CFP: VS2008 The Eighth IEEE International Workshop on Visual Surveillance

VS2008 - The Eighth IEEE International Workshop on Visual Surveillance

                       Marseille, France

VS2008 Website:


Research into intelligent visual surveillance technologies has become
one of the core problem areas of the computer vision research community.

The field enjoys well-funded national and international funding
and boasts a plethora of start-up companies offering a wide range of
intelligent CCTV products. Yet, despite the apparent success, the core
problems remain as complex and varied as any in computer vision. The
deployment of truly intelligent and robust surveillance systems face
a number of specific challenges including the segmentation and tracking
of individuals in crowded scenes; extracting body pose; characterization

of threats; reduction in false alarm rates; automatic learning of human-
oriented scene structure; and the semantic linkage between networks of
cameras and other sensors. To address these challenges, contributions
are particularly welcome in the following areas:  

- Background and environment modelling
- Object tracking and classification
- Behaviour analysis and recognition
- Image database annotation and searching
- Event and activity modelling
- Analysis of groups and crowds
- Multi-Camera and multi-sensor calibration
- Performance evaluation
- Image-based sensor networks
- PTZ networks
