Visual observation and analysis of animal and insect behavior
A one day workshop to be held in conjunction with the
20th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2010)
August 22, 2010
and sponsored by the EU ChiRoPing project: Developing versatile and robust perception using sonar systems that integrate active sensing, morphology and behaviour.
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 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 abstracts will be circulated to
The issues that the research will address include:
- 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
These problems can be applied to a variety of species at different sizes,
such as fruit and house flies, crickets, cockroaches and other insects,
farmed and wild fish, 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.
Submit a 4 page extended abstract in English, in PDF, by email to email@example.com
by April 1, 2010.
The extended abstracts (PDF) should be anonymous. Include in your email the name(s) of the author(s),
institutional affiliation, complete mailing address, international phone and fax numbers.
The papers presented at the workshop will be published in the workshop notes,
for distribution to the participants and linked to this page after the workshop.
