Call for Papers

With the vast development of Internet capacity and speed, as well as wide
adoptation of media technologies in people's daily life, it is highly
demanding to efficiently process or organize video events rapidly emerged
from the Internet (e.g., YouTube), wider surveillance networks, mobile
devices, smart cameras, etc. The human visual perception system could,
without difficulty, interpret and recognize thousands of events in videos,
despite high level of video object clutters, different types of scene
context, variability of motion scales, appearance changes, occlusions and
object interactions. For a computer vision system, it has been very
challenging to achieve automatic video event understanding for decades.
Broadly speaking, those challenges include robust detection of events under
motion clutters, event interpretation under complex scenes, multi-level
semantic event inference, putting events in context and multiple cameras,
event inference from object interactions, etc.

In recent years, steady progress has been made towards better models for
video event categorization and recognition, e.g., from modeling events with
bag of spatial temporal features to discovering event context, from
detecting events using a single camera to inferring events through a
distributed camera network, and from low-level event feature extraction and
description to high-level semantic event classification and recognition.
However, the current progress in video event analysis is still far more from
its promise. It is still very difficult to retrieve or categorise a specific
video segment based on their content in a real multimedia system or in
surveillance applications. The existing techniques are usually tested on
simplified scenarios, such as the KTH dataset, and real-life applications
are much more challenging and require special attention. To advance the
progress further, we must adapt recent or existing approaches to find new
solutions for intelligent video event understanding.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for recent research advances
in the area of video event categorisation, tagging and retrieval. The
workshop seeks original high-quality submissions from leading researchers
and practitioners in academia as well as industry, dealing with theories,
applications and databases of visual event recognition. Real-life
applications in the context of multimedia metadata, i.e. event analysis and
recognition on videos from the Internet, surveillance cameras, and mobile
devices, etc., will be the theme of this year鈥檚 workshop. Topics include the
following, but not limited to:

- Motion interpretation and grouping
- Human Action representation and recognition
- Abnormal event detection
- Contextual event inference
- Event recognition among a distributed camera network
- Multi-modal event recognition
- Spatial temporal features for event categorization
- Hierarchical event recognition
- Probabilistic graph models for event reasoning
- Machine learning for event recognition
- Global/local event descriptors
- Metadata construction for event recognition
- Bottom up and top down approaches for event recognition
- Event-based video segmentation and summarization
- Video event database gathering and annotation
- Efficient indexing and concepts modeling for video event retrieval
- Semantic-based video event retrieval
- On-line video event tagging
- Evaluation methodologies for event-based systems
- Event-based applications (security, sports, news, etc.)
