The processing, such as segmentation or recognition, of video objects is intimately related
to video surveillance. The practical implementation of object-based video surveillance
systems brings to the front issues related to accuracy of object processing, applicability
to different scenarios, and quality versus cost.
Video object processing is a well researched and developed area. However, as market
advancements focus on objects as the main item accurate and real-time techniques for
video object processing in complex surveillance scenes remain a challenge.
This Call for Papers is directed at researchers addressing video object processing in the
area of video surveillance with the objective of automatic, real time and accurate techniques in complex scenes. Examples of topic areas pertinent to this special issue are
- extraction of object features,
- detection of objects and features,
- segmentation of video objects,
- tracking video objects,
- analysis and interpretation of object motion,
- detection of events and activities,
- recognition of objects,
- detection and identification of face objects,
- video object based surveillance systems.
- Paper submission deadline: July 16, 2004
