ICB 2009 2009 : The 3rd IAPR International Conference on Biometrics
Call For Papers
The 3rd edition of the International Conference on Biometrics (ICB 2009) is the premier scientific conference devoted to the study of Biometric Authentication and Identification technologies.
ICB 2009 follows the track established by the merging of the Audio and Video-Based Authentication conference, the International Conference on Biometric Authentication and the Sinobiometric conference. ICB 2009 will provide a unique forum, into a magnificent setting, to allow researchers engineers, system architects and designers to report recent advances in the area of biometrics and related technologies.
The conference venue for ICB 2009 is the city of Alghero in Sardinia Island (Italy).
The ICB 2009 conference will be then held in conjunction with the 6th Int.l Summer School on Biometrics , thus offering the opportunity to many of the participating students to easily attend both events.
Research papers presenting new theoretical findings as well new applications in all areas of biometrics can be submitted. The main topics are listed in the call for papers.

We are now seeing increasing deployment of biometric systems in many aspects of
life, including face, fingerprint, gait and iris recognition systems at airports as well
as access to highly secure facilities. Several applications in government,
commercial, defense and law enforcement areas have a basic need to
automatically identify humans both locally and remotely on a routine basis. The
need for high accuracy and broad population coverage has made it necessary to
investigate the use of multi-modal biometrics. The intrinsic security of the
biometrics systems and the associated privacy concerns have emerged as
important research topics.
International Conference on Biometrics (ICB 2009) will bring together
leading biometric researchers, system designers, and end users to promote the
development of robust solutions to efficient and secure authentication.
Suggested topics for presentation include, but are not limited to:
�� Hand(palm prints, veins, hand geometry)
�� Multi-modal biometric fusion
Biometric System Design
�� Large scale identification systems
�� Template selection and update
�� Smart card
�� System attacks
�� Confidence interval estimation
�� Performance modeling and prediction
�� Protocols and benchmarking
�� Sample size requirements
�� Access control
�� Border control & law enforcement
�� Intelligent robots
�� Physical and logical security
