In the last years, we have seen tremendous progress in the capabilities of computer systems to classify video clips taken from the Internet or to analyze human actions in videos. There are lots of works in video recognition field focusing on specific video understanding tasks, such as action recognition, scene understanding, etc. There have been great achievements in such tasks, however, there has not been enough attention toward the holistic video understanding task as a problem to be tackled. Current systems are expert in some specific fields of the general video understanding problem. However, for real-world applications, such as, analyzing multiple concepts of a video for video search engines and media monitoring systems or providing an appropriate definition of the surrounding environment of a humanoid robot, a combination of current state-of-the-art methods should be used. Therefore, in this workshop, we intend to introduce holistic video understanding as a new challenge for the video understanding efforts. This challenge focuses on the recognition of scenes, objects, actions, attributes, and events in the real world user-generated videos. To be able to address such tasks, we also introduce our new dataset named Holistic Video Understanding (HVU dataset) that is organized hierarchically in a semantic taxonomy of holistic video understanding. Almost all of the real-world conditioned video datasets are targeting human action or sport recognition. So our new dataset can help the vision community and bring more attention to bring more interesting solutions for holistic video understanding. The workshop is tailored to bringing together ideas around multi-label and multi-task recognition of different semantic concepts in the real world videos. And the research efforts can be tried on our new dataset. HVU Dataset: https://github.com/holistic-video-understanding/Mini-HVU
