*IEEE GlobalSIP 2016 Symposium on Signal Processing for Understanding
Crowd Dynamics*
December 7-9, 2016, Greater Washington, D.C., USA
Symposium website:

Submission Deadline: *June 5, 2016*


The fourth *IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing
(GlobalSIP)* will be held in Washington, DC, USA on December 7-9, 2016.
GlobalSIP has rapidly assumed flagship status within the *IEEE Signal
Processing Society*. It focuses on signal and information processing and
up-and-coming signal processing themes. The conference aims to feature
world-class speakers, tutorials, exhibits, and oral and poster sessions.

The *Symposium on Signal Processing for Understanding Crowd Dynamics*
will focus on the signal processing challenges in analyzing potentially
crowded environments. This Symposium addresses timely and challenging
problems on realizing automatic ambient intelligent systems that are
able to deal with crowds from the signal processing perspective.
Standard signal processing approaches are typically not suited to this
kind of challenging environments and there is often the need of specific
methodologies and tools.

The symposium aims to bring together researchers, practitioners and
students from signal processing and surveillance-related fields to share
knowledge on methodologies, features and results related to the
evaluation, modeling and understanding of crowded environments.

This symposium focuses on underlying theory, methods, systems, and
applications of crowd analysis and understanding.

Topics of interest:
The list of topics of interest includes, but is not limited to:

  * Video analytics algorithms
  * Cognitive dynamic systems
  * Bio-inspired techniques
  * Simulation tools
  * Heterogeneous systems for signal processing
  * Interaction modeling
  * Crowd emotion sensing
  * Crowd behavior modeling
  * Graph signal processing
  * Deep learning
  * Big data analysis
  * Convolutional neural networks
  * Compressive sensing

Paper submission:
Prospective authors are invited to submit *full-length papers*, with up
to *5 pages* for technical content including figures, and with one
additional optional 6th page containing only references. Manuscripts
should be original (not submitted/published anywhere else) and written
in accordance with the standard IEEE double-column paper template. All
paper submissions should be carried out through EDAS system
( A selection of best papers and best student papers
will be made by the GlobalSIP 2016 best paper award committee upon
recommendations from Technical Committees.

The presented papers will be published in and indexed by *IEEE Xplore*.

Important dates:
Paper submission: *June 5, 2016*
Decision notifications:    August 5, 2016
Camera-ready papers:    September 6, 2016
