Computer seeks submissions for a May 2014 special issue on smart camera networks.

Due to simultaneous advances in four key disciplines—computer vision, image sensors, embedded computing, and sensor networks—smart camera networks have emerged over the past decade. These real-time, distributed, embedded systems use multiple cameras to capture data in private as well as public environments, with applications in security, monitoring, and smart environments.

The guest editors solicit papers covering all areas of smart camera networks including hardware-, software- and system-level aspects. The specifically invite contributions providing an interdisciplinary view of this topic or reporting on real deployments and novel applications. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • novel camera and camera network design and architectures,
  • network-level video processing and analysis,
  • network-level coordination and control,
  • distributed processing in camera networks,
  • human interaction with camera networks,
  • camera networks on mobile platforms, and
  • emerging applications.

Articles should be original and understandable to a broad audience of computer science and engineering professionals, avoiding a focus on theory, mathematics, jargon, and abstract concepts. All manuscripts are subject to peer review on both technical merit and relevance to Computer's readership. Accepted papers will be professionally edited for content and style

The guest editors for this special issue are Martin Reisslein, Arizona State University; Bernhard Rinner, Klagenfurt University; and Amit Roy-Chowdhury, University of California, Riverside.

Interested authors should send a one-page white paper to the guest editors by 1 July 2013 via email. Full paper submissions are due by 15 November 2013. For author guidelines and information on how to submit a manuscript electronically, visit
