Rules, Expectations & Security through Privacy-Enhanced Convenient Technologies
RESPECT seeks to investigate if the current and foreseeable implementation of ICTs in surveillance is indeed "in balance" and, where a lack of balance may exist or is perceived by citizens not to exist, the
project explores options for redressing the balance through a combination of Privacy-Enhancing Technologies
and operational approaches. Investigating at least five key sectors not yet tackled by other recent projects
researching surveillance (CCTV, database mining and interconnection, on-line social network analysis, RFID& geo-location/sensor devices, financial tracking), RESPECT will also carry out quantitative and qualitative
research on citizens' awareness and attitudes to surveillance. RESPECT will produce tools that would enable
policy makers to understand the socio-cultural as well as the operational and economic impact of surveillance
systems. The project will also produce operational guidelines incorporating privacy by design approaches which
would enable law enforcement agencies to deploy surveillance systems with lowest privacy risk possible and
maximum security gain to citizens.

Workshop - Privacy Enabled Surveillance? (OPENSUR-2013):
The First Policy Workshop of the RESPECT Project took place in Ljubljana on 2 and 3 July 2013. The workshop was hosted by the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
Scalable Measures for Automated Recognition Technologies
SMART project addresses the questions of automated decision taking with respect to the "smart surveillance" technologies in a society where privacy and data protection are fundamental rights. The risks and opportunities inherent to the use of smart surveillance will be evaluated and a number of technical, procedural and legal options for safeguards will be developed. SMART aims to create a toolkit which would inform system designers, policy makers and legislative bodies across Europe and beyond.

SMART Conference - Smarter Law for Smart Surveillance
The Smarter Law For Smart Surveillance conference will examine and discuss the risks and opportunities that are posed by smart surveillance. The event brings together experts from different fields and perspectives including policy-makers, law enforcement, academia and citizen groups. The conference will feature a diversity of invited speakers, the research outcomes of the SMART project and peer-reviewed studies. The keynote speakers are Jan Philipp Albrecht and Dimitrios Droutsas, Members of the European Parliament.
SMART Workshop - Smart Surveillance: Global Perspectives:
The SMART Conference will take place in Perth, Western 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 unless"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 laws 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 workshop will examine these aforementioned issues and seeks papers on the following themes relating to the use of Smart Surveillance.
De-Identification for Privacy Protection in Multimedia Content
De-identification in multimedia content can be defined as the process of concealing the identities of individuals captured in a given set of data (images, video, audio, text), for the purpose of protecting their privacy. This will provide an effective means for supporting the EU's Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC), which is concerned with the introduction of appropriate measures for the protection of personal data. The fact that a person can be identified by such features as face, voice, silhouette and gait, indicates the de-identification process as an interdisciplinary challenge, involving such scientific areas as image processing, speech analysis, video tracking and biometrics. This Action aims to facilitate coordinated interdisciplinary efforts (related to scientific, legal, ethical and societal aspects) in the introduction of person de-identification and reversible de-identification in multimedia content by networking relevant European experts and organisations.
