Call for Papers Sixth International Conference on Imaging for Crime Detection and Prevention

14th January 2015

IET’s Vision and Imaging Network 15-17 July 2015, Queen Mary University London, UK

Computer-based technologies are increasingly becoming researched in what is now known as video analytics, propelled by advances in processing power, embedded computing, IP-networking technologies, volume storage, cheap cameras, etc. The realisation of such advances into working systems can have a major impact on society but also on individual liberty. This conference aims to bring together researchers, industry, end-users, law-enforcing agencies and citizens groups to share experiences and explore areas where additional research and development are needed, identify possible collaboration and consider the societal impact of such technologies. Full papers are invited on all aspects of Imaging Surveillance technologies, from academia, industry, NGOs and others, to be selected for oral presentations or posters through a peer-review system (see also: An indicative, not exclusive, list of relevant topics is:
  • Surveillance Systems and solutions (system architecture aspects, operational procedures, usability, scalability)
  • Multi-camera systems
  • Information fusion (e.g. from visible and infrared cameras, microphone arrays. etc.)
  • Learning systems, Cognitive Systems Engineering and video mining
  • Robust computer vision algorithms (24/7 operation under variable conditions, object tracking, multi-camera algorithms, behaviour analysis and learning, scene segmentation)
  • Human Machine Interfaces, Human Systems Engineering and Human Factors
  • Wireless communications and networks for video surveillance, video coding, compression, authentication, watermarking, location-dependent services
  • Metadata generation, video database indexing, searching and browsing
  • Embedded systems, surveillance middleware
  • Gesture and posture analysis and recognition
  • Biometrics (including face recognition)
  • Forensics and crime scene reconstruction
  • X-Ray and Terahertz scanning
  • Case studies, practical systems and testbeds
  • Data protection, civil liberties and social exclusion issues
Accepted papers will be published on the IET’s Digital Library, indexed by Inspec, only if at least one author registers and presents the work. Authors of exceptional papers will be invited to submit extended versions to be considered for publication in the IET Computer Vision Journal. There are delegate fee discounts for authors, students and members of the IET and sponsoring organisations.
