International Conference on Biometrics was established in 2006 as a
biennial conference by merging AVBPA
(Audio- and Video-based Person Authentication), ICBA (International
Conference on Biometric Authentication) and other biometric workshops,
and has established itself as a premier international conference in
biometrics. The first edition of ICB was held in Hong Kong, China
(2006), the second in Seoul, Korea (2007), and the third in Alghero,
Italy (2009). The fourth edition was held in conjunction with the
BTAS conference (Biometrics: Theory, Applications, Systems) in
Washington, DC, USA (October 2011) and called the International
Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB). ICB is an official conference of
the IAPR Technical Committee on Biometrics (TC4).
The 5th International Conference on Biometrics (ICB 2012) will
have a broad scope and invites papers that advance biometric technologies,
sensor design, feature extraction and matching algorithms, analysis of
security and privacy, and evaluation of social impact of biometrics
technology. Topics will include biometric systems based on fingerprint,
iris, face, voice, gait and other modalities as well as biometric fusion and
emerging biometrics based on novel sensing technologies.
All submissions must clearly articulate the novelty of the work and must report
results on publicly available datasets whenever possible. Submissions will
be carefully reviewed by a double-blind process.
