• The IEEE AVSS conference has a tradition of hosting surveillance-related workshops and contests on the day preceding the main conference
  • This tradition will continue at AVSS 2016, with the workshops being held on  August 23,  2016
  • Workshops on topics related to visual and signal-based surveillance, especially in new and upcoming research or application areas, are of great interest. Contests to evaluate performance of algorithms related to visual and signal-based surveillance are also of great interest. Past AVSS workshops include:
    • Performance Evaluation of Tracking Systems
    • Vehicle Retrieval in Surveillance
    • Automatic Traffic Surveillance
    • Activity Monitoring by Multiple Distributed Sensing
    • Identification and Surveillance for Border Control
    • Low-Resolution Face Analysis
  • Prospective workshop/contest organizers are invited to submit proposals via email to Conrad Sanderson (avss2016.workshops@gmail.com) by 7 March 2016
  • The proposal should include:
    • title of workshop/contest
    • list of organizers, including affiliation and email addresses
    • motivation for the workshop/contest
    • estimated participation (industry/academia)
    • anticipated number of talks/posters and length of workshop (half-day or full-day)
    • paper submission procedure (via web site, via email, etc)
    • paper review procedure (single-blind/double-blind, internal/external, solicited/invited-only, pool of reviewers, etc)
    • paper submission and acceptance deadlines
      • note: camera-ready and early registration deadlines for a workshop/contest must coincide with the corresponding deadlines for AVSS 2016
    • requests for special space and/or equipment, if any
  • We look forward to receiving your proposals!
