AVSS is the IEEE conference series on video and signal based
surveillance. AVSS is a forum of reference for the field and has a
tradition of participation from the worlds of research, industry, and
relevant government agencies. AVSS welcomes contributions in traditional
disciplines such as signal processing, image and video processing, audio
processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision, and it also gives
unique emphasis to cross-disciplinary and visionary papers. High-quality
contributions are sought on underlying theory, methods, systems, and
applications. The list of topics of interest includes, but is not
limited to:

- Sensors and early vision; Infrared imaging; 3D vision for surveillance
applications; Omnidirectional vision;
- Multi-sensor/distributed data fusion; Heterogeneous sensor processing;

- Sensor networks for surveillance applications; Multi-camera
calibration;
- Motion detection and object tracking; Object-background segmentation;
Statistical methods and learning;
- Object classification and recognition; Video analysis and event
recognition; Gesture and action recognition;
- Activity monitoring; Interaction modelling; Behaviour analysis;
Pattern recognition for surveillance applications;
- Face detection and recognition;
- Performance evaluation of surveillance systems;
- Audio surveillance;
- Visualization tools for surveillance applications; Perceptual
interfaces;
- Image and video archival and retrieval; Digital watermarking;
- Threat assessment; Chemical/biological signal processing; Bio-inspired
cognitive surveillance;
- Civilian applications; Military applications; Hardware and software
architectures.
