CVPR Workshop on Media Forensics

July 26th, 2017 @ Honolulu, Hawaii

Call for Participation

This workshop will focus on the role of computer vision and pattern recognition in forensic applications, with special emphasis on media forensics. There are a number of areas in the computer vision and pattern recognition field that can contribute to the forensics community. These include algorithms for automated analysis of forensics, tools to assist forensic examiners, and methodologies for assessing the accuracy of tools and forensic examiners. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Media forensics
    • detection of forged and manipulated images, documents and video,
    • discrimination between computer graphics and photographic images,
    • reconstruction of media genealogy;
  • Analysis and recognition of
    • blood splatters,
    • bite marks,
    • tool marks;
  • Analysis and recognition of 2D and 3D patterns
    • on bullets and their casings,
    • shoe and tire impressions;
  • 3D reconstruction of crime scenes,
The workshop will allow for a broad discussion of forensic-related issues across these topics.
