The 7th Advanced Video and Signal Based Surveillance (AVSS) IEEE Conference is sponsoring the Multiple Camera Person Tracking Challenge Evaluation in conjunction with the Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB), Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The goal of the effort is to facilitate research via a common evaluation task that focuses on one aspect of person tracking technologies: the ability to track a specified person within a video sensor field using a small set of in situ exemplar video images to specify the person. We refer to these technologies as Single Person Tracking (SPT) technologies. The results of the evaluation will be discussed at a special session at the AVSS conference.
