Registration: biometricsummerschool@gmail.com

What are the most up-to-date core biometric technologies developed in the field? What is the potential impact of biometrics in forensic investigation and crime prevention? How to detect impersonation attacks and disguise? What can we learn from human perception? What is a biometric recognition system?

This school follows the successful track of the International Summer Schools on Biometrics held since 2003. In this 16th edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues:

  1. How Biometrics can deal with emerging applications;
  2. How to exploit new biometric technologies in forensic and security applications;
  3. Standardization, evaluation and assessment of biometric and forensic applications;
  4. Biometrics, Forensic identification and deep learning: What is next?
  5. The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, both under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in diverse application domains.

    The lectures will be given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry.

    An advanced feature of this summer school will be some practical sessions to better understand, "hands on", the real potential of today's biometric technologies.

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.
