Human Activity Detection in Multi-Camera, Continuous, Long-Duration Video (HADCV'22) Workshop


ActEV SDL UF Challenge

In this WACV HADCV’22 workshop we will present the research findings of the ActEV Self-Reported Leaderboard (SRL) Challenge .
The ActEV SRL will provide a new test dataset to participants to run developed algorithms on their own computer systems and submit results to a scoring server. By removing the requirement for software submissions to a test-server, we hope to lower the bar for challenge participation relative to the prior Sequestered Data Leaderboard.



Challenge Schedule

  • NIST releases ActEV SRL test dataset: September 10, 2021
  • ActEV SRL Challenge Opens: September 10, 2021
  • Deadline for ActEV SRL results submission: December 01, 2021
  • Invite the top three teams on the ActEV SRL Challenge for the WACV HADCV'22 workshop: December 18, 2021

Summary
The “4th International Workshop on Human Activity Detection in multi-camera, Continuous, long-duration Video (HADCV'22)” will focus on human activity detection in multi-camera video streams. The ability to detect human activities is an important task in computer vision due to its potentially wide range of applications such as public safety and security, crime prevention, traffic monitoring and control, eldercare/childcare, human-computer interaction, human-robot interaction, hospital activity monitoring, and many more. The ActEV (Activities in Extended Video) series of challenges started in 2018 to foster development of robust, multi-camera, automatic activity detection algorithms for forensic and real-time alerting applications. We successfully organized the 1st WACV HADCV'19 workshop and presented the results of the ActEV 2018 challenges. In the 2nd WACV HADCV’20, we presented the results of ActEV Known Facility (KF) Sequestered Data Leaderboard (SDL) challenge on the larger and more challenging Multiview Extended Video with Activities (MEVA) KF dataset with more activities than ActEV 2018. In the 3rd WACV HADCV’21 workshop, we presented the research findings of the ActEV Unknown Facility (UF) SDL challenge . In this WACV HADCV’22 workshop we will present the research findings of ActEV Self-Reported Leaderboard (SRL) Challenge. For ActEV SRL, a portion of the MEVA Known Facility sequestered test set will made available for the first time (Sep 10th) and run as a self-reported evaluation, lowering the entry bar for new participants. Training resources for ActEV SRL have been increased with newly released annotations for 160 hours of video totaling 59K activity instances from the MEVA Known Facility dataset , and the Person In Places (PIP) dataset, now totaling 410K annotated instances from a multitude of diverse locations. We will have three invited keynote talks from experts in the field. We will also have three talks from the best performers on the two challenges. Submitted papers will be selected after a double-blind review on topics related to activity detection and will be published in IEEE proceeding of WACV workshop. The workshop will provide a platform for researchers to share research experiences and foster collaboration. The ActEV SRL challenge will start September 10, 2021.

Jan 04, 2022: HADCV'22 Workshop Date

About the 4th International HADCV Workshop 2022:
This workshop aims to bring all the stakeholders (activity detection, object detection and tracking, pose estimation, machine learning, etc.) together to help advance the state-of-the-art in human activity detection technology in multi-camera video streaming environments. The primary focus will be on activity detection algorithms, performance evaluation and characterization, and large dataset collections for activity detection. Research findings of the ActEV Self-Reported Leaderboard (SRL) Challenge will be presented. In addition, we are inviting the research community to submit research papers which will be published in the IEEE Digital Library on the following topics:

  • Activity detection in untrimmed video
  • Activity detection, recognition, classification and prediction
  • Surprise/Ad-hoc activity detection
  • Multi-camera object detection and tracking in crowded scenes
  • Human activity and behavior analysis in indoor/outdoor environments for public safety, security, traffic monitoring and control, etc.
  • Human activity monitoring in public spaces
  • Person re-identification
  • Human pose estimation and gesture recognition
  • Human activity understanding
  • Spatio-temporal activity/object localization
  • Human behavior and activity analysis
  • Anomaly detection in indoor/outdoor activities
  • Human-human and Human-object interaction
  • Indexing and retrieval of human activity in video datasets
  • Multi-camera analysis
  • Evaluation criteria and metrics for Activity detection
  • Benchmarking datasets and annotations
  • Machine learning/deep learning methods for activity detection
  • Big video datasets
  • Ontology of human Activity
  • Applications of activity detection and understanding in public safety and security, traffic monitoring and control, crime prevention, etc.

  • As organizers of the workshop we are looking forward to contributions in these and related areas.
