AMMDS 2015

3rd Workshop on Activity Monitoring by Multiple Distributed Sensing (AMMDS)



In last decade, there has been a growing diffusion of many different kind of sensing device (static and mobile) for environmental monitoring and surveillance purposes. Distributed sensor systems have become a highly active research area due to their potential for providing diverse new capabilities applications. By analyzing information from different sensors it is possible to monitor activities in large, complex areas such as buildings, airports, road and rail networks, sport grounds. Multiple distributed sensing systems can provide more confident deductions about the events of interest and reduce ambiguities, caused by using a single sensor (in number or in typology).

Scope of the Workshop

The focus of the Workshop is on distributed computing issues in large-scale networked sensor systems (including algorithms and applications, systems design techniques and tools, and in network signal and information processing). Aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from different communities (such as Computer Vision, networked embedded sensing, artificial intelligence and so on) which address the problem of interpretation of the information coming from multiple distributed sensing systems.

The Workshop is the natural evolution of previous AMMCSS, with the generalization to multiple distributed sensing instead of only multi-camera systems.

In December 2014, Springer published a book titled “Human behavior understanding in Networked Sensing – Theory & Applications”, based on the previous AMMDS experiences, and containing extended versions of Workshop papers.

We would like to invite original research papers describing significant results by using multiple distributed sensing for monitoring and surveillance purposes.
