The World Health Organization (WHO) has formally declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic on 12th March 2020. According to WHO, pandemic means a “sudden increase in the number of cases all over the world, usually affecting a large number of people”. The Government of Malaysia has imposed a movement control order for 14 days starting 18th March 2020 throughout the whole country. All social gatherings thereafter including international meetings, conferences, sporting events, social and religious assemblies are strictly banned.
The safety and well-being of ICBAPS2020 participants is our priority. Therefore, due to growing concerns about COVID-19, we regretfully announce that the ICBAPS2020 will cancel its physical conference this year, instead shifting to a fully VIRTUAL CONFERENCE. This unfortunate event does give us the opportunity to innovate on how to host an effective virtual conference. Therefore, organizing committees are now working very hard to create a virtual conference that will be valuable and engaging for both presenters and participants.
The virtual conference is scheduled to be held on 6-7 MAY 2020. Hence, all presenters for ICBAPS2020 are required to prepare a Virtual Video Presentation and must follow the guidelines for the preparation of your VIDEO PRESENTATION. The guidelines can be downloaded HERE.
The conference kit will be posted to participant (ONE conference kit for ONE paper registered and paid). Kindly a representative author of the paper to email us the postal address.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by COVID-19 around the world. It is our greatest hope that everyone remains healthy and safe. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our participants. We thank you for your support and understanding.
Due to the current situation of Covid-19 outbreak, the Malaysian government has imposed corona virus response measure. This is to quarantine (at least 14 days) individuals with the corona virus symptoms and those who are from the highly affected countries.
Due to this outbreak, our conference will not bear any related circumstances.
Thus, our preventive step is to give an options to all participants to prepare a video presentation that will be played during the conference day. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further clarification.
Thank you and stay safe and healthy.

Human activity Recognition (HAR) are explored in video-based computer vision domain and sensor-based ubiquitous research areas. Vision-based human action or activity recognition approaches are based on RGB video sequences, or depth maps, or from skeleton data – taken from normal video cameras or depth cameras. On the other hand, sensor-based activity recognition methods are basically based on the data collected from wearable sensors having accelerometer, gyroscope, or so on. There are numerous applications on HAR, however, the healthcare, elderly support, and related applications become very important arenas with huge social and financial impact. Due to the advent of various IoT sensors, it becomes more competitive as well as easier to explore different applications. The keynote will cover HAR approaches in both video-based and sensor-based domains, highlight healthcare perspectives and methods. The presentation will be based on the 3 books as follows:
- Md Atiqur Rahman Ahad, Anindya Das Antar, Masud Ahmed, “IoT Sensor-Based Activity Recognition – Human Activity Recognition”, Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2019.
- Md Atiqur Rahman Ahad, “Motion History Images for Action Recognition and Understanding”, Springer, 2013.
- Md Atiqur Rahman Ahad, “Computer Vision and Action Recognition: A Guide for Image Processing and Computer Vision Community for Action Understanding”, available in Springer, 2011.
