Visual surveillance has grown in importance in the domain of automated monitoring of human behaviour and its analysis in confined environments as well as large social areas. Single camera as well as multi-camera network is employed for the purpose of analysis of human behaviour which finds practical application in security, market analysis, and so on.

Signal processing and information extraction of the bulk amount of acquired video is a primitive task in visual surveillance. This special issue aims to call for recent original research works, review articles, case studies, comparative performance analysis in the said domain from researchers, academicians and practitioners around the globe.
