The First International Workshop on Video Processing and Recognition (VideoRec'07) is the fourth in a sequence of workshops organized in the area of  video processing: FPiV'04 , FPiV'05 and VP4S-06.

As its predecessors, the VideoRec'07 workshop is  dedicated to the problems of processing and recognizing video data,  in particular such as coming from TV, surveillance cameras or web/PDA cameras.

Submission and reviewing procedure: two-tier archival system    

Logistically, VideoRec'07 follows the organization and standards set by the last year's Workshop on Video Processing for Security (VP4S-06), which  aims at both:
    i) distinguishing the papers that contribute significantly to the advances in the area, and 
    ii) providing the forum for discussing and presenting the results for students, researchers and industries. 

To achieve both of these goals, the workshop uses a two-tier submission procedure.

Tier I submissions: submission and reviewing process

For the Tier I, the original full-size (not more than 8 pages) papers written  analyzing video context for recognition and understanding   applications are welcomed for submission.  Each Tier I submission will be reviewed by three Program Committee members. Reviewing is double blind (author don't know the reviewers, reviewers don't know the authors). The goal is to have as vigorous and fair reviewing of all papers as possible. 

Tier I accepted papers will be presented at the oral session and published by IEEE as part of the CRV'07 Proceedings. A CD version of the Proceedings will be distributed at the CRV'07 conference (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).

For the Tier II, the workshop invites submissions that are not or may not be accepted for IEEE publishing. This includes late full papers, posters, demos, student projects reports, industrial projects presentations submissions etc. There are no restrictions on the size of the Tier II submissions. 

Tier II accepted submissions will be presented at the poster session and will be published at the conference web-site archived by the CIPPRS.

Invited topics include but are not limited to:

- all aspects of surveillance and monitoring
- faces in video: tracking, detecting, memorizing and recognizing faces in video
- people in video: tracking and backtracking people in video, pedestrians
- objects in video: searching and tracking, vehicles
- scene and activity in video: detection and annotation
- video-based alarm systems and video for crime prevention
- making video more intelligent
- multiple-person and gang tracking
- multi-camera people tracking
- video for biometrics, soft- and hard- biometrics from video
- face biometrics, modeling, and  models
- facial expression recognition and classification, and representation
- combining video data with other sensor data: range, photo, fingerprints
- video over internet, issues related to privacy of video 
- 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
- video event detection and recognition
- video database mining
- rigid and non-rigid 3D motion estimation from video

Workshop proceedings. The Tier I selected papers will be published by IEEE as part of the CRV'07 Proceedings electronically (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). - See Tier I submissions procedure.

The Tier II accepted submissions will be published online at the CIPPRS-sponsored workshop web-site. - See Tier II submissions procedure.

Workshop Layout.   Following the layout of its predecessors, the VideoRec07 workshop will be held as a Special Session of the CRV'06 conference and will consist of an oral section, where the papers accepted for IEEE publication will be presented, and an poster/demo session, which will be held concurrently with the poster session of joint conferences (AI'07, GI'07, CRV'07), where other Tier II accepted submissions will be presented. 

Best Student Paper Award. In collaboration with Point Grey Research Inc. an award will be given to the best student paper of the workshop.


Who can attend: 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. Conversely, the  Workshop is open to all AI/GI/CRV'2007 attendees.   Student participation is encouraged by significantly discounted registration fees. 

About venue:  Montreal offers the visitors a variety of affordable and interesting places to visit.
