CFP: 2nd Workshop on Evaluation of Articulated Human Motion and Pose Estimation (EHuM2), with CVPR 2007

CFP: 2nd Workshop on Evaluation of Articulated Human Motion and Pose 
Estimation (EHuM2), with CVPR 2007


EHuM2: 2nd Workshop on Evaluation of Articulated Human Motion and Pose 
With IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) 2007
June 22, 2007, Minneapolis, MN

There has been a large body of work developed in the last $ years on 
the human pose estimation and tracking from video. Progress however has 
been limited because of the lack of common datasets and error metrics for 
quantitative comparison. The goal of this workshop is to (1) establish the 
current state of the art in the human pose estimation and tracking from 
single and multiple camera views, (2) discuss future directions in the 
field, and (3) introduce a benchmark database and error metrics for 
comparing current and future methods. To this end a new (HumanEva) dataset 
has been introduced.

The HumanEva dataset contains multiple calibrated video sequences 
(grayscale and color) that are synchronized with 3D body poses obtained 
from a motion capture system. The database contains multiple subjects 
performing a variety of common actions (e.g. walking, jogging, gesturing, 
etc.). The error metrics for computing error in 2D and 3D pose will be 
provided to participants. The dataset contains training, validation and 
testing (with withheld ground truth) sets.

The workshop program will consist of papers, invited talks and a 
discussion panel. The list of possible topics includes (but is not limited 
to) the following:

-   Tracking and pose estimation (in 2D and 3D);
-   Priors for human motion and dynamics;
-   Appearance models;
-   Discriminative and generative approaches for articulated pose 
-   Quantitative metrics for evaluation of pose estimation and tracking.

All submissions will be required to use the dataset provided and the 
on-line evaluation system for evaluation of results. Due to the 
retrospective and prospective nature of the workshop, we will encourage 
submissions of both original unpublished works as well as surveys where 
prior approaches are evaluated using the data and the metrics provided. 
Submissions should contain an extensive experimental section and enough 
algorithmic details to allow reproducibility of results. We invite 
submissions of full length 8-page papers in the 2-column CVPR style.

We encourage authors of papers at the main CVPR conference to present an 
evaluation of their method at the workshop. For CVPR-accepted papers, 
authors should submit (1) a copy of the CVPR paper; (2) a brief writeup 
describing experimental analysis with the EHuM dataset.

Reviewing Process:
All papers will be subject to a double-blind review process by a program 
committee of leading international researchers with experience in human 
motion and pose estimation. Each paper will be reviewed by 2 members of 
the program committee. Based on these reviews, the workshop organizers 
will decide on acceptance and presentation mode (oral/spotlights). Instead 
of having a poster session, we propose to have short oral spotlight 

Call for participation:                   January 30, 2007
Submission deadline:                      April 20, 2007
Notification to authors:                  May 18, 2007
Workshop in Minneapolis, Minnesota:       June 22, 2007
Submission of revised IJCV manuscripts:   August, 2007

In lieu of a proceedings, authors will be invited to submit extended 
versions of their papers to a special issue of International Journal of 
Computer Vision (IJCV) on human pose estimation and tracking with a 
deadline in August 2007.
