PRELUDE 2022: PeRvasive sEnsing and muLtimedia UnDErstanding 

Co-located with:

SITIS 2022 - The 16th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet based Systems

19-21 October 2022 - Dijon, France


Advances in sensing and computing are currently impacting several
sectors ranging from healthcare to cultural heritage, from smart
cities to Industry 4.0. Information collected by sensors is propagated
through internet-based systems and processed through the network's
nodes. Mobile, edge and fog computing approaches have pushed advanced
"smart" processing to the far edges of the network, while AI as a
Service (AIaaS) paradigms abstract and virtualise intelligent services
for deployment on the cloud. Multimedia information, including images,
video streams, acoustic data and temporal series, are a relevant part
of the data to be processed, analysed and understood for fully taking
advantage of sensing resources.

This workshop aims to shorten the gap between edge-based and
cloud-based approaches for multimedia understanding by addressing the
challenges and opportunities of the combined approach. Relevance will
be given to transversal issues, such as those related to the privacy
and security of such hybrid strategies, as well as to the quest for
optimal and greener configuration of AI services towards sustainable
and ethical use of computing resources. The co-existence of
intelligent services distributed in a computational continuum made of
heterogeneous nodes opens the possibilities of performing learning,
including reinforcement learning, in such scenarios while coping with
possible data shortages or faults of some nodes.

Contributions addressing the above issues from a theoretical or
simulation perspective are sought, while demonstrations in applicative
scenarios will also be welcome.



Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

*     Embedded systems and smart camera networks

*     Mobile and pervasive computing

*     Artificial intelligence in resource-constrained environments and on-device machine learning;

*     Learning in multi-tier networked ecosystems

*     Perception, sensing, and smart environment monitoring;

*     Sensor fusion for environment perception;

*     Video data representation, summarization, and visualization.

*     Multi-view computer vision

*     Learning in scarce data scenarios

*     Reinforcement learning

*     Fault-tolerant decision making

*     Privacy and security aspects

*     Explainability, trustworthiness and sustainability of pervasive AI paradigms

*     Applications in

o    Industry, smart cities and smart mobility

o    Cultural heritage and tourism

o    Healthcare


Important dates

Submission deadline: July 15, 2022

Acceptance/Reject notification: September 9, 2022

Camera-ready: September 16, 2022

Author Registration: September 16, 2022


Each submission should be at most 8 pages in total, including
bibliography and well-marked appendices and must follow the IEEE
double columns publication format available at:

*       Manuscript templates for IEEE conference proceedings

Paper submission will only be online via: 

Easy Chair.

All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at
least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make
final paper selections.


All the papers accepted for the workshop will be included in the
conference proceedings. The proceedings will be published by IEEE
Computer Society and referenced in IEEE Xplore Digital Library,
Scopus, DBLP and major indexes.


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
workshop. The workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A
single registration for the workshop or the conference allows
attending both events.
