29th FRUCT Conference: The 1st International Workshop on the Models and Methods for Driver Monitoring


The 1st International Workshop on the Models and Methods for Driver Monitoring will be held on the main days of the 29th FRUCT conference on May 12-13, 2021. Download CFP in PDF.

Despite COVID-19, we keep on collecting submissions and plan to hold the workshop as planned on May 12-13, 2021. The workshop is organized as a virtual event. We welcome you to Submit papers.



We are pleased to invite the community to submit to the 1st International Workshop on the Models and Methods for Driver Monitoring (MMDM 2021). The driver monitoring is an emerging research field positioned at the intersection of the machine learning, data science, human behavior analysis, and intelligent transportation system domains.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together academics and industry to investigate and advance the development of safety related driver monitoring methods by using cutting-edge tools and processes. The event will consist of presentations from academics, as well as posters and demos.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

- Driver distraction detection

- Driver attention evaluation

- Driver behavior analysis

- Driver fatigue detection

- Visual methods of driver monitoring

- Applications of physiological sensors for driver monitoring

- Driving style analysis

- Advanced driver assistance systems

- Detection of dangerous driving states

- Counter-action to dangerous driving states

- Equipment and computer programs used to increase driving safety

- Studies about impact of monitoring and regulations on road safety and traffic
