Real-World Surveillance (RWS): Applications and Challenges Call for Papers

WACV-2024 workshop on 
Real-World Surveillance (RWS): Applications and Challenges


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
-Anomaly detection
-Scene understanding
-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).

Important Dates:

Paper submission: October 25, 2023 (11:59 PM, PT)
Paper submission for challenge participants:  November 8, 2023 (11:59 PM, PT)
Decision notification: November 15, 2023 (11:59 PM, PT)
Camera-ready: November 17, 2023 (11:59 PM, PT)


The workshop includes a competition on Pedestrian Attribute
Recognition and Attribute-based Person Retrieval.
