*Workshop on Signal Processing for Understanding Crowd Dynamics
(SP-CROWD 2017) at IEEE AVSS2017 *
August 29 - September 1, 2017, "Carlo V" Castle, Lecce - ITALY
Main conference website:
Workshop website:

Workshop Submission Deadline: *April 30, 2017*


Call for papers

*AVSS*is the premier annual international conference in the field
of*video and signal-based surveillance*that brings together experts from
academia, industry, and government to advance theories, methods,
systems, and applications related to surveillance.

AVSS is sponsored by the IEEE and, in particular, by its two societies,
the Signal Processing Society (IVMSP TC) and the IEEE Computer Society

The Workshop on Signal Processing for Understanding Crowd Dynamics will
focus on the signal processing challenges in analyzing potentially
crowded environments. This Workshop 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 workshop 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 workshop focuses on underlying theory, methods, systems, and
applications of crowd analysis and understanding and invites submissions
in areas listed below. 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
  * Multimedia and multi-modal analysis

    Paper submission

Papers must be written in English and submitted in *PDF format*, each
submission must be *between 4 and 6 A4 pages* long.

Each submission will be double-blindly peer-reviewed by at least
two experts. This requires the paper to be anonymous, please read
the instructions included in the paper templates.

All papers must be submitted via the SP-CROWD2017 submission site
(Microsoft CMT) <>.
Deadline is *April 30th*, at 23:59:59 PST. For any question email to
[hidden email] <mailto:[hidden email]>.

A paper submission implies that, if the paper is accepted, one of the
authors, or a proxy, will present the paper at the conference.
Submissions not using the above templates or disclosing identity of the
authors will be rejected without review.

The presented papers will be published in and indexed byIEEE Xplore
