Li and Bhanu capture Best Paper Award

Professor Bhanu and Yiming Li(r.) and Electrical Engineering Professor Bir Bhanu (l.) won the Best Paper Award at the Second ACM/IEEE International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC). The conference took place Sept. 7-11 at Stanford University. The paper was chosen from a field of 61.

Papers presented at the conference described original research in the areas of multi-camera networks and distributed processing of visual data. Li and Bhanu’s paper, titled “Utility-Based Dynamic Camera Assignment and Hand-off in a Video Network,” proposes an approach for multi-camera, multi-person seamless tracking that allows camera assignment and hand-off to other cameras as the subject goes out of the frame that is based on user-supplied criteria. Their approach is based on the application of game theory to camera assignment problems.

The Association of Computing Machinery/Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers ICDSC conference provides a forum for exchange of recent results on distributed cameras, embedded vision, and their many potential application areas. The first conference was held last year in Vienna, Austria.

Bhanu is Director of the Center for Research in Intelligent Systems (CRIS) and also Director of the Visualization and Intelligent Systems Laboratory (VISLab) where Li is a graduate student working toward her Ph.D.

Bhanu will be one of two keynote speakers at the 2009 World Congress on Computer Science and Information Engineering (CSIE 2009) to be held March 31-April 2 in Los Angeles. The Congress is a global forum for researchers and engineers to present and discuss recent advances and new techniques in computer science and information engineering.
