Video-based analysis of sport events is an important tool in analysis of individual players and sport teams, but usually requires many hours of manual work. Computer vision based methods can provide help in automating many of those tasks, for example tracking, annotation, indexing and automatic generation of semantic descriptions.
On the other hand, sport provides plenty of opportunities for engineers to test
the new and promising general purpose motion analysis methods on real data in the sport environments, which have some distinctive advantages over other testbeds: well documented rules, constraints and requirements.
We solicit papers for a special issue of Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU) relating to Computer Vision Based
Analysis in Sport Environments. Extended versions of the best papers from the
CVBASE'06 workshop, alongside other high quality submissions will be considered.
- tracking of athletes/players
- ball tracking
- motion data processing and analysis
- individual activity detection, recognition and analysis
- team (multi-agent) activity detection, recognition and analysis
- Deadline for submission: 30th September 2006
- Review Decision expected: 1st February 2007
Review decisions have been sent out. If you did not receive one, please contact guest editors!
- Final paper submission: 1st July 2007
The CVIU submission system has been set up for the special issue. It is just like submitting to CVIU normally, but one has to select "Special Issue: Analysis in Sport Environ" when asked to select Article Type. The webpage is:
