This is a non-exhaustive list of topics covered by this workshop. Other topics of interest related to research and development of embedded vision systems are also welcome.

  • Architectures for image understanding, sound recognition, and other sensory modalities
  • Signal and image processing architectures
  • Configurable and FPGA-based perception architectures
  • Parallel architectures and algorithms for smart camera
  • Smart sensors and sensor fusion
  • VLSI perception systems
  • Embedded use of perception systems
  • Architectural performance evaluation
  • Distributed processing for perception systems
  • Languages, software environments and programming tools
  • Mapping of sensor fusion, image processing and computer vision algorithms onto hardware accelerators (FPGA, DSP, AI accelerators, ...)
  • Software & hardware co-design for perception systems
  • Vision and multisensor perception
  • Architectures and protocols for camera networks
  • Embedded vision programming
  • Deep learning in embedded vision

As a Collaborative Workshop, WASC has the following properties:

  • WASC is an annual event,
  • Submissions are non-reviewed abstracts, no proceedings are edited,
  • This year, WASC will be a 3-day online workshop, organized using Zoom. Participation is free but registration is required.
  • Because of an online schedule, talks are limited to 20 minutes, with 5 minutes for questions.
  • Presentations can include tutorials on tools as well as demos. To avoid Murphy’s Law (potentially causing delays in the time schedule), we ask that presenters pre-record their demo in advance. The prerecorded demos can be streamed using screen sharing.
  • One can present on-going work before results are obtained, as well as negative results.
  • The main objectives of WASC are idea sharing, consortia building, collaboration and networking.
  • WASC is linked to a journal special issue (this year: MDPI Sensors, 5-year impact factor 3.014) and participants are invited to submit to the special issue.

Important dates:

  • Submission of abstracts: by Dec 6, 2020.
    Update: late submissions are still welcome - fill in the registration form and send your paper abstract to wasc2020 `at' lists.ugent.be.
  • Registration:  by Dec 11, 2020
