The 4th International Conference on Activity and Behavior Computing October 27th - 29th, 2022, London, United Kingdom (Hybrid)
Paper deadline: July 25th, 2022 (Extended)

Welcome to ABC2022!

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 ABC.

Call for Papers

We welcome 4 categories of papers: regular papers, position papers, survey papers, and challenge papers. The submitted papers are peer reviewed by expert researchers, and accepted based on the research quality.

Accepted and presented papers will be published as Book Chapters (indexed in ISI Proceedings, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS, Google Scholar) (details will be updated soon).

  • Regular papers: full technical contents which describe the accuracy and performance of ABC Systems, real deployment cases or application of new paradigms such as deep learning to ABC.
  • 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: we will provide a dataset and accept results for activity recognition and papers describing the methods and the results. Please see the Challenge Site for details.
  • Position papers: describe the challenges and future directions of ABC based on problems that arise when systems are deployed in real settings.


  • Regular papers: 8-20 pages in single column
  • Survey papers: 10-20 pages in single column
  • Challenge papers: 4-10 pages in single column
  • Position papers: 4-10 pages in single column
  • Please use the LaTeX template (button below for the LaTeX template).
  • Submit from Microsoft CMT service (button below) and select the ABC.
  • Note that the author information should be removed from the paper, for double blind reviews.
