ICCV09 Workshop on Video-Oriented Object and Event Classification (VOEC'09)


Techniques for video oriented object and event classification have attracted
much attention owing to the great potentials in surveillance, video
summarization, video semantic understanding and search, advertisement,
robotics, and human computer interface. Recent rapid advances have paved
roads for video-oriented object and event recognition. However, there still
exist many key issues unsolved, e.g. How to design effective and efficient
features dedicated to video data? How to manage large-scale video database?
How to handle low-quality videos? How to preserve privacy in surveillance
application? The main purpose of this one day workshop is to provide a forum
for researchers to discuss the latest progress in video based object and
event classification, and also provide a platform for researchers to
understand the main challenges and key issues in this area.

*Original high-quality papers are solicited on topics including, but not
limited to*

1.      Feature design for video-based object and event classification

2.      Machine learning techniques for video-based object and event

3.      Video-based biometric (e.g. face, gesture, gait, etc)

4.      Video-based object detection (e.g. human, car, etc)

5.      Motion analysis in video (e.g. motion segmentation, structure from
motion, etc)

6.      Action, activity, and event classification in videos

7.      Techniques for large-scale video analysis

8.      Techniques for low-quality video analysis (e.g. super-resolution,
video stabilization, etc)

9.      Techniques for extracting semantics yet preserving privacy (e.g.
blind vision middleware)

10.     Other video based applications

*Important Dates:*

1.      Paper Submission: May 20, 2009

2.      Notification of Acceptance: July 01, 2009
