Call for Papers
The Biometrics Symposium provides a forum for the dissemination and exchange of basic and applied scholarly research leading to applications of biometrics to human identification and verification. The intent of the Symposium is to stimulate and foster research in biometrics and build a bridge between basic research and operational realization of biometrics with respect to:
* Operationally Relevant Technologies (e.g., face, fingerprint, iris, voice, gait, hand/palm, other novel biometrics, multibiometrics, protecting biometric databases, etc.)
* Measures of Effectiveness (e.g., performance analysis/prediction, testing techniques, statistical basis, individuality, etc.)
* Countermeasures and Spoofing (e.g., liveness detection, biometric encryption, template security, cancellable biometrics, etc.)
* Societal and Political Implications (e.g., privacy and civil liberties, societal perceptions, data sensitivity, international perceptions, etc.)
The objective of the Symposium is to bring together researchers working in the convergence of disciplines defining biometric research, and to encourage the growth of the biometric research culture conducive to long-range research supporting the field.
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers reflecting original, unpublished work in the field. Papers should not exceed 6 pages including results, figures and references. LATeX and WORD templates are available below. All submissions will be subjected to a double-blind review procedure. The CD-ROM proceedings of accepted papers will be made available at the symposium. Accepted papers will be uploaded into IEEE Xplore.
May 15, 2006: Submission of a 6-page paper strictly adhering to format and content guidelines.
July 15, 2006: Notification of acceptance for oral or poster presentation.
August 1, 2006: Submission of final paper along with personal information.

Final Manuscript Submission:
Please follow the instructions given below to prepare your final submission package:
Prepare the final version of your paper taking into account reviewer feedback and comments. The final version must conform to the format specified and be Xplore compatible. Use the PDF eXpress facility described below to make it Xplore compatible. The paper should be in the .pdf format.
- Poster:- Fill out the biography [Biography.doc] of the primary researcher who will be presenting the poster. The biography must be in the .doc format.
- Oral:- Fill out the biography [Biography.doc] of the speaker who will be presenting the work and the NIST Disclaimer form [NIST_Disclaimer.doc]. Both forms must be in the .doc format.
- ZIP file:
Place the paper (.pdf), presenter's biography (.doc) and a photo of the presenter (good resolution .jpeg - photo is optional, not required) in a zip file titled PaperNumber_PresenterLastName.zip. Oral presenters must include the NIST Disclaimer form (.doc) also in the ZIP file.
Please upload this zip file at the EDAS website before August 1, 2006.
