AVSS is the premier annual international conference in the field of video and signal-based surveillance that brings together experts from academia, industry, and government to advance theories, methods, systems, and applications related to surveillance. AVSS is sponsored by the IEEE and, in particular, by its two societies, the Signal Processing Society (IVMSP TC) and the IEEE Computer Society (PAMI TC).
AVSS will celebrate its 11th anniversary in Seoul in 2014. It has been steadily growing in both stature and attendance, from about 70 attendees in 1998 (Genova, Italy) to 125 in 2010 (Boston, USA), 140 in 2011 (Klagenfurt, Austria), and about 160 in 2013 (Krakow, Poland). A strong attendance is expected in Seoul in 2014. AVSS focuses on underlying theory, methods, systems, and applications of surveillance and invites submissions in areas listed below, especially cross-disciplinary and game-changing ones.
