Call for participation

We are happy to announce the Visual Object Tracking Challenge VOT2015 that will be held in conjunction with ICCV2015. The VOT2015 will be the 3rd in a şeries of highly successful challenges in short-term single target tracking. We are also announcing the first VOT thermal imagery tracking sub-challenge VOT-TIR2015.
The results of the VOT2015 and VOT-TIR2015 challenges will be presented at the ICCV2015 VOT workshop.

Participate by:
1. Sending the results of your tracker
2. Sending a full-length paper

We are soliciting (not necessarily original) trackers to participate in competition on a common dataset and evaluation methodology provided by the committee.
The participants of sufficiently well performing trackers (i.e., outperform a baseline tracker provided by VOT committee) will become co-authors of results paper presented at the ICCV2015 VOT workshop.

The VOT committee also solicits full-length papers describing:
* Original or improved trackers as well as papers giving new insights into existing trackers or class of trackers.
* Novel ways of using and extending the VOT framework for tracker performance analysis.

1. New fully annotated dataset compiled with the VOT dataset construction methodology
2. New toolkit for fast experiments execution with tutorials
3. New sub-challenge VOT-TIR
