1st International Workshop on Research & Innovation for Secure Societies - RISS 2018
High expansion of urban population and recent world events complemented by the alarming increase of the number of threats to infrastructure safety have mobilized Authorities to redesign societal security concepts. Law Enforcement Authorities are focusing and aiming consistently their actions at preventing crimes and protecting people, properties and critical infrastructures.
With the accelerated advances of communications and storage technologies, access to critical information acquired from various sensors and sources (e.g., CCTV cameras, satellite data, etc.) has been significantly eased. Nevertheless, manipulation and processing of such high amount of diverse data is still a steady challenge, and most of the existing solutions involve the use of human resources. Computer-assisted or automated technologies are now becoming more and more attractive to substitute expensive human resources in the existing processing and decisional systems.
In this particular context, the 1st International Workshop on Research & Innovation for Secure Societies - RISS 2018 aims to bring together researchers from academia and industry, end-users, law-enforcing agencies and citizen groups to share experiences and explore multi- and interdisciplinary areas where additional research and development are needed, identify possible collaboration and consider the societal impact of such technologies.
Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to the following topics (but not limited to):
- Surveillance systems and solutions;
- Robust computer vision algorithms (e.g., machine learning systems, object tracking, behavior analysis, action recognition, speech analysis and natural language processing);
- Information fusion from various sensors;
- Big Data for security and crime prevention;
- Social media and cyber security;
- Metadata generation, video database indexing, searching and browsing, benchmarking;
- Embedded systems and middleware;
- Forensics and crime scene reconstruction;
- Unmanned aerial, terrestrial, underwater vehicles and robots;
- Wireless communications and networks for video surveillance, video coding, compression, authentication, watermarking, location-dependent services;
- Case studies, practical systems and testbeds;
- Data protection, privacy protection, civil liberties and social exclusion issues.
To submit your contribution, please follow the conference instructions. In the submission system select as conference track the Workshop: Research & Innovation for Secure Societies (WkshSecureSoc).
