The 11th IEEE Advanced Video and Signal-Based Surveillance (AVSS 2014)

August 26-29, 2014

HanaSquare, Korea University, Seoul, Korea

Call for Papers

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

Sensor-Centric Processing Processing, Detection, Tracking & Recognition
  • Sensors (visible/infrared/3D/mm-wave/ audio/radio, etc.)
  • Modeling and feature selection
  • Ground, airborne, satellite based (fixed/ mobile/UAV)
  • Detection and estimation (change, motion, anomaly, saliency, pattern)
  • Crowdsourcing (cellular, social networks)
  • Data association and (multi) target tracking
  • Calibration and positioning (GPS, etc.)
  • Classification and recognition
  • Communications and networked sensing
  • Multi-modal fusion
Data Management & Human-Computer Interaction Analytics, Situation Awareness & Decision Making
  • Compression and summarization
  • Activity/interaction analysis and monitoring
  • Archival, search and retrieval
  • Intention
  • Human-computer interfaces
  • estimation and situation awareness
  • Visualization algorithms
  • Crowdsourcing-based methods
  • Mobile and distributed interaction
  • Cognitive dynamic systems and bio-inspired methods
Security and Privacy Surveillance Systems and Applications
  • Data authenticity
  • Hardware and software architectures
  • Privacy in surveillance
  • Research prototypes
  • Forensics
  • Simulators
  • Biometrics (standoff, multi-modal, voice, etc.)
  • Civilian, industrial, and military
  • Cybersecurity for surveillance (wireless, network, computer)
  • Transportation (road, rail, air, maritime)
  • Performance evaluation

Paper Submission

Original contributions in any of the above (or related) areas are being solicited. Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers, up to 6 pages long, including results, figures, tables and references by the due date (see below). Detailed submission instructions will be posted on Paper Submission page in due time. Each submission will be double-blind peer-reviewed by at least two experts. The conference proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore digital library.

Call for Workshops

AVSS-2014 will host workshops on August 26, 2014 prior to the technical program of the conference. Prospective organizers are invited to submit workshop proposals by February 14, 2014. Detailed instructions regarding workshop proposal preparation and submission can be found on the Call for Workshops page.
