RISS 2020
3rd International Workshop on Research & Innovation for Secure Societies
@ 25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition - ICPR
Milan, Italy, 11 January, 2021

*Please note that given the COVID-19 situation in Italy and all over
the globe, the ICPR2020 Chairs have decided to shift the Conference
schedule to 10-15 January 2021*

*** Call for papers ***
* Paper submission due: October 10th, 2020
* Acceptance notification: November 10th, 2020
* Workshop @ ICPR 2020: January 11th, 2021

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 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 at a very large scale, requiring
very different security solutions which are able to 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 2020 focuses on discussing solutions provided by Artificial
Intelligence (AI) systems to the aforementioned 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Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work,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 AI 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 ***
RISS 2020 follows a single-blind review process, therefore authors are
required to include their names and affiliations in their papers. All
papers will be peer reviewed single-blind. Authors are requested to
adhere to the IAPR Ethical Requirements when submitting their
contributions. Workshop proceedings will be published with Springer
and submissions should be formatted using the provided Springer
templates. Accepted paper length is from 12 to 15 pages. To submit
your contribution, follow the link
