Invited Speakers:






  Overview: There has been a large body of work developed in the last 10 years on the human pose estimation and tracking from video. Many of these methods are based on well founded statistical models and machine learning techniques. Progress however has been limited because of the lack of common datasets and error metrics for quantitative comparison. The goal of this workshop is to (1) establish the current state of the art in the human pose estimation and tracking from single and multiple camera views, (2) discuss future directions in the field, and (3) introduce a benchmark database and error metrics for comparing current and future methods. To this end a new (HumanEva) database for evaluation will be introduced.  
Scope: Workshop program will consist of papers, posters, invited talks and a discussion panel. The list of possible topics includes (but is not limited to) the following:
  • Tracking and pose estimation (in 2D and 3D);
  • Articulated body models;
  • Priors for human motion and dynamics;
  • Appearance models;
  • Discriminative and generative approaches for articulated pose recovery;
  • Quantitative metrics for evaluation of pose estimation and tracking.
