Call For Workshops

The IEEE Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance (AVSS) has developed a tradition of hosting surveillance-related workshops on the day preceding the main conference. Recent AVSS workshops included:

  • Performance Evaluation of Tracking Systems (PETS)
  • Resource Aware Sensor and surveillance NETworkS (RAWSNETS)
  • Activity Monitoring by Multi-Camera Surveillance Systems (AMMCSS)
  • Activity Monitoring by Multiple Distributed Sensing (AMMDS)
  • Workshop on Multimedia Systems for Surveillance (MMSS)
  • Vehicle Retrieval in Surveillance (VRS)
  • Low Resolution Face Analysis (LRFA)

This tradition will continue at AVSS-2017 and workshops will be held on August 29 2017 prior to the start of the technical program of AVSS. Of interest are workshops on topics related to visual and signal-based surveillance especially in new and upcoming research areas. Also, contests to evaluate performance of algorithms related to visual and signal-based surveillance are of great interest.

Prospective workshop/contest organizers are invited to submit proposals via email to no later than February 28th, 2017. The proposal should include the following information:

  1. workshop/contest title,
  2. list of organizers including affiliation and email address,
  3. workshop/contest motivation,
  4. estimated participation (industry/academia),
  5. anticipated number of talks/posters and length of workshop (half-day or full-day),
  6. paper submission procedure (submission via web site, via email, etc.),
  7. paper review procedure (single-blind/double-blind, internal/external, solicited/invited-only, pool of reviewers, etc.),
  8. paper submission and acceptance deadlines (camera-ready and early registration deadlines for a workshop/contest must coincide with the corresponding deadlines of AVSS-2017 – see Important Dates on Call for Papers).
  9. special space and equipment requests, if any.


We are looking forward to receive your proposals!
