A one day workshop to be held in conjunction with the
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 attendees.
Previous versions of VAIB are here: 2008 (Tampa), 2010 (Istanbul), 2012 (Tsukuba), 2014 (Stockholm), 2016 (Cancun),
Note: full papers based on the VAIB presentations can be submitted to "Computer Vision for Animal Biometrics", a Special Issue of the IET Computer Vision Journal.
The issues that the research will address include:
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.
Researchers interested in the topics of this workshop might also be interested in submitting a paper to the IET Computer Vision special issue on Computer Vision for Animal Biometrics, with a submission deadline of Jan 31, 2017.
Submit a 4 page extended abstract in English, in PDF, by email to email@example.com by August 15, 2016. 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.
