Guidelines for Paper Submission


Smart camera networks are becoming a fundamental piece of our intelligent cities, buildings and homes, progressively inserting themselves in 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 stuff, and of course the internet. This rapid development is being 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 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, and even fusing visual information with other sensory data.

The International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC) ---that is in its 10th edition--- is the appropriate forum to discuss recent advances and open issues in these topics. After the successful events celebrated in Sevilla (2015)Venice (2014)Palm Springs (2013)Hong Kong (2012)Ghent (2011)Atlanta (2010)Como (2009)Stanford (2008) and Vienna (2007), this year ICDSC will be held in Paris, France ---sponsored by the CEA, the Univ. Bourgogne Franche-Comté and the University Blaise Pascal, in-cooperation with ACM.

ICDSC 2016 will take place from 12 September to 15 September 2016 at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris in Paris, France.

Double blind review: ICDSC reviewing is double blind. Do not include any author information such as name and affiliations in the paper.

As with the previous editions, ICDSC 2016 will also feature a PhD Forum and a Demo Session.


Proceedings of ICDSC 2016 will be published at the ACM Digital Library within the International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).

Extended versions of selected papers from the conference will be published in a Special Issue of a JCR-indexed journal.
