Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Scope

Understanding actions from different points of view and taking the perspective of others is a fundamental ability humans often leverage for interaction. However for machines the task remains considerably challenging.   When projected onto different images planes, in fact, a 3D motion may change severely, increasing the complexity of successfully matching motion descriptors of the same actions observed from different viewpoints.   Nevertheless, this ability is a key to address motion understanding tasks in unconstrained,  real world situations. Differently from laboratory settings, commonly used for methods evaluation, the expected relative position between observer and actor can not be definite and more importantly is unfixed.   This special session aims at gathering contributions on the challenging task of view-invariant motion representation and understanding.

Scope

The development of a variety of new image capturing devices and soft sensors, coupled with the rapid advancements in machine learning and pattern recognition have unleashed new possibilities in the full range of visual computing fields. These advances have already started bringing about significant development to many areas of interest to the engineering community. The proliferation of data, combined with effective means to obtain, manage, process and analyze massive volumes of visual data, is driving innovation and appears to be one of the key disruptive enablers in engineering. The aim of this Special Session is to explore visual computing techniques (computer vision, image processing, computer graphics, visualization, AR/VR) for all types of engineering applications.
