The 2nd Workshop on Video Understanding and its Applications

In conjunction with BMVC 2024.

The 2nd Workshop on Video Understanding and its Applications (VUA 2024)

Video understanding is a popular field in computer vision and AI where we aim to learn/assess the world around us from video footage and can benefit many real-world applications, such as training and education, patient monitoring, sports assessment, and security systems. By automating these applications through video analysing, not only we can save money and time for their users, but also, we can decrease human errors. Despite the recent advances in the other areas of computer vision, e.g. image analysis, video understanding is still an unsolved problem and is considered a very challenging task.

The proposed workshop on video understanding aims to address the challenges in this field by making the following contributions:

  • Bringing together leading experts in the field of video understanding to help propel the field forward. This includes junior and senior researchers, with equal representation and contribution from academia and industry
  • The workshop also aims to stimulate and accelerate research progress in the field of video understanding to match the requirements of real-world applications by identifying the challenges and ways to address them.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Application of Video Understanding to healthcare and media production
  • View-invariant and 3D video understanding (e.g. 3D action recognition)
  • Transformer for video understanding
  • Generating synthetic data for video understating tasks
  • Self-supervised learning for video understanding
  • Multi-modal video understanding
  • Active speaker detection
  • Action/event detection
  • Video captioning
  • Video editing and summarisation
  • Videography/virtual cinematography
  • Video search and retrieval
