The 8th Biennial Workshop on DSP for In-Vehicle and Mobile Systems
Cutting Edge of Data Analytics for Advanced Human-Vehicular Systems

Since the inception of the first Biennial Workshop on DSP for In-Vehicle and Mobile Systems in Nagoya 2003, progress based on data analytics have completely changed the technologies of Human-Vehicle systems. At that time in 2003, the ability to achieve recognition of distant speech voice commands, deep learning for object detection, as well as fully autonomous driving had not been regarded as an industrial reality for almost 10 years later. Now, with rapid advancements by diverse researchers worldwide, these domains have working realizations, and so the next main challenge is the integration of them towards more human friendly and society friendly automated systems. In this next workshop to take place in Nagoya in 2018, we will re-focus on the technologies of data analytics in speech/audio, computer vision and intelligent vehicle advancements under the perspectives of human harmonizing systems. The workshop organization will include inviting three distinctive keynote speakers from speech, vision and vehicle areas. We also invite stakeholders from industry, government for an open discussion/engaging panel discussion with researchers on the future deployment of autonomous and intelligent systems. As in previous workshops, extended articles in the selected presentations will be included in the next volume of the De Gruyter Book series "DSP, human-to-vehicle interfaces, driver behavior, and safety." The Organizing Committee looks forward to seeing you in Nagoya, and contributing your thoughts and expertise as signal processing research advances for next generation vehicle/driver systems.
