This concerns not only the case of ships, stadiums or buildings, all with restricted geometries, but also the evacuation of complete geographical regions due to natural disasters. Furthermore, also 'simple' crowd motion in 'relaxed' situations poses new questions with respect to higher comfort and efficiency since the number of involved persons at large events is as high as never before.

All this was in the scope of the conference held in Vienna, September 28a€“30, 2005, the third one in a series after Duisburg (2001) and Greenwich (2003).crowd gatherings like street parties and F1 Grand prix. ... pedestrians Because of the suboptimal light and angle conditions and the limited resolution of the equipment used, manual tracking is the only option for producing accurate outputs.
