Call for Papers

Technological developments in imaging, processing, and networking have created an opportunity for multi-disciplinary approaches to applications based on distributed computer vision. The extensive availability and use of cameras in various application domains calls for the study of new embedded processing systems and algorithms. After the successful 6th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC) in Hong Kong in 2012 and the previous ones in Vienna (2007), Stanford (2008), Como (2009), Atlanta (2010), and Ghent (2011), the seventh edition of the ICDSC will be held in Palm Springs, California, USA. The conference will attract researchers from multiple fields such as computer vision, pervasive computing, embedded systems, and sensor networks.
