ISPRS WG II/5 and WG II/10 International Workshop

“Photogrammetric and computer vision techniques for

video Surveillance, Biometrics and Biomedicine” – PSBB21

April 26-28, 2021, Moscow, Russia

Photogrammetric and computer vision methods for surveillance, biometrics, biomedical imaging and diagnostics attract growing attention in recent years. Nowadays such interdisciplinary collaboration is an essential point for providing new developments and tools in this area.

The 4th International Workshop “Photogrammetric and computer vision techniques for video surveillance, biometrics and biomedicine” is intended to offer presentations and discussions of novel achievements in photogrammetric and computer vision researches for analysis of human body/features/behavior/environment both in security/surveillance applications and in biomedical tasks. This workshop is the forth in a row after the successful editions in 2015, 2017 and 2019. This year PSBB21 is organized by ISPRS (WG II/5 and WG II/10), State Research Institute of Aviation System (GosNIIAS, Russia), Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU, Russia) and the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT, Russia).

We invite researchers to submit the original contributions, as well as demonstrations of successful applications in accordance with but not limited to the following technical areas:

  • motion and change detection from monocular or stereo images sequences
  • motion analysis, object detection and tracking for video surveillance, biometrics and biomedicine
  • human detection and person (re-)identification in video sequences
  • human body 3D modelling, measurement and shape analysis
  • human motion 3D capturing and analysis
  • human action detection and recognition: gesture recognition, crowd analysis, behavior estimation
  • face detection, recognition and 3D modeling
  • medical imaging, visualization and systems
  • vision-based computer-aided diagnostics
  • virtual and augmented reality
  • image analysis and photogrammetric applications for biometry and biomedicine
  • mathematical morphology, shape analysis, 2D and 3D shape matching
  • deep learning for object detection and recognition in video surveillance, biometrics and biomedicine

One-day Joint Session with TVCS’21:

This time we include a one-day special session on computer vision methods for control systems applications in PSBB’21 Program. The session is organized in cooperation with Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IKI RAS) as a joint session with Russian scientific conference “Technical Vision in Control Systems-2021” (TVCS’21). Joint session will be held on April, 27. Joint session working languages are Russian and English.

Demo Session:

Researchers from universities, academic institution and industry are invited to present live demonstrations of photogrammetric and machine vision applications to the workshop participants. Demo presentations are not limited to papers accepted to PSBB21. Any demonstration showcasing the effectiveness of computer vision methods are welcome. Industrial demonstrations focused on novel research outcomes are invited.

Demonstrations will be held in parallel with the poster sessions on April, 26 and 28.

Important dates:

  • Abstract due date: December 15, 2020
  • Authors notification: January 15, 2021
  • Rebuttal period: January, 31, 2021
  • Camera ready paper due date: March 15, 2021

The accepted articles will be published in the ISPRS Archives of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences (http://www.isprs.org/publications/archives.aspx).

PSBB21 Workshop has recieved a confirmation from MDPI Journal of Imaging (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/jimaging) to be a media partner of the Workshop. The best papers of PSBB21 will be recommended for publishing in Special issue of MDPI Journal of Imaging preparing an extended version of the paper. The topic of the Special issue is “Imaging of humans: methods and applications”.
