About the book

The ever-increasing demand for robust human behavior analysis and understanding approaches in the last decades has led to the development of a variety of notions, methodologies, and approaches by industrial and academic parties engaged in machine learning and computer vision. The pertinent applications usually lie in the areas of human-robot and human-computer interaction. The components required for constructing a practical utility of this type may relate to a plenty of subjects, including human or object recognition and tracking, multimodal emotion induction or recognition, human activity or gesture detection and tracking and multimodal human behaviour analysis, which implies that a combination of multiple resources of information resulted from the detection and tracking of entities and their movements should be considered. The wide range of the topics involved in performing such a task necessitates resorting to the contributions brought by numerous domains, each of which constitutes an element of the whole interdisciplinary package. This book summarizes a choice selection of the most recent items amongst the aforementioned techniques and applications, which is aimed at introducing and motivating the associated technologies bringing, at least potential, advancements to the development of strategies targeting any sort of analysis of human behaviors based on visual information.


The area of interest and scope of the project can be described with (but are not limited to) the following keywords:

Human-Robot Interaction; Human-Computer Interaction; Multi-Modal Expression Recognition; Human Recognition; Object Recognition; Object Tracking; Human Activity Recognition; Head Pose Estimation; Gesture Recognition; Emotion Induction; Person Identification; Human Pose Recovery; Image Analysis (computer science); Audio-Visual Processing; Micro Emotion Recognition; Gender Recognition; Robotics

Authors are not limited in terms of topic, but encouraged to present a chapter proposal that best suits their current research efforts. Later, when all chapter proposals are collected, the editor will provide a more specific direction of the book.

Open Access Article Processing Charge

The Article Processing Charge (APC) is 890 EUR per chapter.
This is not a submission fee. Authors or their institutions/funding bodies will need to pay the APC only if the full chapter is accepted for publication. The APC covers:

  • Personal contact and support during the publishing process
  • Online manuscript tracking system to facilitate your work
  • English language copyediting - correction of grammatical, spelling, and other common errors
  • Indexing and listing across all major repositories
  • Long-term archiving
  • Discoverability - electronic citation and linking via DOI
  • XML Typesetting and pagination - web (PDF, HTML) and print files preparation
  • Permanent and unrestricted online access to your work
  • Dissemination and Promotion

The price does not include Value-Added Tax (VAT). Residents of European Union countries need to add VAT based on their specific country rate. Institutions and companies, outside of Croatia, registered as VAT taxable entities in their own EU member state, will not pay VAT by providing IN TECH with their VAT registration number. This is made possible by the EU reverse charge method.

Institutions and foundations with Open Access funding

Many institutions and foundations have their own Open Access funds that can be used by authors to cover publication fees. For an overview of available funding per country, see the complete list here.
