Call for papers
Advances in Computer Vision can provide many useful
solutions for Security and Biometrics industry, in particular in the area, which has
become of prime importance recently - the Processing of Video.
With this in mind, the First International Workshop on Video Processing for
Security (VP4S-06) is organized as a follow-up of past Workshops on Face Processing in
(held jointly with CVPR'04) and FPiV'05
(held jointly with CRV'05)
with its interest extended from face detection, tracking,
recognition, coding etc. to people, objects, scene and action
detection, tracking and recognition etc.
The focus of the VP4S-06 workshop remains dealing with video
data, in particular such as coming from TV, surveillance
cameras or web/PDA cameras, while the main theme of the workshop is shifted towards
Aims. The goal of the VP4S-06 workshop is two-fold:
- First, to provide a Computer Vision scientists a market-driven
inspiration and prospective to their work, and
- Second, to provide the Security and Biometrics industry with the references
to academic computer-vision work addressing the area.
For the first goal, the workshop invites scientists to discuss problems related to
Video Processing, as they are (or can be) applied to security and
biometrics applications, and, as a result, to produce a collection of
high-quality papers addressing these problems.
For the second goal, the workshop web-site will serve as a medium
with links to
computer vision research and demos dealing with security applications.
Workshop Layout. Following the layout of its predecessors, the
VP4S-06 workshop will consist of
a day of a single-track oral
presentations, posters and demos, as well as an invited talk,
which will be open to all attendees of the joint
Workshop proceedings. The papers accepted for the workshop will be published by IEEE as part of the
CRV'06 Proceedings, the hardcopy of which will be distributed at the CRV'05 conference.
The workshop proceedings will are also automatically archived into the IEEE Computer
Society's digital library and the IEEE's XPlore and IEL digital libraries and indexed through the INSPEC indexing service.
Reviewing Process. Reviewing will
be double blind. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two Program Committee
members and one or two additional reviewers. The goal is to have as vigorous and fair reviewing of all
papers as possible.
Paper submission procedure
Original full-size papers written in English analyzing video
in the context of a security or biometrics application are welcomed for submission.
The suggested topics are listed below:
- faces in video: tracking, detecting, memorizing and recognizing faces in video
- people in video: tracking and backtracking people in video
- searching for objects in video
- scene and activity detection and annotation
- video-based alarm systems and video for crime prevention
- video for surveillance
- video for biometrics, soft- and hard- biometrics from video
- making video more intelligent
- multiple-person and gang tracking
- multi-camera people tracking
- combining video data with other sensor data: range, photo, fingerprints
- video over internet, issues related to privacy of video
- face biometrics, modeling, and models
- facial expression recognition and classification, and representation
- performance evaluation for face in video problems
- video-based benchmarks and databases
- processing of video from stereo and panoramic cameras
- combining video and audio for person detection/recognition
- video-based interfaces and computer-human interaction for security
- analyzing multiplexed video, demultiplexing of video
- improving quality of video: anti-aliasing and super-resolution
Format & Size. Papers should be formatted using the
guidelines described at the CRV'06
website. Papers should be written in English, full size and complete,
eight double-column pages maximum.
Blind review requirement: Papers should not include any information that would indicate the author’s
identity (references to authors’ previous work should be left blank).
How to submit. Submission of papers is done by emailing
them as .pdf files to the Submission
Chair at the email address
given above. The subject of email must read "VP4S-06 submission". In the
accompanying letter, authors
1) the title of the paper,
2) keywords of the paper,
3) the names and affiliations of the authors
4) the name and email of the contact author
Every submitted paper will be assigned a submission
number, which will be emailed to the contact author.
Poster and demo submission
Layout: The papers which are not excepted
for publication can still be presented at the VP4S-06
as Posters or Demos. They will not be published in the
will have however the same exposure to the attendees of the joint conferences as
other papers and will be included in the workshop website.
How to submit:
Email the extended abstract as attachment to Program Chairs with the subject "VP4S-06 submission".
message body should contain the title of the poster/demo and the contact
information for the main author.
Registration and venue
Participation in the workshop without submitting a paper is welcomed. For a single registration fee, the workshop participants will also be able to attend the joint conferences. Student participation is encouraged by significantly discounted registration fees.
Quebec city, known as little France in
North America, offers the visitors a variety of affordable and
interesting places to visit.
