                   SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                       3rd IEEE International Workshop on
               Performance Evaluation of Tracking and Surveillance

                                    PETS'2002

                           (in conjunction with ECCV'02)

                                    June 1 2002
                                Copenhagen Denmark

                      http://pets2002.visualsurveillance.org

                            (final IEEE approval pending)

    SCOPE:

    PETS2002 continues the theme of the highly successful PETS2000 and
    PETS2001 workshops held at IEEE FG'2000 and IEEE CVPR'01 respectively.

    The theme is performance evaluation of tracking and surveillance.

    The growth in the development of the field has not been met with
    complementary systematic performance evaluation of developed techniques.
    It is especially difficult to make comparisons between algorithms if they
    have been tested on different datasets under widely varying conditions.

    The PETS workshop series is unique in that all participants are testing
    algorithms on the same datasets.

    For PETS'2002, the application areas include:

    - static hand posture classification and
    - people tracking and counting

    The datasets will be made availabke to participants of the workshop session.
    The aims of the workshop are several-fold:

            * to bring together researchers interested in the area
              of visual suveillance
            * to apply different algorithms to the same dataset(s) to evaluate
              the differences between different models and algorithms
            * to discuss which criteria should be used for objective
              evaluation
            * to discuss how to document the performance (including accuracy)
              of visual surveillance algorithms
            * to discuss the development of a methodology for testing
              algorithms
            * to discuss the ongoing development of a testbed and guidelines
              for performing empirical comparative tests.
