ICDSC 2011 : International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras
Conference Series : International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras
Call For Papers
Technological developments in imaging, processing, and networking have created an opportunity for multi-disciplinary approaches to applications based on vision. The extensive availability and use of cameras in various application domains calls for the study of new embedded and distributed processing systems and algorithms. After the successful meetings in Vienna (2007), Stanford (2008), Como (2009) and Atlanta (2010), the fifth edition of the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras will be held in the ancient and lively city of Ghent. The conference will attract researchers from multiple fields such as computer vision, pervasive computing, embedded systems and sensor networks. ICDSC 2011 will be co-located with Advanced Concepts for Intelligent Vision Systems (ACIVS 2011), a vision systems conference. Attendance to both conferences is possible by subscribing to one.
Smart camera and network architectures:
•Camera node architectures
•Image sensing techniques for smart cameras
•Architectures and protocols for camera networks
•Embedded vision programming
Visual sensor networks:
•Resource management in camera networks
•Automatic reconfiguration of sensor networks
•Wireless and mobile image sensor networks
•Multi-modal sensor networks
Distributed computer vision and fusion:

The conference invites researchers and industry-based developers to participate in a demo session and present the latest results implemented in related areas.
Accepted papers will be published and catalogued at IEEEXplore. Authors of high-quality articles will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue. As with the previous editions, ICDSC 2011 will feature a PhD Forum where students present and defend their research topics and receive feedback from a panel.
