The First VideoSense Summer School on Multi-modal Data Analytics, called MediaSense 2012, took place in Dublin on 21-22 May 2012. 
It included the following lectures:

1. “The multiple faces of privacy and data protection. Problems and possibilities”
Speaker: Prof. Guido Van Steendam  (University of Leuven, Belgium)
2. “Integrated Context-aware Tools and Architecture for Delivering and Evaluation of Privacy-Preserving Video-Analytics”
Speaker: Prof. Atta Badii  (University of Reading, UK)
3. “TRECVid: Over a Decade of Benchmarking Content-Based Video”
Speaker: Prof. Alan Smeaton  (Dublin City University, Ireland)
4. “Face Recognition”
Speaker: Prof. Jean-Luc Dugelay  (EURECOM, France)
5. “Privacy protection of visual information”
Speaker: Prof. Ebrahimi Touradj  (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Switzerland)
6. “Tracking and Recognition of Body and Face Gestures”
Speaker: Dr. Ioannis Patras  (Queen Mary University London (QMUL), UK)
7. “Audio-driven multimedia content analysis”
Speaker: Dr. Slim Essid  (Télécom ParisTech, France)


Around 25 researchers attended the summer school, which was co-organised 3DLife project and included a poster session at the WIAMIS 2012, where VideoSense was presented.

The VideoSense project will host a special session at the IEEE MMSP 2012 conference. MMSP 2012 is the 14th international workshop on multimedia signal processing. The workshop is organised by the Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The focus theme for this workshop is media-sharing social networks. MMSP 2012 aims to bring researchers from different areas (signal processing, information management, computer sciences, and psycho-sociology) together to explore the impact of multimodal signal and information processing for the emerging research field of media-sharing social networks, and ultimately to design multimedia systems with more efficient, secure, context-aware, and personalised services.

A special session will consist of 4 invited papers, and each paper will have an associated oral presentation of 20 minutes. The VideoSense special session will open up new perspectives on ways and means to promote privacy-respecting compliance using image processing and pattern recognition algorithms and techniques that enhance the privacy protection as an inherent property of the Video Content Analysis process. The aim is to provide insights into the problems of automatic decision making in privacy-aware systems by examining the achievable accuracy of different State-of-the-Art signal processing and pattern recognition techniques and presenting new approaches to enhance the privacy protection capability of such systems. Accordingly the proposed workshop will also present new image processing and computer vision algorithms as well as frameworks and architectures to be used in privacy-respecting video-analytics solutions.
