Dear Colleague,
this is the Call for Papers for the 1st International Workshop on Distributed Smart Cameras (IWDSC), which will be virtually held in conjunction with the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV).

All the following information is also available at https://iwdsc.github.io/

Apologies if you receive this more than once.

Smart camera networks are becoming a fundamental piece of our intelligent cities, buildings, and homes, progressively inserting themselves into our lives. From smart surveillance systems composed of a multitude of smart camera nodes to small wearable cameras able to render a visual log of our daily experience, these devices interact with each other and with a wealth of other smart things, and of course the internet. Their rapid development is possible thanks to the convergence of several technologies. From advanced image sensors and vision chips to embedded vision systems capable of efficient feature extraction, image encoding and wireless transmission of the relevant visual content: This technology opens the door to new application domains, where video analytics and the extraction of semantic information from the scene is performed in a distributed fashion, implementing a new type of cooperative and/or collaborative vision. 

The IWDSC team has previously organized 12 editions of the International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC) with ACM as an international forum to discuss recent advances and open issues in these topics.

Submission site is open, and accessible at: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/DSC2021

Each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the scientific Program Committee, in double-blind fashion. The submitted papers should present original work, not currently under review elsewhere and should have no substantial overlap with already published work. Submissions should be submitted in PDF and should be no more than 8 pages following the ICCV main Conference paper format and guidelines (https://iwdsc.github.io/submissions/).

Important Dates
Paper Submission Deadline: July 17, 2021 (11:59PM Pacific Time)
Paper Submission Deadline for main conference rejected papers (*): July 28, 2021 (11:59PM Pacific Time)
Reviews Released to Authors: August 11, 2021 (11:59PM Pacific Time)
Camera ready due: August 16, 2021 (11:59PM Pacific Time)
(*) In case of rejection from ICCV, authors can submit their work to the workshop. Authors should address all ICCV reviewers’ comments in the submitted paper and submit the ICCV reviews as supplementary material.

Proceedings and Special Issue 
Accepted papers will be published within the ICCV Workshop Proceedings. Authors of high quality papers will be invited to extend their work and submit it for a special issue in a JCR-indexed journal.
