HAREM 2005

Recent advances in computer vision and learning methodologies, together with the massive increase of computational power of standard computers enabled the deployment of a new generation of computer vision systems that go beyond more traditional approaches designed mainly for modelling the scene geometry from video data. Instead, the challenge is to develop systems able to detect and signal interesting events and understand, interpret and describe the observed video sequence.

One potential application of such methodologies lies in the context of video surveillance. Due to the massive number of cameras deployed in public spaces, it is no longer possible (or efficient) to have human operators continuously monitoring a multitude of video channels. Instead we need to provide computer vision systems able to process these video streams, use and learn contextual information, characterize the behaviour in a given situation and trigger an alert, only when an interesting "event" is detected. Needless to say, these systems must be designed to function and learn in a open-ended way and must have built-in self-regulatory, and reconfigurable capabilities.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers in cognitive computer vision and particular in the domains of surveillance and human activity recognition, with an emphasis on the following topics:
- Low-level feature extraction and selection
- Modelling of attention and control
- Human activity recognition
- Cognitive and self-adaptive architectures
- Video interpretation
