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
