Call for Papers
9th Visual observation and analysis of Vertebrate And Insect Behavior workshop (VAIB24)

A 1 day workshop to be held December 1 or 5, 2024 at the 2024 International Conference on Pattern Recognition
Kolkata, India :

There has been an enormous amount of research on analysis of video
data of humans, but relatively little on visual analysis of other
organisms. The goal of this 8th VAIB workshop is to stimulate and
bring together the current research in this area, and provide a forum
for researchers to share expertise. As we want to make this more of a
discussion workshop, we encourage work-in-progress presentations.
Reviewing will be lightweight and only 4 page extended abstracts will
be circulated to attendees. The abstracts will not be included in the
official ICPR proceedings, but will be accessible from the VAIB24 web
page (as with previous VAIB workshops).  Authors will retain the
copyright for their abstracts.

The issues that the research will address include (but not limited to):

         detection of living organisms
         organism tracking and movement analysis
         dynamic shape analysis
         classification of different organisms (eg. by subspecies)
         assessment of organism behavior or behavior changes
         size and shape assessment
         health monitoring
         specialized monitoring techniques

These problems can be applied to a variety of species at different
sizes, such as fruit and house flies, crickets, cockroaches and other
insects, mice and rats, commercial farm animals such as poultry, cows
and horses, and wildlife monitoring, etc. One aspect that they all
have in common is video data.
