Call for Papers

Video Processing for Human Behavioral Analysis (VP-HBA) Track


Motivations and topics

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary
gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers,
software engineers, and application developers from around the
world. SAC 2020 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and will be held in Brno, Czech
Republic. The technical track on Video Processing for Human Behavioral
Analysis (VP-HBA) will be organized for the first time in SAC 2020.

Actions, but also personality behavior recognition is starting to be
explored in the computer vision research field. Tools for effectively
analyzing these sort of behaviors have a major impact into everyone's
life, with applications in health, security, human
computer/machine/robot interaction and entertainment. This track
intend to focus in all aspects of computer vision and pattern
recognition devoted to the automatic analysis of human behavior by
applying recent or new video processing techniques.


The scope of VP-HBA includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

**      Human behavior analysis from visual and multimodal information

**      Human action recognition

**      Information fusion for the analysis of human behavior

**      Crowds analysis in videos

**      Articulated body posture estimation

**      Interactions engagement modeling and detection

**      (Multi-Modal) Learning from Videos      

**      Object Detection and Tracking

**      Elderly person monitoring systems

**      Gesture and Gait Analysis

**      Expression and emotion Recognition

**      Affective Computing

**      Applications of behavior analysis methods, e.g., medicine, sports, well-being, security, environment

**      Multimodal non-verbal signals analysis

**      Spatio-temporal concept detection and recognition (trajectory analysis, etc.)


Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers of
research and applications for this track. The author(s) name(s) and
address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and
self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate
double-blind review.

Please, visit the website for more information about submission


SAC No-Show Policy 

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the
paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy
attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the
paper/poster to be included in the ACM digital library. No-show of
registered papers and posters will result in excluding them from the
ACM digital library.
