2nd Workshop on

Target Re-identification and
Multi-Target Multi-Camera Tracking

In conjunction with CVPR 2019
June 2019, Long Beach, California

The 1st MTMCT and ReID workshop was successfully held at CVPR 2017. In the past two years, the MTMCT and REID community has been growing fast. As such, we are organizing this workshop for a second time, aiming to gather the state-of-the-art technologies and brainstorm future directions. We are especially welcoming ideas and contributions that embrace the relationship and future of MTMCT and ReID, two deeply connected domains. This workshop will encourage lively discussions on shaping future research directions for both academia and the industry.

MTMCT and REID Challenge

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, the test data has not been available. The multi-target multi-camera tracking and person re-identification challenge is cancelled. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Call for papers

In target re-identification, we define a query as a bounding box of a targe-of-interest such as a pedestrian or a vehicle. We define a database as a collection of image bounding boxes of arbitrary pedestrians or vehicles. Target re-identification aims to find all the database images of the same target as the query. In multi-target multi-camera tracking, we use videos captured by multiple cameras. This task aims to place tight bounding boxes to all the targets (e.g. pedestrians). The bounding boxes are partitioned into trajectories, a set of boxes that bound a unique target, ordered by time. In this full-day workshop, we will have invited speakers, poster sessions, oral presentations, as well as a summary of the challenge. We encourage authors to explore the connections between the fields of ReID and MTMCT and some novel ideas. Examples of such questions are:


To submit a new paper to the workshop, you have to do so through the CMT website. The workshop paper submissions should be in the same format as the main conference. Please refer to the CVPR 2019 author guidelines for more details.
