SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE
are now more and more integrated in complex systems and information systems.
This trend aims at implementing more coherent, efficient, and reactive
processes. Nevertheless, their development involves suitable evolutions
in signal and image processing concepts. On the one hand, disparate data
have to be efficiently managed from the observation to the decision level,
taking into account all their specificities. On the other hand, information
has to be obtained through a dynamical process of resource management,
such that the whole system provides the best fitting with needs, environment
and context. Obviously system design and control are major problems in
term of autonomy of sensors and interactions between them, and they need
individual and collective behavior optimization.
The purpose of the Symposium is to built a prospective view of this particularly
large but emergent thematic, considering methodological aspects as well
as application potential.
