Towards a Multidisciplinary Framework to Include Privacy in the Design of Video Surveillance Systems

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8450)


Privacy impacts of video surveillance systems are a major concern. This paper presents our ongoing multidisciplinary approach to integrate privacy concerns in the design of video surveillance systems. The project aims at establishing a reference framework for the collection of privacy concepts and principles, the description of surveillance contexts, surveillance technologies, and accountability capabilities.
