CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE PASSIVE 08
Toulon - Var - France
Passive remote sensing techniques
have a meaningful and challenging role in addressing the measurement
needs of several research and operational programs
(defense purposes, environmental monitoring).
The need to rapidly respond to these new surveillance and security
challenges requires advanced software architectures allowing easier
cost-effective enhancements of existing software applications.
The workshop will be concerned by all passive systems (underwater,
surface and near-surface systems) from signal interpretation to
processing algorithms to system conception. Thus, the purpose of the
workshop is to provide a forum to identify the long term role of
passive remote sensing systems and the long term sensing technology
advances required to enhance the performances of those passive systems
deemed most promising for future and operational use.
Particular themes of the conference include, but are not restricted to:
- Processing algorithms (detection, identification, localization and tracking),
- Marine mammal study,
- Non-cooperative target recognition; Computer-aided
- Tracking methods and physics-based tracking algorithm,
- Multi-sensor, multi-target data association and fusion,
- System integration.
The deadline for submission is May 15, 2008.
The workshop will provide some authors of papers of relevance quality
for their contribution to passive systems the opportunity to further
shape their work for submission to a special issue of the IEEE Journal
of Oceanic Engineering (see http://www.oceanicengineering.org/ ).
