Several improvements have been done, but more and more complex scenes (dense crowd, complex interactions) need more sophisticated approaches. Particularly long-term tracking is an interesting problem that allow to track objects even after it may become longtime occluded or it leave/re-enter the field-of-view. In this case the major challenges are significantly changes in appearance, scale and so on. At the heart of the solution of long-term tracking is the re-identification technique, that allows to identify an object coming back visible after an occlusion or re-entering on the scene. This paper proposes an approach for pedestrian re-identification based on structural representation of people. The experimental evaluation is carried out on two public data sets (ETHZ and CAVIAR4REID datasets) and they show promising results compared to others state-of-the-art approaches.}
