Human Activity Detection in multi-camera, Continuous, long-duration Video Call for Papers

HADCV'21: Call for Papers and Participation in 
ActEV SDL Unknown Facility (UF) challenge

WACV HADCV'21 Workshop Website:
ActEV SDL Unknown Facility (UF) challenge:

The 3rd International Workshop on Human Activity Detection in
multi-camera, Continuous, long-duration Video (HADCV'21) will
focus on human activity detection in multi-camera video streams. The
ability to detect human activities is an important task in computer
vision due to its potentially wide range of applications. This
workshop aims to bring all the stakeholders (activity detection,
object detection and tracking, pose estimation, machine learning,
etc.) together to help advance the state-of-the-art in human activity
detection technology in multi-camera video streaming environments. In
this workshop we will present the research findings of the ActEV SDL
Unknown Facility (UF) challenge [22]. The UF challenge will include
detection of activities which are known to the participant's system a
priori as well as activities that are presented to the system at test
time (surprise/ad_hoc activities) on a new sequestered dataset. In
addition, we are inviting the research community to submit unpublished
research papers which will be published in the IEEE Digital Library on
the following topics:

-Activity detection in untrimmed video
-Activity detection, recognition, classification and prediction
-Surprise/Ad-hoc activity detection
-Multi-camera object detection and tracking in crowded scenes
-Human activity and behavior analysis in indoor/outdoor environments for public safety, security, traffic monitoring and control, etc.
-Human activity monitoring in public spaces
-Person re-identification
-Human pose estimation and gesture recognition
-Human activity understanding
-Spatio-temporal activity/object localization
-Human behavior and activity analysis
-Anomaly detection in indoor/outdoor activities
-Human-human and Human-object interaction
-Multi-camera analysis
-Evaluation criteria and metrics for Activity detection
-Benchmarking datasets and annotations
-Machine learning/deep learning methods for activity detection
-Big video datasets

As organizers of the workshop we are looking forward to contributions
in these and related areas.
