We are happy to announce the 7th Visual Object Tracking Challenge! VOT2019 will be held in conjunction with ICCV2019. The results of all VOT2019 challenges will be presented at the ICCV 2019 VOT workshop.

Novelties of VOT2019:
* Two new challenges introduced (VOT-RGBT & VOT-RGBD)
* VOT-RGBT2019 challenge will evaluate trackers that use 4 channels (RGB + IR) in tracking
* VOT-RGBD2019 challenge will evaluate trackers that use 4 channels (RGB + depth) in tracking
* Updated VOT toolkit to support multi-channel inputs

Participate by:
1. Sending the results of your tracker
2. Sending a full-length paper
3. Sending your improved ICCV rejected 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 co-author 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.
