The ADVISE consortium is glad to announce the joint event:

ADVISE Liaison Workshop on Social Acceptability of Smart Surveillance: what? And how?

Organized jointly with

VideoSense 2014 Winter School on Multimodal and Privacy–‐Respecting Video Analytics

The event will be held on the 24th 25th and 26th November 2014 at the Engineering Ingengeria Informatica’s premises at Pont Saint Martin, Valle d’Aosta, Italy (

This workshop will gather representatives from both types of activity, supported by law enforcement agencies, with a view to a multi-sided debate about possible and desirable shape of surveillance solutions deployed in the European society. In particular, the workshop will debate:

  • What are the respective needs and requirements of technologically- and socially-oriented research, and of public authorities?
  • How to arrange a smooth, efficient and fruitful collaboration between these three types of stakeholders?

VideoSense Winter School 2014 aims at bringing together young researchers working in the field of multimodal and privacy-respecting video analytics, offering:

  • lectures delivered by experts from academy and industry providing a clear and in-depth summary of state-of-the-art research in the field
  • enjoyable and stimulating environment in which participants will benefit not only from the formal and practical sessions but also from informal and social interactions with established researchers and the other participants to the Winter School.
