ACM Int. Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras

1 Février 2016

Catégorie : Conférence internationale

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 being 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, and even fusing visual information with other sensory data.

The ACM International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC) —that is now in its 10th edition— is the appropriate forum to discuss recent advances and open issues in these topics. After the successful events celebrated in 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 be held in Paris, France, September 12-15, 2016.
