1 March: Due to the logistical changes, VideoRec workshop will not be held as a special track of CRV conference this year. Papers submitted to the workshop follow the same process as that of other CRV submissions, and if accepted will appear in CRV proceedings along with other CRV papers. Poster and demo submissions are still welcomed and should be submitted directly to the
Program Chair.

The  International Workshop on Video Processing and Recognition is an annually organized workshop that is held in conjunction with the Canadian Conference on Computer & Robot Vision which has a focus on  analyzing video data. It addresses the problems which are commonly known as Video Analysis and Content Extraction, Video Analytics, Intelligent Video, Automated Video, Perceptual Vision etc. 

Submission and reviewing procedure: two-tier archival system    

The organization of the workshop follows that of its predecessors: FPiV'04 , FPiV'05 and VP4S-06, VideoRec'07, with two objectives in mind:
    i) distinguishing the papers that contribute significantly to the advances in the area, 
    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 Proceedings. A CD version of the Proceedings will be distributed at the CRV 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.   VideoRec workshop 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 , where other Tier II accepted submissions will be presented. 

Best Student Paper Award. We solicit awards from the industry to honour the best student papers.


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/IS attendees.   Student participation is encouraged by significantly discounted registration fees.
