Call For Papers

Call for Papers: 5th Int. Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding (HBU'2014) to be held in conjunction with ECCV'14, 12 September, Zurich, Switzerland

"Focus Theme: Computer Vision for Complex Social Interactions"
Short description:

The Fifth Workshop on Human Behavior Understanding, organized as a satellite to ECCV'14, will gather researchers dealing with the problem of modeling human behavior under its multiple facets (expression of emotions, display of complex social and relational behaviors, performance of individual or joint actions, etc.), with the focus topic of computer vision for complex social interactions.

While different aspects of social interactions are tackled in several venues, this workshop will solicit computer vision solutions that clearly advance the field, and chart the future of computer analysis of complex interactions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
-Human behavior capture technology and benchmark datasets
-Social activity detection, tracking, reconstruction, and recognition
-Social scene representation and understanding
-Social behavior modeling and prediction
-Multimodal social signal integration
-Causality and reciprocity of social interaction
-Applications of social intelligence

The HBU is organized as a full-day, single track event with invited talks, oral and poster presentations.

Submissions must represent original material. Papers are accepted for review with the understanding that the same work has been neither submitted to, nor published in, another journal or conference. All manuscripts will undergo a rigorous review process by the members of the program committee.
