Distributed smart cameras combine techniques from computer vision, distributed processing, sensor networks, and embedded computing. Technological advances in the design of sensors and processors have facilitated the development of efficient embedded vision-based techniques. Design of scalable, network-based applications based on high-bandwidth data such as images requires a change of paradigm in the processing methodologies, thus creating opportunities for designing distributed and collaborative vision-based techniques. As a result, novel smart environment applications can be enabled that are interpretive, context aware, and user centric in nature.

The conference aims to provide an opportunity for researchers investigating the areas of smart camera architectures, algorithm design, embedded vision-based processing, and smart environments to exchange their most recent results. Offering insight into the potentials and challenges of distributed vision networks and an outlook of research opportunities ahead are also the objectives of the conference. Presentations accompanied by demonstrations and contributions based on industrial applications are also of interest.
