Person re-identification is the task of recognizing a person body silhouette, captured by one or more cameras, over a range of candidate targets. The main issues are due to the fact that the same person is usually acquired at different times and by different disjoint cameras.
In this tutorial the participants will be guided firstly to understand the person re-identification problem, the modalities and scenarios and then to learn principled methods to address the re-identification. Finally a case of study of a real application for re-identification is shown and discussed. The tutorial is also accompanied by some MATLAB-based tools.
