*Call for Participation: ONR/ARO/NSF (Pending) Interdisciplinary
Workshop on Distributed Video Sensor Networks*
We are organizing a workshop on *Video Sensor Networks* to be held on
May 11-12, 2009, to assess the current state of technology in this
interdisciplinary field, set the research agenda for future work, and
recommend approaches to educating engineers and scientists. The workshop
will be held at the University of California, Riverside, with the
sponsorship of Office of Naval Research, Army Research Office and
National Science Foundation (Pending).
We would like to solicit your input in the form of *one page summary* of
your work in this area, including references, relevant to one or more of
the core topics (a-e) listed below. *If your summary is selected as
being suitable for the workshop, we will place you on the agenda and
offer some support toward your travel costs.*
Research in video sensor networks is highly interdisciplinary and
requires expertise from a variety of fields, such as wireless sensor
networks, video analysis, cooperative control, communications, sensor
design, and graphics. /*The aim of the workshop is to bring together
leading researchers from these different areas for a focused discussion
on the future challenges and research directions in camera networks.*/
We will discuss issues pertinent to the problem: (a) Distributed
Embedded Cameras and Real-time Video Analysis, (b) Distributed Video
Sensing, Processing, Fusion, and Control, (c) Distributed Video
Communications and Wireless Networks, (d) Distributed Video
Understanding and Simulation/Graphics, and (e) Educational Opportunities
and Curriculum Development.
The workshop will feature presentations by leading researchers and
educators in these different areas, followed by multiple breakout
sessions and brainstorming meetings. This workshop will be a unique
opportunity for experts in different fields to interact with each other
and set the research agenda for this emerging interdisciplinary field.
We expect attendees from academia, industry, and from sponsoring and
other government agencies.
Please email your summary (not exceeding one page) in the pdf form by
March 30, 2009 to _jgonzalez at vislab.ucr.edu_
<mailto:jgonzalez at vislab.ucr.edu>. We will notify you of your selection
by April 2, 2009.
We look forward to hearing from you.
