Call for Papers

Deadline Extension: May 11, 2014

With progressive deployment of smart cameras into conventional camera networks and emerging mobile applications, new research and development opportunities have arisen. Open issues in resource management and task allocation, embedding video analytics into low power devices, organizing the sensor network, efficient video communication, edge/cloud computing, distributed analysis, etc., require the commitment of researchers in different fields for a multidisciplinary approach. The eighth edition of the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC) will be held in Venezia, ITALY. Venezia is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and will be a perfect venue for presenting the innovations in the field after the past editions in Palm Springs (2013), Hong Kong (2012), Ghent (2011), Atlanta (2010), Como (2009), Stanford (2008) and Vienna (2007). Coincidentally, the dates of this year fit well with another major conference (IEEE ICIP - http://icip2014.wp.mines-telecom.fr/), which will be held in Paris, France one week before the ICDSC, allowing the participants to connect the two events in two wonderful cities.


Papers are invited in the following and related areas:

Smart camera and network architectures
Camera system designs and architectures
Image sensing and processing for smart cameras
Architectures and protocols for camera networks
Embedded vision programming
Distributed video coding

As with the previous editions, ICDSC 2014 will feature a PhD Forum where students present and defend their research topics and receive feedback from an academic jury. Accepted papers (including demo and PhD forum papers) will be published and catalogued at the IEEEXplore.
