CALL FOR ABSTRACTS


FIVER @ CVPR 2018

Fine-grained Instructional Video undERstanding


FIVER is a half-day workshop to be held at CVPR 2018

http://fiver.eecs.umich.edu/

Video understanding has advanced quite a long way in the past decade, moving from classifying easily segmented human activity on static backgrounds and tracking single objects smoothly moving without clutter to large-scale detection and segmentation of action amidst dense clutter and translation of video into textual description automatically, to name a few.  In this workshop, we will take a step beyond these individual video understanding problems and begin a conversation surrounding the nascent problem area of learning from instructional video.  

The goal of this workshop is to start a conversation around learning from instructional video with the ultimate plan to organize a future, longer-scale workshop with one or more challenge problems.  To that end, we invite submissions of abstracts along the following topics in the context of learning from instructional video and fine-grained video understanding:

Abstracts can be submitted at http://fiver.eecs.umich.edu/submit and should be 1-2 page pdfs in the standard CVPR format.  Abstracts are not papers and will not be a part of any proceedings; we hence welcome accepted CVPR 2018 papers.  Our goal is to get as many community members as possible into the discussion.  Selected abstracts will be invited to present a poster during the workshop.  A subset of selected abstracts will be invited to give a talk and/or participate as panelists in the discussion near the end of the workshop.

Abstracts Due April 15, 2018
