CFP: CVIU: Special Issue on 'Multi-camera and Multi-modalSensor Fusion'

Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU)
Call for Papers
Special Issue on 'Multi-camera and Multi-modal Sensor Fusion'
- deadline: January 10, 2009
- submission: - Select 'Special issue: Sensor Fusion'
Theme of the special issue
Advances in sensing technologies as well as the increasing availability of computational power and efficient bandwidth usage methods are favouring the emergence of applications based on distributed systems combining multiple cameras and other sensing modalities. These applications include audiovisual scene analysis, immersive human-computer interfaces, occupancy sensing and event detection for smart environment applications, automated collection, summarization and distribution of multi-sensor data, and enriched personal communication, just to mention a few. This special issue proposes to address the principal technical challenges in vision processing when the video modality is also supported by other inputs such as audio, speech, context, depth sensors, and/or other cameras. Topics of interest to the special issue include:
- Multi-camera system algorithms and applications
- Multi-modal systems and data fusion methods
- Distributed sensing and processing methods for human-centric applications
- Distributed multi-modal scene analysis and event interpretation
- Automated annotation and summarization of multi-view video
- Automated creation of audiovisual reports (from meetings, lectures, sport events, etc.)
- Multi-modal gesture recognition
- Multi-modal human-computer interfaces
- Data processing and fusion in multi-modal embedded systems
- Context awareness and behaviour modelling
- Performance evaluation metrics
- Applications in distributed surveillance, smart rooms, virtual reality, and e-health
* Deadline for manuscript submission: January 10, 2009 (extended)
- First notification: April 10, 2009
- Revised manuscripts due: May 30, 2009
- Notification of final decision: July 15, 2009
- Camera-ready manuscript: July 30, 2009
- Publication of the special issue (tentative): 4th Quarter 2009
Submission Guidelines
- Papers must be submitted at by selecting the special issue option: 'Sensor Fusion'
- The submission guide for authors:
- Only papers meeting the scope of the special issue will be considered for review. If in doubt concerning the relevance of a proposed paper, the authors are encouraged to contact the guest editors prior to paper submission.
