Smart Surveillance: Global Perspectives

Smart Surveillance: Global Perspectives in Perth, Australia

Automated recognition of individuals and/or pre- determined traits or risk factors/criteria lies at the basis of smart surveillance systems. Yet new EU regulations and specifically those on information sharing between police and security forces explicitly prohibit automated decision-taking regarding individuals "authorised by a law which also lays down measures to safeguard the data subject's legitimate interests" (Art 7, CFD 2008/977/JHA). globally these issues are manifest.

Globally which law are applicable in this context? What measures are envisioned? What else should the law contain? Can the laws be technology-neutral but sector specific, thus permitting a measured approach to the appropriateness of smart surveillance technologies in key security applications? Can they be extended to all security applications of smart surveillance, even those not covered by existing?

This conference will examine these aforementioned issues and seeks papers on the following themes relating to the use of Smart Surveillance:

• Smart surveillance in law enforcement

• Smart surveillance in cyberspace

• Smart surveillance in the daily environment/day-to-day life

• Smart surveillance in Counter-terrorism

Call for Papers

All submitted paper shall be subjected to double blind peer review.
