The 17th IEEE International Conf on Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance (AVSS 2021)

November 16-19, 2021 | Virtual

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance (AVSS 2021) , sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (PAMI TC) and the IEEE Signal Processing Society, is the premier forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the field of video and signal-based surveillance.

The goal is to provide a game-changing and cross-disciplinary forum that brings together experts from academia, industry, and government to advance the frontiers of theories, methods, systems, and applications.

Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality full papers representing original results in all areas of video and
signal-based surveillance.

Submissions and final papers are limited to 6 pages in double-column IEEE format, including figures, tables, and references. Accepted papers are published in the conference proceedings that will be also available in the IEEE Xplore digital library.
