|The role of signal processing in cognitive systems and multimedia security
Organizer: Carlo Regazzoni (University of Genova)
Signal processing (SP) is the enabling technology for the generation, transformation, and interpretation of information. Signal Processing Society serves its members through high quality publications, conference, technical and educational activities, and leadership opportunities. Its goal is to keep members abreast of the latest information and to serve the public at large.
|8th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal Based Surveillance
AVSS is the prominent IEEE conference series on video and signal-based surveillance. AVSS provides a forum bringing together participants from the worlds of research, industry and government agencies sharing interest in various forms of surveillance. Starting in Genoa in 1998, it has continued to take place in exciting cities all over the world. We are happy to host the 8th edition of AVSS in Klagenfurt, Austria from August 30 to September 2, 2011. We will prepare an attractive conference program which will include special sessions, keynotes and plenary talks as well as a challenge session. For the first time AVSS will host an Industrial Surveillance Day—co-organized by the Austrian Institute of Technology—with the aim to offer an international forum of discussion between the scientific community and industry. The summer school of the international PhD program on Interactive and Cognitive Environments will be co-located as a side event. AVSS-2011 welcomes contributions in various areas including: (a) safety and security, (b) smart and simulated environments, (c) multi-dimensional signal processing, (d) reactive sensor networks and multimedia, (e) pattern recognition, computer vision, and machine learning, (f) multisensor data fusion and architectures, (g) systems; and it also gives unique emphasis to cross-disciplinary and visionary papers. Please mark your calendar for AVSS-2011 and check this website for updates. Looking forward to seeing you in Klagenfurt! Gian Luca Foresti and Bernhard Rinner General Chairs
|1st IEEE/ICE Summer School on Networked Embedded Systems (ICESS2011) 2-7 September 2011 - Klagenfurt
The IEEE/ICE Summer School on Networked Embedded Systems (ICESS2011) aims to provide both a clear overview and an in-depth presentation of state-of-the-art research in networked embedded systems. ICESS2011 is part of the Erasumus Mundus PhD Program on “Interactive and Cognitive Environments (ICE)”. The summer school is organized by the Institute of Networked and Embedded Systems and held right after the AVSS conference at Klagenfurt University. The topics of this summer school might be interesting for conference attendees and can be optimally joined together. If you are interested in this summer school send your application documents no later than June 01, 2011. Further information can be found here.
|6th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-Based Surveillance
AVSS is the IEEE conference series on video and signal based surveillance. Starting in 1998, most recent previous editions were held in 2006 (Sydney, Australia), in 2007 (London, UK) and in 2008 (Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA). AVSS is a forum of reference for the field and offers the opportunity to meet and foster collaboration. AVSS has a tradition of participation from the worlds of research, industry, and relevant government agencies. TV coverage of the Event: Tg3 Telegenova TeleNord

In this talk, the problem of designing artificial systems to provide cognitive capabilities is discussed as related to extensions of perception and reasoning that make it possible by different ways of strengthening the structure and the functionalities of the systems themselves. In particular, three main directions are explored with respect to improvements of functionalities made possible by: - Presence of multiple sensing modalities within the sensing cognitive part; - Capability of the system moving within a mapped referenced world; - Capability of the cognitive artificial system formed by multiple homogeneous cognitive units cooperating to reach system functionalities.

We discuss the problem of learning such relationships using a hierarchical representation allowing the system to transform the sensor data to signals and then to symbols at different levels of abstraction. It is shown how symbols can represent at lower levels, time-fixed categorized situations, so as to allow noise to be removed from sensory data, and at higher levels, temporal events representing temporal variations of situations. Finally, second order differential equations including internal and external events are introduced representing cause-effect relationships and their representation within the analysis part of the artificial cognitive entity. A method is presented to represent sets of such equations into a discrete space that can be interpreted as the autobiographical memory of the system. It is shown how the smart space can use such memory to learn personalized interactions with users, as well as to predict expected behavioural consequences of observed situations, activating specific parts of what can be called as autobiographical self, being inspired by analogies introduced in the neuroscience domain.
