Large-scale Video Object Segmentation

Workshop in conjunction with ECCV 2024

September 30th, PM, 2024

MiCo Milano, Italy

Introduction

The 6th LSVOS challenge will be held in conjunction with ECCV 2024 in MiCo Milano. In this edition of the workshop andchallenge, we replace the classic YouTube-VOS benchmark with MOSE and LVOS to study the VOS under more challenging complex environments. MOSE focuses on complex scenes, including the disappearance-reappearance of objects, inconspicuous small objects, heavy occlusions, crowded environments, etc. LVOS focuses on long-term videos, with complex object motion and long-term reappearance. Besides, we also replace the origin YouTube-RVOS benchmark with MeViS. MeViS focuses on referring the target object in a video through its motion descriptions instead of static attributes, which breaks the basic design principles behind existing RVOS methods and boosts the rethinking of motion modeling. In addition, we will hold a series of talks by the leading experts in video understating.
