Call for Papers: ICAS 2021 Autonomous Vehicle Vision (AVVision) Special Session (Deadline: March 03, 2021) 

ICAS is a flagship event sponsored by IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) through IEEE SPS Autonomous Systems Initiative.

Special Session Website: https://avvision.xyz/icas21/

With a number of breakthroughs in autonomous system technology over the past decade, the race to commercialize self-driving cars has become fiercer than ever. The integration of advanced sensing, computer vision, signal/image processing, and machine/deep learning into autonomous vehicles enables them to perceive the environment intelligently and navigate safely. Autonomous driving is required to ensure safe, reliable, and efficient automated mobility in complex uncontrolled real-world environments. Various applications range from automated transportation and farming to public safety and environment exploration. Visual perception is a critical component of autonomous driving. Enabling technologies include: a) affordable sensors that can acquire useful data under varying environmental conditions, b) reliable simultaneous localization and mapping, c) machine learning that can effectively handle varying real-world conditions and unforeseen events, as well as “machine-learning friendly” signal processing to enable more effective classification and decision making, and d) resilient and robust platforms that can withstand adversarial attacks and failures. The  <https://avvision.xyz/> Autonomous Vehicle Vision (AVVision) Special Session at  <https://2021.ieee-icas.org/> the IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Systems 2021 (ICAS'21) will cover all these topics. Research papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following topics: 


Dr. Rui Ranger Fan, UC San Diego

Prof. Ioannis Pitas, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Important Dates

Full Paper Submission: 03/03/2021
Notification of Acceptance: 05/21/2021
Camera-Ready Paper Submission: 06/01/2021 


Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers (up to 4 pages for technical content including figures and possible references, and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references) via the IEEE ICAS 2021 conference website. Manuscripts should be original (not submitted/published anywhere else) and written in accordance with the standard double-column SPS IEEE conference format.

IEEE ICAS 2021 requires that each accepted paper be presented by one of the authors in-person at the conference site according to the schedule to be published. Any paper accepted into the technical program, but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official proceedings archived on IEEE Xplore.

Dear Organizers,



We are glad to inform you that your proposal entitled " Autonomous Vehicle Vision (AVVision)" has been approved for inclusion in the IEEE ICAS 2021's Special Session (SS) Programme.

The committee and reviewers were impressed by the proposal. One recommendation was that you could perhaps consider modifying the title of the proposal to narrow the scope and construct a more focused special session. Additionally, you could consider eliminating topics “d) hardware and software codesign” and “f) end-to-end system integration”. These are not mandatory changes, but the overall impression of the committee was that in its current form the scope of the session is very broad. 


The "Paper Submission Deadline" for SS papers is March 3, 2021 as such please contact authors of the proposed contributed papers in your SS to proceed with submission of their papers in a timely fashion.  


Congratulations again and looking forward to hosting your SS at ICAS'2021.


Warm Regards,


IEEE ICAS 2021's Special Session Chairs.

Malika Meghjani and Mark Coates
