International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (3 Day Conference)

The International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC) – that is in its 11th edition – is the appropriate forum to discuss recent advances and open issues in smart camera networks. We return this year to the Stanford venue, location of the 2008 ICDSC Conference, hosted again by mediaX at Stanford University, in collaboration with Prefixa.

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.

Join us September 5th-7th at Stanford University for the 11th International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC). Registrants will have access to the full conference event including the welcome reception, gala dinner and an electronic copy of the ACM proceedings.
