A satellite event of the 14th Internation Conference of Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns (CAIP2011)


Scope of the Workshop


Scene Understanding has become a popular topic in Computer Science which combines abilities such as perception, analysis and interpretation of both indoor and outdoor scenes. Hence, it involves joining efforts and sharing knowledge from different research areas such as Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, Machine Intelligence, Software Engineering and Cognitive Sciences. Scene Understanding underlies many abilities such as visual search, visual exploration and attention guidance, 3D object classification or human behaviour description and recognition. However, many other abilities such as spatio-temporal processing or multi-sensor fusion can also rely on this topic.

This workshop is meant to bring together researchers which address the problem of Scene Understanding from the perspective of the different involved research communities. The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:

Scene exploration

   Local and Global Saliency
   Perceptual search and attention guidance in scenes
   Multimodal perception
   Spatio-temporal reasoning
   Perception and motion: Active spatial exploration

Place recognition

   From features to objects
      Affine covariant feature detection
      Object recognition from local features (Bags-of-features)
      Structure for object recognition
      Sharing features for multiclass and/or multiview object recognition
      3D object recognition
   From objects to scenes
      Conceptualization and scene classification
      Grammars for objects and scenes
      Objects in context: scenes and objects
   Scene recognition without objects
      Global scene representations for recognition
      Visual Localization

Human behaviour understanding

   Human actions representation and recognition
   Learning-based approaches for body movement description
   Face Recognition

Application areas

   Mobile robot navigation: mapping and visual SLAM
   Smart environments: computational perception of human activities
   Wearable sensors for visually impaired people
   Events and activities detection and understanding in video data
