Content Gazette - November 2012 - 25

AVSS is the premier annual international conference in the field of video and signal-based surveillance
that brings together experts from academia, industry, and government to advance theories, methods,
systems, and applications related to surveillance. AVSS is sponsored by the IEEE and, in particular, by its
two societies, the Signal Processing Society (IVMSP TC) and the IEEE Computer Society (PAMI TC).
AVSS will celebrate its 10th anniversary in Kraków in 2013. It has been steadily growing in both stature
and attendance, from about 70 attendees in 1998 (Genova, Italy) to 125 in 2010 (Boston, USA) and 140 in
2011 (Klagenfurt, Austria). Even more attendees are expected in 2012 in Beijing, China.

About Kraków: The royal capital of Poland until late 16th century, today Kraków is home to a quarter of
country's museum resources. Visiting Kraków amounts to an encounter with the most splendid time in
Polish history. Its Old City, where AVSS will be held, the Wawel Hill and the district of Kazimierz were all
entered into the 1978 UNESCO World Heritage List. Beyond history, Kraków offers scenic walks, lots of
artistic and cultural events, and rich gastronomy. Located in the heart of Central Europe, Kraków is easily
accessible by air, rail and roadway.

Paper Submission: Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers, up to 6 pages long, by
March 18, 2013. Detailed submission instructions will be posted on the conference website at
www.avss2013.org in due time. Each submission will be double-blind peer-reviewed by at least two
experts. The conference proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore digital library.
Call for Workshops: AVSS-2013 will host workshops on August 27, 2013 prior to the technical program of
the conference. Prospective organizers are invited to submit workshop proposals by February 18, 2013.
