The aim of the Workshop on Innovation in Border Control (WIBC 2013), taking place the 13-14 August 2013 in Uppsala, Sweden, is to bring together academic researchers, practitioners, and industry to discuss innovative solutions to current and future challenges in border control (including border surveillance), present the latest results of research in the field of border control, evaluate current applications, identify next steps toward bringing solutions to fruition, and disseminate information on on-going border security-related research projects and initiatives.
The focus will be on application-oriented research and technology that addresses practical operational challenges encountered by the border control community.
To that purpose, the WIBC 2013 is soliciting both research and “practice and experience” papers. Paper submissions are divided into four tracks: (1)Research Track (2) Young Researcher Track (3) Industrial Practice and Experience Track and (4) European Projects Track.
Paper submission is open until 29 April 2013 and can be done at the following page: WIBC 2013: Call for papers
The workshop should be relevant to researchers in such fields as information technologies, computer science, remote sensing, public policy and social and behavioural studies, as well as to practitioners, consultants and technology industries with interests in border security and control, law enforcement and intelligence.
