A new workshop in Hawaii will examine the future of computer vision (real-time video and/or image analysis), which is rapidly becoming an area of concern for privacy and security advocates.

The First International Workshop on The Bright and Dark Sides of Computer Vision: Challenges and Opportunities for Privacy and Security is being held in conjunction with the 2017 IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition on July 21. The workshop is seeking papers and abstracts on:

– Computer vision-based security and privacy attacks,
– Biometric spoofing, defenses and liveness detection,
– Impact of ubiquitous cameras on society,
– Captchas and other visual Turing tests for online security,
– Privacy of visual data,
– Privacy-preserving visual features and representations,
– Reversibility of image transformations,
– Secure/encrypted computer vision and image processing,
– Wearable camera privacy,
– Attacks against computer vision systems,
– Copyright violation detection,
– Counterfeit and forgery detection,
– Privacy implications of large-scale visual social media,
– Other relevant topics.

The first submission deadline is April 7, 2017.
