*** 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Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished work,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 Xplore®
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
