CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
______________________

We are happy to announce that the 5th Visual Object Tracking Challenge
VOT2017 will be held in conjunction with ICCV2017.
We are also announcing the third VOT thermal imagery tracking
sub-challenge VOT-TIR2017. The results of the VOT2017 and VOT-TIR2017
challenges will be presented at the ICCV 2017 VOT workshop.

Novelties in the VOT2017 challenge:
1. An updated and refreshed dataset.
2. The winner will be determined on a SEQUESTERED dataset not released
to public.
3. New experiments for real-time tracking evaluation will be conducted.
4. New paper co-authorship rules aiming toward open source tracking community.
5. The legacy VOT2013 integration will not be supported any more --
Trax integration required!

Participate by:
1. Sending the results of your tracker
2. Sending a full-length paper

We are soliciting (not necessarily original) trackers to participate
in a competition on a common dataset and evaluation methodology
provided by the committee. Contributors of the trackers outperforming
the baseline will be invited to be co-author of the results paper.

The VOT committee solicits full-length papers describing:
* Original or improved trackers as well as papers giving new insights
into existing trackers or class of trackers.
* Novel ways of using and extending the VOT framework for tracker
performance analysis.

For new constraints on VOT2017 Winner, the joint paper coauthorship
and transition to new integration protocol, please visit the VOT2017
homepage. The page will be updated in the following days.
