Understanding and interpreting object behaviours based on video analysis has
witnessed tremendous progress in the last twenty years. However, the
performance of finished systems still needs to be significantly improved,
and many challenges remain to be solved. One of these challenges is that
there is a gap between the primitive information directly extracted from
images and semantic representations. To bridge this gap, a number of
approaches based on features (e.g. SIFT, HoG and SURF) have been reported to
address the coherence between the extracted features and their semantic
interpretations. Unfortunately, due to feature redundancy and complexity,
these primitive features do not always lead to consistent or semantically
meaningful representations.

In recent years, sparse signal representation has proven to be an effective
tool for representing and compressing images. It has been demonstrated that
optimal decomposition of the signals using appropriately designed bases
(e.g. wavelets, Fourier coefficients or spatio-temporal words) can lead to
less ambiguity/uncertainty and computational complexity in image
interpretation and representation. In spite of its success, sparsity
analysis still has limitations in terms of computational efficiency and
interpretation accuracy. As a result, continuous efforts are currently being
made towards adaptive sparsity transformations of morphological data such as
extracted events in video surveillance.

The primary purpose of this special issue is to organise a collection of
recently developed analysis techniques based on sparse representations for
understanding/interpreting video analysis of object behaviours. This
includes object detection and tracking, segmentation, spatial and temporal
features extraction, human body modelling and synthesis, event recognition,
behaviour learning and applications. This special issue is intended to be an
international forum for researchers to report the recent developments in
this field in an original research paper style.


The topics include, but are not limited to:

l Sparse representation for event search and retrieval

l Sparse learning in motion trajectory analysis

l Object detection and tracking using sparse inference

l Sparse representation for crowd behaviour analysis

l Occlusion and segmentation errors handling

l Sparse representation for 2D/3D articulated human body modelling

l Sparsity analysis for modelling and learning object behaviours

l Sparse interpretations of object behaviours
