WACV workshop on Real-World Surveillance: Applications and Challenges Call for Papers

WACV workshop on Real-World Surveillance: Applications and Challenges

4th Jan 2022

Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA




Computer vision methods trained on public databases demonstrate
performance drift when deployed for real-world surveillance, compared
to their initial results on the test set of those employed
databases. In this workshop, we are interested in papers reporting
their experimental results on any application of computer vision in
real-world surveillance, challenges they have faced, and their
mitigation strategy on topics like, but not limited to:

* Object detection

* Tracking

* Anomaly detection

* Scene understanding

* Super-resolution

* Multimodal surveillance


Furthermore, the workshop has a special attention to legal and ethical
issues of computer vision applications in real-world scenarios. We
therefore also welcome papers describing their methodology and
experimental results on legal matters (like GDPR) or ethical concerns
(like detecting bias towards gender, race, or other characteristics
and mitigating strategies).
