ECCV Workshop on Multi-camera and Multi-modal Sensor Fusion - Call for Papers

October 18, 2008

Marseille, France

Paper submission deadline: June 9, 2008

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

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?"
