IEEE Workshop on Motion and Video Computing (WMVC)

January 8-9, 2008, Copper Mountain, Colorado

Sponsored by IEEE PAMI  and to be held in conjunction with IEEE Workshop on 
Application of Computer Vision (WACV)


With the ubiquitous presence and availability of video data and its increasing 
importance in many applications including security, television, entertainment, 
and Internet, it becomes increasingly important to perform image analysis and 
understanding from the video imagery.    Following the success of its 
predecessors, this workshop is aimed at providing a forum for computer vision 
researchers to share and demonstrate their latest research in motion, video 
analysis, video computing and related areas, and to explore future directions 
and applications in video and motion analysis.    Like the previous workshops 
on motion and video analysis, this workshops program will feature high quality 
double-blind reviewed papers and posters, invited talks, panel discussions, and 
demonstrations. The theme of this workshop will be video data interpretation 
and understanding. While papers addressing the traditional topics such as 
optical flow estimation, segmentation, structure from motion, and motion 
estimation will continue to be solicited, they must clearly demonstrate how 
they advance the state of the art with quantitative comparisons with existing 
methods. For this workshop, we especially welcome papers addressing the issue 
of video analysis for interpretation and understanding.  Article submissions 
are sought on novel advances to state of the art in the areas of (not limited 
to):

    * Distributed multi-sensor and multitarget detection and tracking
    * Human activity recognition
    * Gesture and Gait analysis recognition
    * Performance evaluation of video understanding systems
    * Video activity modeling and recognition using graphical models
    * Video retrieval
    * Video for surveillance and biometrics
    * Video event detection and recognition
    * Extraction of Semantics from Video

Papers should be submitted electronically via the workshop website at 
http://www.ecse.rpi.edu/motion08 and follow the instructions there.  They 
should not include any information that would indicate the author's identity 
(references to authors' previous work should be left blank).
