WAMWB 2023 : Workshop on Advances of Mobile and Wearable Biometrics @ MobileHCI'23
Call For Papers
The Workshop on Advances of Mobile and Wearable Biometrics (WAMWB2023) will be held within the ACM International Conference on Mobile Human-Computer Interfaces (MobileHCI), 2023. The workshop will allow both in person and online participation and it will take place on September 26, 2023, in Athens, Greece.
*** Short Description ***
The rapid digitalization of society, together with the pervasiveness of mobile and wearable devices, is creating unprecedented Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) scenarios. Mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables have high computing and connectivity capabilities, and they are provided with several sensors that are able to acquire a vast amount of biometric information, for purposes such as security (user recognition systems), health and fitness (activity trackers), user profiling (social media and e-commerce), etc. The availability of such a massive amount of information, and the widespread use of mobile and wearable biometric systems have raised concerns among the technical people as well as the general public regarding aspects such as the performance, reliability, protection of privacy, bias, misuse, regulations, and their impact on society.
In light of the above, it is therefore of paramount importance to design feasible and effective solutions, compliant with new specifications accounting for social good. The workshop will highlight the recent developments in the evolving areas of mobile and wearable biometric systems in relation to such concerns.
*** Topics of Interest ***
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Physiological biometrics (fingerprint, face, iris, vein, etc.);
- Behavioral biometrics (signature, keystroke, gait, etc.);
- Cognitive biometrics (ECG, PPG, EDA, EEG, etc.);
- Attacks at biometric systems;
- Biometric template protection schemes;
- Privacy preserving solutions;
- Multibiometric recognition systems;
- Machine learning with limited computational resources;
- Usability, interfaces, and human factors;
- Database collection;
- Ethical, legal and psychological perspectives.
*** Submission Formats ***
We invite submissions in three formats:
1. Position papers / extended abstracts: 2 pages (excluding references). They should describe new, previously, or concurrently published research or work-in-progress
2. Journal paper presentations. They should be in the format of the full paper or an extended abstract (2 pages, excluding references).
3. Full length papers: 4-8 pages (excluding references). They should describe new work that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or submitted for review at another venue during our review period.
