Security and Surveillance
Security and surveillance systems are now embedded in most aspects of society. Rapid technological advances in fields such as machine vision and artificial intelligence, together with ever increasing data availability, are expected to deliver a step-change in the capability of said systems in the near future. This symposium will explore new approaches to security and surveillance, as well as their impact on society.

Call for Papers
The aim of this one day workshop is to provide a snapshot of current and recent research into the application of imaging technologies to the challenges of surveillance and security. In spite of the pervasive deployment of imaging technologies (e.g. CCTV camera networks, X-ray scanners) the challenge of developing reliable and robust algorithms is yet to be fully met. We welcome contributions to this workshop in the form of oral presentations, posters or demos. Suggested topics across all imaging modalities include:
- People detection
- Remote surveillance
- Face recognition
- People identification
- Border security
- Traffic surveillance
- Recognising activities and behaviours
This list is far from exhaustive and we are interested to see presentations or posters related to the wider theme of surveillance for security purposes.
Call for Participation:
