ECCV Workshop on Multi-camera and Multi-modal Sensor Fusion 

http://www.elec.qmul.ac.uk/staffinfo/andrea/M2SFA2.html 

October 18, 2008 - Marseille, France

 

 

** NEWS **

 

1. Paper submission deadline: July 10, 2008 (extended)

 

2. The workshop will feature a Best Paper Prize sponsored by Mitsubishi
Electric Research Laboratories (MERL)

 

3. Special Issue: extended versions of selected papers will be
considered for publication in a special issue of the Computer Vision and
Image Understanding journal  

 

 

** Scope **

 

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 workshop addresses the principal technical challenges in
multi-camera processing when the video modality is also supported by
other inputs such as audio, speech, context, depth sensors, and other
modalities. The goal of the workshop is to gather high-quality
contributions describing leading-edge research in joint capture and
analysis of multi-sensor signals as well as to stimulate interaction
among the participants through a panel discussion followed by a group
discussion. Topics of interest to the workshop include:

 

- Multi-camera and multi-modal systems and sensor fusion

- 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 and speech recognition

- Multi-modal human-computer interfaces

- Data processing and fusion in distributed embedded systems 

- Context-awareness and behaviour modelling 

- Performance evaluation metrics

- Applications in distributed surveillance, smart rooms, virtual
reality, and e-health

 

Papers reporting on multi-camera networks (without multi-modal sensing)
are also welcomed.

 

** Workshop format **

 

In addition to single-track oral presentations and posters, this
workshop will feature a closing panel discussion on "Application-driven
design of multi-camera systems" and a group discussion and brainstorming
session on "Opportunities in multi-sensor research: driven by concept or
technology?"

 

 

** Paper Submission **

 

Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission at
http://www.elec.qmul.ac.uk/staffinfo/andrea/M2SFA2.html

 

** Important Dates **

 

Full paper submission: July 10, 2008 (extended)

Notification of acceptance: August 10, 2008 

Final paper submission: August 25, 2008 

Workshop date: October 18, 2008
