RISS 2022 4th International Workshop on Research & Innovation for Secure Societies @ 14th International Conference on Communications – COMM 2022 Bucharest, Romania, 16-18 June 2022 https://www.comms.ro/RISS2022/ https://www.comms.ro/paper-submission.html
*** Call for papers *** * Paper submission due: March 14, 2022 * Acceptance notification: April 29, 2022 * Camera-ready papers due: May 14, 2022 * Workshop @ COMM 2022: June 16-18 (TBD), 2022
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., land cameras, satellite data, drones, personal devices, has been significantly eased. Manipulation and processing of such a high amount of diverse data is still a steady challenge, and most of the existing solutions involve the use of human resources. However, threats are now hybrid and at a very large scale, requiring very different security solutions which can make use of interdisciplinary approaches. In this context, computer-assisted or automated technologies are now becoming more and more attractive to substitute expensive human resources in the decision systems.
RISS 2022 focuses on discussing solutions provided by Intelligent Systems to the challenges. It aims to bring together researchers from academia and industry, end-users, law-enforcing agencies, and citizen groups to share experiences and explore multi- and inter-disciplinary 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Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work, reporting on novel and significant research contributions, on-going research projects, experimental results and recent developments related to Intelligent Techniques for Secure Societies on the following topics (but not limited to): - Computer vision (e.g., crowd monitoring, scene understanding) - Multimedia information retrieval (e.g., indexing, searching, and browsing, Big Data) - Information fusion from various sensors (e.g., visual, infrared, depth, sound) - Machine learning (e.g., very large-scale deep learning, neural networks) - Embedded systems, IoT, and low energy footprint computing - Social media, cybercrimes, and fake news - Surveillance systems and interactive solutions - Forensics and crime scene reconstruction - Unmanned aerial, terrestrial, underwater vehicles, and robots - Biometric systems and algorithms (e.g., body, fingerprint, gesture, voice recognition) - Case studies, practical systems, and testbeds - Ethics, data protection, privacy protection, civil liberties, and social exclusion issues - Benchmarking, evaluation, and data sets
*** Submission guidelines *** Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished technical papers for presentation in the conference sections and for publication in the COMM2022 Conference Proceedings. Since 2010, the papers presented at the conference have been published in IEEEXplore and ISI database. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE XploreŽ Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference. To submit your contribution, please adhere strictly to the conference guidelines available here https://www.comms.ro/paper-submission.html.
