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.

Workshop topics:

  • 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
