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.
The IEEE SPS Italy Chapter was established in October 2011 aiming at linking together Italian researchers working in the field of signal processing.
The National Telecommunications and Information Technology Group (GTTI) is an association of professors and researchers of Italian universities and companies who operate in the field of telecommunications and, more generally, in the broad area of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The annual meeting of GTTI is an opportunity for people from academic and industrial world to meet annually to discuss scientific, teaching and technological transfer issues.
GTTI and the IEEE SPS Italy Chapter have agreed this year to organize a joint event as a special scientific session within the 2012 yearly GTTI meeting in Villasimius, Cagliari in the afternoon of June, 26th 2012. Cognitive and Secure Signal processing will be targeted as two fields in the signal processing domain characterized by an high interest in recent years.
Cognitive Signal Processing is a new paradigm that is at the basis of a new digitally oriented design of classical analog systems that are well known to the Telecommunications community: Radio, Radar and CCTV Camera networks are example of systems where sensor data signal processing issues have been diffusively studied together with communications and networking problems by Telecommunications community in order to improve performances and provide solutions to different applications domains. Re-designing such systems under a digital viewpoint makes it necessary to redefine new more complex and reconfigurable signal processing chains, not only increasing context representation capabilities but also decision oriented self-awareness functionalities that impact on processing design.
Secure Signal Processing is here addressed as an enabling methodology at the basis of new applications aiming at providing tools to make more secure exchange of multimedia information when using the vast variety of digital communication channels today available. Multimedia signals exchange requires not only trustable systems to be studied and developed, but also techniques to be addressed for discovering possible violations to potential multimedia information sources.
During this session different aspects will be covered of signal processing industrial and academic research and development activities in Italy. Contributions will be presented from a significant sample of companies using at various extent signal processing in their R&D projects in the field of cognitive and secure applications.
Italian academic active members of the international IEEE SPS community playing role in the society Technical committees will provide overviews and example of research trends and projects currently at the center of the research interest of the community.

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.

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.
