International Workshop on Multi-Sensor Systems and Networks
for Fire Detection and Management
8-9 November 2012, Antalya, Turkey
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from all over the world, who deal with fire detection and management using multi-media and multi-sensor devices and networks. Furthermore, outcome of the research that was carried out in European Community Funded Project FIRESENSE (Fire Detection and Management through a Multi-Sensor Network for the Protection of Cultural Heritage Areas from the Risk of Fire and Extreme Weather Conditions, FP7-ENV-2009-1244088-FIRESENSE, www.firesense.eu) will be presented.
Paper submissions should be related but not limited to any of the following topics:
– Fire detection technologies – Video-based flame and smoke algorithms – IR-based fire detection systems and algorithms – Multispectral imaging forfire detection – Data fusion; Fire knowledge and semantics extraction – Fire simulation; Fire propagation estimation – Vegetation classification; Fuel models and maps – Remote sensing techniques for monitoring land cover – Data and image mining; Pattern mining – Pattern recognition; Pattern and image classification – Systems for protecting cultural heritage sites from wildfires and extreme weather conditions – Disaster management; Emergency management, Early warning systems – Databases; Multimedia databases; Information retrieval; Stream processing; Querying – Real-Time Event Learning and Detection – Fire and disaster detection and monitoring using wireless sensor networks – Sensor network routing algorithms; Sleep scheduling algorithms – Wireless technologies for emergency and fire – Network architectures and protocols for fire and emergency – Sensor network security and fault tolerance – WiFi and Zigbee wireless technologies; mesh networks – Energy issues in sensor and wireless networks – Sensory information processing and signal processing for fire and other events – Sensor prototypes, test-beds and field experiments
