Crime science focuses on the study of crime and the factors that cause it, not criminals or criminal behaviour. The evolving discipline of crime science will help us design crime prevention into our environments in order to significantly reduce drivers for crime. We are in an ICT enabled revolution that can help reduce crime by designing systems that discourage criminal behaviours intelligently and discretely. This session will focus on application of information sciences and ubiquitous sensing to crime reduction. Topics of interest include Geographical Information Systems; surveillance, detection, and identification; massive data extraction; and the integration of social connectivity with mobile sensing. A more familiar area of crime science is on detection and another area of interest is advanced forensics - in particular detecting signatures of individuals from standoff detection of non-invasive signatures (physical features, gait, voice, etc.), new technologies for microscopic forensics, emerging timeline analysis opportunities via social media and mobile technologies, and policy issues from opportunistic tracking of individuals.
