Special Session: Target Detection, Estimation, Classification and Tracking

Target detection, estimation, classification, and tracking are fundamental concepts in the field of signal processing and are used in various applications such as radar, sonar, computer vision, and autonomous systems. Despite decades of development, underwater acoustic processing and target sensing is still a very challenging research field due to the complex and harsh underwater environments. Due to the recent rapid developments in electronics, computing and ocean engineering, many novel concepts, models and algorithms are emerged and developed. This invited session aims to provide a platform for academic and industrial communities to report recent research and development on target sensing with theoretical and/or applied nature. Suitable topics for this special session include but are not limited to:

Related topics:
Advances in target detection
Decentralized processing and information fusion
Sonar and radar array signal processing
Spectral estimation, beamforming and localization
Matched-field processing
Uncertainty and challenges for underwater target sensing
Target feature extraction and classification
Multi-sensor based target tracking
Underwater channel modeling, estimation and prediction
Underwater wireless sensor networking
Machine learning in acoustics
Speech/audio signal processing
