Call for papers: "Signal Processing for Visual Surveillance"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Machine Intelligence and Sensory Signal Processing.

Visual surveillance has grown in importance in the domain of automated monitoring of human behaviour and its analysis in confined environments as well as large social areas. Single camera as well as multi-camera network is employed for the purpose of analysis of human behaviour which finds practical application in security, market analysis, and so on.

Signal processing and information extraction of the bulk amount of acquired video is a primitive task in visual surveillance. This special issue aims to call for recent original research works, review articles, case studies, comparative performance analysis in the said domain from researchers, academicians and practitioners around the globe.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Single camera surveillance systems
  • Multi-camera networks for object tracking
  • Algorithms for object tracking
  • Behaviour analysis and gesture recognition
  • Human recognition through gait pattern
  • Camera network localisation
  • Surveillance in non-visual spectrums
  • Occlusion handling
  • Mobile camera network calibration
  • Real-time visual surveillance
  • Video processing and coding for large data storage
  • Performance and connectivity analysis of camera networks
  • Placement and camera resource optimisation
  • Surveillance in open public areas
  • Challenges in automated surveillance
  • 3-D reconstruction and holography from multiple cameras
  • Feature-based object recognition
  • Applications in live sport telecasting
  • Applications in cinematography

Important Dates:
Paper submission: 20 July, 2013
Notification of first revisions/acceptance: 30 August, 2013
Submission of revised versions: 20 September, 2013
Final notification of acceptance/rejection: 5 October, 2013
