Call For Papers

International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group
Sept 05.-06., 2013, Darmstadt, Germany
Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI)
in cooperation with:
- Competence Center for Applied Security Technology (CAST)
- German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI)
- European Association for Biometrics (EAB)
- Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC)
- Tele-TrusT-Association
- Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory (NBL)
- Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED)
- Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD

The conference will be technically co-sponsored by IEEE and papers will be added to IEEE Xplore.

Biometrics provides efficient and reliable solutions to recog-nize individuals. Growing interests on trustworthiness of authentication stimulate employment of biometric techniques. Nowadays, biometric applications can be found in diverse areas such as health monitoring, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, etc. It rises to challenges of robustness, reliability, interoperability, scalability, system reliability and usability. Large-scale applications such as the European Union Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy. Multimodal biometrics combined with fusion techniques can improve recognition performance. Efficient searching or indexing methods can accelerate identi-fication efficiency. Additionally, quality of acquired biometric samples can strongly influence the performance. Quality as-sessment methods cannot only guarantee success of authenti-cation but can also provide helpful feedback to system opera-tors during the capturing process. Recently it was shown, that biometric recognition with low cost sensors embedded in mobile devices such as cell phones can improve deployment and acceptance of biometric systems.
Moreover, 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 2013 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications. We invite stakeholders and technical experts to submit original research papers. Industrial contributions presenting lessons learned from practical usage, case study, recent results of prototypes, are also welcomed. Submissions should be full papers (max. 12 pages) in English. Each paper will be subjected of a double blind peer review. Authors should upload their submission to the EasyChair platform at:

The BIOSIG conference will be co-located with the final of the
EAB European Research and Industry Award, which takes place
on September 4th. Attending the presentations at the final is possible at no additional costs. This prestigious award is granted annually to individuals who have been judged by a panel of internationally respected experts.
