Aim of SBMI2015

In scene analysis, the availability of an initial background model that describes the scene without foreground objects is the prerequisite, or at least can be of help, for many applications, including:
The aim of SBMI2015 ( is to bring together researchers interested in scene background modeling and initialization (also known as bootstrapping, background estimation, background reconstruction, initial background extraction, or background generation) in different application areas, in order to:

Relevant topics concerning scene background modeling and initialization include but are not limited to:

Prospective authors may conduct and report results of quantitative evaluation of their methods on the Scene Background Initialization (SBI) dataset.
