CALL FOR PAPERS
         International Conference on Activity and Behavior Computing 
(ABC 2020)

                                Jun. 22nd - 25th, 2020, Kitakyushu, Japan
                                    In conjunction with ICIEV&IVPR2020

Human Activity Recognition has been researched in thousands of papers
so far, with mobile / environmental sensors in ubiquitous / pervasive
domains, and with cameras in vision domains. As well, Human Behavior
Analysis is also explored for long-term health care, rehabilitation,
emotion recognition, human interaction, and so on. However, many
research challenges remain for realistic settings, such as complex and
ambiguous activities / behavior, optimal sensor combinations, (deep)
machine learning, data collection, platform systems, and killer
applications.  In this conference, we comprehend such research domains
as ABC: Activity and Behavior Computing, and provide an open and a
confluent place for discussing various aspects and the future of the

We welcome 4 categories of papers: regular papers, position papers, 
survey papers,
and challenge papers. The submitted papers are peer reviewed by expert 
and accepted based on the research quality.
Accepted papers will be included in Springer Books (TBD, IEEE Xplore and 
indexed). Selected papers will be invited to submit to the Pattern 
Recognition Letters
journal (5-Year Impact Factor: 2.350) and to International Journal on 
Computer Vision
and Signal Processing.

such as deep
   learning to ABC.
- Position papers: describe the challenges and future directions of ABC 
based on
   problems that arise when systems are deployed in real settings.
- Survey papers: new perspective or new challenges in ABC based on 
literature survey.
   We do not welcome just compilations of existing research, but do if 
it provides new
   research horizons.
- Challenge papers: TBA, we will provide a dataset and accept results 
for activity recognition
    and papers describing the methods and the results.
