Call for papers

2007 IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal based Surveillance (AVSS)

Session on Video tracking in complex scenes

Tracking moving objects is one of the basic tasks performed by surveillance systems. The target current position and its movement are relevant information to fulfil several applications as activity analysis, objects counting, identification, stolen object detection, etc. Many tracking algorithms have been applied for surveillance applications. However when the scene/situation is complex the performances relevantly decrease affecting consequently further surveillance functionalities. In this domain of application, the complexity of a perceived scene/situation can present multiple aspects as high number of distracting moving targets, multi-sensor video set-up, static and dynamic non stationary occlusions, 24-hours all-weathers outdoor functioning, complex backgrounds.

This special session aims to attract papers that present state of the art methodologies for methods proposed in recent years to improve object tracking performances in complex scenes. We particularly encourage the submission of papers in the following topics:

- Bayesian method for conjunctive multi-target tracking
- kernel-based method for multi-target tracking
- feature-based algorithm for multi-target tracking
- feature selection for tracking
- collaborative trackers
- on-line tracking parameters regulation
- definition of metrics for evaluating the complexity of the scene/situation
- definition of metrics for evaluating the performance of multi-target trackers 
Note
Extended versions of the papers of this special session will be considered for publication in a special issue of  the EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing.
