Biometrics provides efficient and reliable solutions to recognize individuals. With increasing number of identity theft and miss-use incidents we do observe a significant fraud in e-commerce and thus growing interests on trustworthiness of person authentication. Nowadays we find biometric applications in areas like border control, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, e-health etc. Large-scale applications such as the European Union SmartBorder Concept, the Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy and also reliability, interoperability, scalability and usability. Many of these are joint requirements also for forensic applications.

Multimodal biometrics combined with fusion techniques can improve recognition performance. Efficient searching or indexing methods can accelerate identification efficiency. Additionally, quality of captured biometric samples can strongly influence the performance. Moreover, mobile biometrics is an emerging area and biometrics based smartphones can support deployment and acceptance of biometric systems.

However, concerns about security and privacy cannot be neglected. The relevant techniques in the area of presentation attack detection (liveness detection) and template protection are about to supplement biometric systems, in order to improve fake resistance, prevent potential attacks such as cross matching, identity theft etc.

The BIOSIG 2019 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications.

[Banner] EAB-RPC 2019 Conference Report The 6th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference will take place at the premises of Fraunhofer IGD in Darmstadt, Germany from 16 to 18 September 2019. The conference is organized by the European Association on Biometrics (EAB) in cooperation with the Joint Research Center (DG JRC) of the European Commission, through its Cyber and Digital Citizens’ security Unit. The EAB-RPC 2019 will be co-located with the EAB Biometrics Research and Industry Awards and the IEEE BIOSIG Conference, later that same week.

The conference is currently the largest event on research funded by the European Union in the area of Biometrics and Identity Management. Over the previous four successful editions, EAB-RPC has become the main forum in Europe where attendees can simultaneously: promote research carried out in biometrics, forge new links and networks, and identify the appropriate partners for possible future project applications. Last year’s edition welcomed over 100 participants from academia, industry and public institutions.

This year’s edition will include the participation of numerous EU-funded research projects, such as: RHUMBO, TReSPAsS (ITN), PriMa, PROTECT, BODEGA, LIGHTest, SMILE, FOLDOUT, TRESSPASS (project), SWAN, PYCSEL, Stellar i-ris, QUARDCARD, SpeechXRays, SOTAMD, AMBER, H-Unique, PERSONA, D4FLY, RESPECT. Researchers from all over Europe will present the advances achieved in these projects, provide updates on how results from finished projects are being currently used to improve biometric technology and eventually give an insight into the future of biometric research.

In addition to the research community the conference will offer a more holistic and comprehensive perspective of the status of biometric and identity management technology in Europe with the participation of the following stakeholders:

  • End-users, represented by FRONTEX (border control), ENFSI (forensics)
  • Policy makers, represented by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB)
  • Managers of large IT-systems, represented by the European Agency eu-LISA in charge of deploying and running European systems such as SIS-II or Eurodac
  • Industrial partners are also welcome to join in order to give their point of view and present the challenges that they face in the development of real-world solutions

The conference will foster discussion among participants and will include a round-table where all the above communities of practice will put forward their ideas and needs, present the challenges that they face in their daily work and propose solutions.

As such, in addition to provide the latest updates on biometric research carried out in Europe, one of the main objectives of the conference is to bring together all stakeholders to try to find common approaches and strategies to give a coordinated response to the key needs identified by the Union in order to efficiently protect the freedom and security of EU citizens. All the projects in the conference are, in fact, engaged in one of the objectives driving the Union’s policy development in order to reach a more secure society (EC COM/2011/809 final – 2011/0401 (COD)):

  • Fight against crime and terrorism
  • Strengthen security through border management
  • Provide cyber security
  • Increase Europe's resilience to crises and disasters
  • Ensure privacy and freedom including the Internet and enhance the societal dimension of security
  • Enhance standardization and interoperability of systems
