Call for Book Chapters

Advances in Biometrics for Secure Human Authentication and Recognition

To be published by CRC Press (Taylor and Francis) (Confirmed)

Volume Editors:

Dakshina Ranjan Kisku, Asansol Engineering College, India
Phalguni Gupta, IIT Kanpur, India
Jamuna Kanta Sing, Jadavpur University, India

Aims and Objectives:

This book will showcase the latest technologies and algorithms which have been used since the last two decades for human authentication and recognition. Recent developments made in pattern classification and image processing techniques motivate the researchers and practitioners to design cutting-edge biometric technologies and gain competitive advantages over conventional security applications by applying innovative thoughts and algorithms for real life authentication problems. The need of biometrics systems increasing tremendously in day to day activities such as airport security, medical diagnostics, ATM security, parenthood determination, border security control, electronic data security, E-commerce, online banking transactions, cellular phones, national ID card, driving license, corpse identification, criminal investigation, etc. The novel methods of biometric systems are evolving rapidly and boosting the research areas in new directions. The book will provide up-to-date reviews of intelligence techniques and theories used in biometric technologies for human authentication and identification. In particular, the comprehensive references of different biometric works and implementations will be found to be invaluable collections for biometric developers and organizations. The primary audience for the book includes researchers, scholars, graduate students, engineers, practitioners and developers who are interested in biometric research and security related issues. The book will be organized in self-contained chapters to provide readers great readability and flexibility.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

--Face, fingerprint, iris, palm, hand geometry, ear, gait, retina, DNA, footprint, dental biometrics, etc.
--Feature extraction, pattern classification, matching techniques for biometrics algorithms
--Biometrics systems for border control security
--Biometrics systems for verification and identification
--Database indexing techniques for biometrics systems
--Protocols, cryptography, biometric standards for biometrics systems
--Security and reliability assessment for biometrics systems
--Online and offline biometric systems
--Performance assessment and resource computation in biometrics systems
--Multi-classifiers fusion and score weighting schemes in biometrics
--Machine vision and soft computing techniques in biometrics fusion
--Match score level, feature level, rank level, sensor level fusions for biometrics systems
--Feature quality improvements, feature update, feature matching in biometrics
--Adaptive biometric systems
--Biometrics template security
--Biometrics in affective computing
--Emotion Recognition
