AVSS is the IEEE conference series on video and signal based surveillance. It welcomes contributions in traditional disciplines such as image processing, video processing, signal processing, audio processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision, but also gives unique emphasis to cross-disciplinary and visionary papers. AVSS targets participation from the worlds of research, industry, and relevant government agencies, offering them the opportunity to meet and foster collaboration. This conference series was started in 1998 in Genoa. Following meetings held in Kingston, UK, in 2001, Miami in 2003 and Como, Italy, in 2005 have seen increasing levels of participation and have established AVSS as a forum of reference for the field. AVSS 2006 will be held in Sydney, a beautiful and vibrant city boasting one of the most spectacular harbours in the world. The month of November typically enjoys pleasant, warm weather with average maximum temperatures around 24-25 °C.

High-quality contributions are sought on underlying theory, methods, systems, and applications. The list of topics of interest includes, but is not limited to:

Sensors and early vision Heterogeneous sensor processing
Object-background segmentation Multi-sensor data fusion
Motion detection and object tracking Sensor networks for surveillance applications
Object classification and recognition Omnidirectional vision
Gesture and action recognition Infrared imaging
Activity monitoring Chemical/biological signal processing
Interaction modelling Audio surveillance
Behaviour analysis Performance evaluation of surveillance systems
Video analysis and event recognition Perceptual interfaces
Threat assessment Visualization tools for surveillance applications
Face detection and recognition Military applications
Multi-camera calibration Civilian applications
3D vision for surveillance applications Image and video archival and retrieval
Pattern recognition for surveillance applications Digital watermarking
Statistical methods and learning Hardware and software architectures
