Call for Papers on "Behaviours in Video", Neurocomputing




Video cameras have been commonly used in our daily life. With a significant
increment of the number of CCD cameras used for various purposes, there is a
demanding call for advanced video analysis techniques that can be used to
systematically interpret and understand the semantics of video contents,
which have been recorded in security surveillance, intelligent
transportation, health care, video retrieving and summarization.
Understanding and interpreting human behaviours based on video analysis have
observed competitive challenges due to non-rigid human motion, self and
mutual occlusions, and changes of lighting conditions. To solve these
problems, advanced image and signal processing technologies such as neural
network, fuzzy logic, probabilistic estimation theory and statistical
learning have been overwhelmingly investigated.

The primary purpose of this special issue is to organise a collection of
recently developed video analysis techniques for understanding/interpreting
human behaviours, starting from human detection and tracking, segmentation,
spatial and temporal features extraction, human body modelling and
synthesis, event detection and behaviour learning, including the
applications of these techniques. The special issue is intended to become an
international forum for researches to report the recent developments in this
field in an original research paper style. The topics include, but are not
limited to:

.         Human object detection and segmentation 

.         Tracking of human objects 

.         Detection and tracking using sensor networks 

.         Crowd estimation and crowd behaviour analysis 

.         Occlusions and segmentation errors handling 

.         2D/3D articulated human body modelling 

.         Modelling and learning of human behaviours 

.         Knowledge interpretations of human behaviours

.         Applications and user studies

.         Other behaviours in videos




Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author
Guidelines, which are located at
structions. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their
complete manuscript (6-15 pages in the Neurocomputing publishing format)
through the journal manuscript tracking system at the web site:
http://ees.elsevier.com/neucom/, indicating that their contribution is for
the special issue "Behaviours in Video". Submitted manuscripts will be
reviewed according to the peer review policy of Neurocomputing.
