This workshop is dedicated to smart cameras and their applications. Topics covered range from image sensors to co-operative vision algorithms, including embedded vision systems, parallel processing architectures, video compression and video analytics, artificial intelligence applied to image recognition and object detection, etc.

Present your work

Researchers and practitioners interested in attending the workshop, providing an oral presentation or showcasing a demo are invited to register by writing an e-mail to Ricardo Carmona. You should indicate full name and affiliation, and submit a 1-page abstract if you are interested in a time slot in the technical sessions.


WASC 2022 will be held in Barcelona at the Residència d’Investigadors, a public association created in 1993 by the Spanish CSIC and the Generalitat of Catalonia. Our programme will include technical sessions, invited talks from relevant actors in industry, professional advice for new PhD graduates, etc.

About WASC

The 10th Workshop on the Architecture of Smart Cameras is dedicated to all aspects of embedded vision systems, from image sensors to high-level information processing and smart camera networks. The purpose of this workshop is to provide attendees with an informal setting for discussing innovative work in progress on important new technical directions.

This year, WASC will be held on March 14-17, 2022 in Barcelona (Spain). Researchers and practitioners in this field are invited to register and submit proposals within the scope of the workshop for oral presentation and/or live demo. There is no paper publication, although be aware that public diffusion of your results in WASC may have an influence in the patentability of your results.

Technical sessions and side activities are part of the network-wide training programme of H2020 MSCA ACHIEVE-ITN. However, they are open to all WASC attendants.
