Reliable Biometrics (BIORELIABILITY 2015)


Biometrics plays a significant role in human identity recognition. Vast worldwide deployments of biometrics, such as e-passport systems or issuing personal identification numbers for a population of India (AADHAAR), bring new lessons learned as well as new challenges related to biometric reliability. This workshop intends to collect recent high quality international research results contributing to increase in reliability of biometric methods and systems. In particular, it should serve as a platform for exchanging the scientific ideas related to countermeasures against spoofing, immunity of biometrics to biological factors such as aging or health conditions, as well as methods mitigating imperfect interaction of humans with the machines.

Topics of interests

The following topics are considered to be in line with the special session, but are not limited to:

  • accuracy of physical and behavioral biometric modalities (face, fingerprints, iris, vein, handwritten signatures, voice, emerging techniques such as use of electroencephalograms, analysis of gait, etc.)
  • security of biometrics, in particular techniques recognizing counterfeits (presentation attack detection – PAD) and protecting the biometric data (combining biometrics with steganography/watermarking or cryptography)
  • biological factors in biometrics, in particular influence of biometric data aging and conditions on the biometric performance,
  • usability of biometrics, specifically related to interaction of humans with biometric systems (interfaces, psychological aspects of interaction).

Information for authors

The submitted papers should present results of the original and unpublished research. The papers will be reviewed by the CYBCONF 2015 International Program Committee. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and will be included in the conference proceedings. Papers must be prepared using IEEE templates for conference proceedings. All papers must be submitted electronically via conference submission system.
