Visual observation and analysis of Vertebrate And Insect Behavior Workshop Overview

The VAIB workshops are a series of one day workshops held in conjunction with the biennial International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR).

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 series is to stimulate and bring together the current research in this area, and provide a forum for researchers to share expertise. As we wanted to have essentially discussion workshops, we encouraged work-in-progress presentations. Reviewing was lightweight and only abstracts were circulated to attendees and recorded on the web pages.

All instances of VAIB are here:

The issues that the research addresses 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.
