BEST2016 Workshop (In conjunction with ACCV2016, Taibei ROC)


BEST2016 workshop will be held in the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC) on November 24, 2016, in conjunction with ACCV2016. This workshop aims at bringing together cutting-edge researches in the field of multi-task aware, multi-modal oriented and multi-camera based intelligent surveillance algorithms and applications. Main topics are, but are not limited to:

  • Surveillance benchmark/datasets and performance evaluation
  • Surveillance object detection, recognition and location;
  • Surveillance object indexing and retrieval;
  • Multiple object/subject motion tracking;
  • Object (face, pedestrian) identification and re-identification;
  • Multi-modal re-identification
  • Action/activity/event/behavior recognition;
  • Large spatio-temporal event recognition;
  • Object and human re-identification under distributed camera system;
  • Multi-task recognition;
  • System and Performance Evaluation;
  • Other Related Topics.
