Call for Papers
The Biometrics Symposium provides an international 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 deployment of biometric systems with respect to:
* Operationally Relevant Technologies (e.g., face, fingerprint, iris, voice, gait, hand/palm, other novel biometrics, multibiometrics, protecting biometric databases)
* Measures of Effectiveness (e.g., performance analysis/prediction, testing techniques, statistical basis, individuality, interoperability)
* Countermeasures and Spoofing (e.g., liveness detection, biometric encryption, template security, cancellable biometrics)
* Societal and Political Implications (e.g., privacy and civil liberties, societal perceptions, data sensitivity, international perceptions)
The objective of the Symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in the convergence of disciplines defining biometric research, and to encourage the growth of 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Prospective authors are invited to submit papers reflecting original, unpublished work in the field.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 will be made available at this website. 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. Symposium papers will be archived and available through IEEE Xplore. Best paper awards will be given to outstanding contributions and recognized as such at the Symposium. Awards are sponsored by Lockheed - Martin Corporation.
The authors of accepted papers who will be presenting their work will receive a discounted registration rate. Student attendees will also receive a discounted registration rate.
April 22 2007: Submission of a 6-page paper strictly adhering to format and content guidelines.
June 30, 2007: Notification of acceptance for oral or poster presentation.
August 1, 2007: Submission of final paper along with personal information.
