Surveillance can function both as a deterrent to help prevent crime, as well as an investigative tool to aid us in identifying the actors of incidents. Surveillance systems can record multimodal evidences, help carry out intelligent analytics to obtain multi-perspective understanding and alert security personnel and people about security breaches, malicious events and hazardous situations. These security related events can be captured in the content of surveillance data such as audio and video as a semantic unit, which bridges the gap between physical world and semantic cyberspace. If a picture is more than a thousand words, an event is worth thousands of pictures. Thus, multimodal surveillance data may convey invaluable security information. Without proper automated means, it is extremely hard to process this huge volume of surveillance data for detecting interesting events. In this workshop, we focus on multimedia surveillance systems from the experiential point of view. The semantics in multimodal multimedia data are particularly emphasized. The workshop seeks high-quality papers, which utilize the knowledge from machine vision, machine learning, pattern recognition, data mining, and artificial intelligence to process events in surveillance. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Multimedia Event Capturing in Surveillance Environment

• Multimedia Events Search and Retrieval in Surveillance Systems

• Multimedia Events Mining and Reasoning for Surveillance

• Multimedia Events Management and Exploration in Surveillance Systems

• Multimedia Events Presentation in Surveillance Systems

• Life Cycle of Multimedia Events in Surveillance Systems

• Applications of Event Web in Multimedia Surveillance Systems

• FPGA, Multicore Programming, GPUs for Multimedia Surveillance Systems

• Distributed Computing in Multimedia Surveillance Systems

• Cloud Computing in Multimedia Surveillance Systems

• Design of Multimedia Surveillance Systems

Important Dates:
•Full paper submission: 1st May 2011
