1st International Workshop on Video Retrieval Methods and Their Limits (ViRaL19) at ICCV 2019

We are organizing a workshop at the ICCV 2019 conference (International Conference on Computer Vision) on video retrieval methods and their limits. We invite papers of up to 4 pages length (excluding references, but including figures), formatted according to the ICCV template (http://iccv2019.thecvf.com/files/iccv2019AuthorKit.zip). Submissions shall be single blind, i.e. do not need to be anonymized. […]

LSC 2019 @ ICMR 2019

The second Lifelog Search Challenge (LSC 2019) will take place at ICMR 2019 in Ottawa, Canada in June 2019. Just like in 2018, LSC 2019 will be a highly interactive and entertaining workshop modelled on the successful Video Browser Showdown annual competition at the MMM conference. LSC is a participation workshop, which means that all […]

8th VBS with Great Success

The 8th Video Browser Showdown (VBS) took place a week ago (on January 8th and 9th) at MMM2019 in Thessaloniki, and it was a great success. For the first time we used the V3C1 dataset (Part 1 of the Vimeo Creative Commons Collection), which consists of 7475 video files that amount for about 1000 hours […]

FWF Research Project SQUASH Approved

I am very happy that a new research project on Surgical Quality Assessment in Gynecologic Laparoscopy (SQUASH) – in collaboration with the Medical University of Vienna – has been approved by the FWF Austrian Science Fund. In this research project we will investigate if we can improve the efficiency and feasibility of technical skill assessment […]

Residual Motion Improves Deep Learning Performance for Surgical Actions in Gynecologic Laparoscopy

In a recent work, presented at the 31st IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS2018), we could show that the inclusion of Residual Motion improves classification performance of surgical actions in videos from gynecologic laparoscopy significantly (resulting in a boost of Recall and Precision of 5% and 9% with the GoogLeNet CNN architecture). This […]

diveXplore Interactive Video Retrieval System

We have created a video of the diveXplore system, which we used for the Video Browser Showdown in 2017 and 2018 (as well as for the Lifelog Search Challenge 2018 in slightly modified form) quite successfully (2nd place in all three competitions). The video shows the different features of the system when applied to the […]
