such a serious concern that the World Health Organization (WHO) has described it as a "global epidemic." Recent literature suggests that the genesis of the problem(More)
Although sketch based image retrieval (SBIR) is still a young research area, there are many applications capable of exploiting this retrieval paradigm, such as web searching and pattern detection. Moreover, nowadays drawing a simple sketch query turns very simple since touch screen based technology is being expanded. In this work, we propose a novel local(More)
