IEEE GlobalSIP 2016 Symposium on Signal Processing for Understanding Crowd Dynamics
December 7-9, 2016, Greater Washington, D.C., USA
Symposium website:

Submission Deadline: June 20, 2016 (extended)


The fourth IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing (GlobalSIP) will be held in Washington, DC, USA on December 7-9, 2016. GlobalSIP has rapidly assumed flagship status within the IEEE Signal Processing Society. It focuses on signal and information processing and up-and-coming signal processing themes. The conference aims to feature world-class speakers, tutorials, exhibits, and oral and poster sessions.

The Symposium on Signal Processing for Understanding Crowd Dynamics will focus on the signal processing challenges in analyzing potentially crowded environments. This Symposium addresses timely and challenging problems on realizing automatic ambient intelligent systems that are able to deal with crowds from the signal processing perspective. Standard signal processing approaches are typically not suited to this kind of challenging environments and there is often the need of specific methodologies and tools.

The symposium aims to bring together researchers, practitioners and students from signal processing and surveillance-related fields to share knowledge on methodologies, features and results related to the evaluation, modeling and understanding of crowded environments.

This symposium focuses on underlying theory, methods, systems, and applications of crowd analysis and understanding.

Topics of interest:
The list of topics of interest includes, but is not limited to:

Video analytics algorithms
Cognitive dynamic systems
Bio-inspired techniques
Simulation tools
Heterogeneous systems for signal processing
Interaction modeling
Crowd emotion sensing
Crowd behavior modeling
Graph signal processing
Deep learning
Big data analysis
Convolutional neural networks
Compressive sensing

Paper submission:
Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers, with up to 5 pages for technical content including figures, and with one additional optional 6th page containing only references. Manuscripts should be original (not submitted/published anywhere else) and written in accordance with the standard IEEE double-column paper template. All paper submissions should be carried out through EDAS system ( A selection of best papers and best student papers will be made by the GlobalSIP 2016 best paper award committee upon recommendations from Technical Committees.

The presented papers will be published in and indexed by IEEE Xplore.

Important dates:
Paper submission: June 20, 2016 (extended)
Decision notifications: August 5, 2016
Camera-ready papers: September 6, 2016
