Eventos : CFP: Interfaces for Computer Vision Ground Truth Creation 

VIGTA 2012 - First International Workshop on Visual Interfaces for
Ground Truth Collection in Computer Vision Applications

Workshop at AVI2012 - Capri, Italy, May 21-25, 2012
The importance of having image/video database containing high quality
ground truth annotations generated by humans for a variety of computer
vision applications is recognized by the whole machine vision
community. Indeed, one of the most significant efforts during the
evaluation process is represented by the development of accurate truth
and comparing this truth to the decision of image and video processing
applications. For example, datasets with ground truth labels are
necessary for supervised learning of object categories. However, the
cost of providing labelled data, which implies asking a human to
examine images and provide labels, becomes impractical as training
sets grow. The computer vision community has mainly directed its
attention to develop methods for collecting large scale datasets by
exploiting the collaborative effort of a large population of
annotators. Although there exist functional, task-oriented
requirements for tools supporting ground truth labeling,
the research still lacks in following human computer interaction
paradigm to develop user-oriented tools. In fact, annotators, must be
at the centre of such tools since the ground truth needs to be
established by humans who, for example, on a video sequence of five
minutes captured at 30 fps, have to annotate manually
a total of 9000 frames. Therefore, tools for ground truth annotation
must be user-oriented, providing advanced visual interfaces able to
speed-up the process of ground truth creation by helping users,
through the integration of computer vision methods and multi-users
ground truth annotations, to finish the task in a reasonable amount of
time with less effort.

The workshop aims at bringing together practitioners and researchers
both in computer vision and in HCI and in multimedia research to share
ideas and experiences in designing and implementing visual interfaces
for ground truth data generation, thus promoting interdisciplinary
research between computer vision, HCI and multimedia research.
