Present CFP : 2017

Smart camera networks are becoming a fundamental piece of our intelligent cities, buildings and homes, progressively inserting themselves into our lives. From smart surveillance systems composed of a multitude of smart camera nodes to small wearable cameras able to render a visual log of our daily experience, these devices interact with each other and with a wealth of other smart things, and of course the internet. Their rapid development is possible thanks to the convergence of several technologies. From advanced image sensors and vision chips to embedded vision systems capable of efficient feature extraction, image encoding and wireless transmission of the relevant visual content: This technology opens the door to new application domains, where
video analytics and the extraction of semantic information from the scene is performed in a distributed fashion, implementing a new type of cooperative and/or collaborative vision.
The 11th edition of the ACM International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC) is the appropriate forum to discuss recent advances and open issues in these topics. After the successful events celebrated in Paris (2016), Seville (2015), Venice (2014), Palm Springs (2013), Hong Kong (2012), Ghent (2011), Atlanta (2010), Como (2009), Stanford (2008) and Vienna (2007), this year ICDSC will come back to Stanford University in California.

Double blind review: ICDSC reviewing is double blind. Do not include any author information such as name and affiliations in the paper. As with the previous editions, ICDSC 2017 will feature a Ph.D. Forum and a Demo Session.
Proceedings will be published at ACM DL. Authors of high-quality papers will be invited to extend their work and submit it for a special issue in a JCR- indexed journal. More information available at the conference website:
