SS FZ 26 - Fuzzy Techniques in Biometrics
The aim of this special session is to present the state-of-the-art results in the area of Biometrics and Fuzzy Logic and to get together researchers that are active in the two areas. In short, since the partitioning of comparisons space in genuine, imposter(and eventually undecidable pairs) is f-granular, giving a biometric decision using today’s state-of-the-art biometric systems means, in fact, giving a fuzzy biometric decision. In a simplified view, the cumulative of the imposter and genuine score distributions are the fuzzy indicators of the two (or three) f-granules, whereas the point of equal error define a defuzzification in which the security risks (expressed as False Accept Rate) and user comfort risks (expressed as False Reject Rate) are balanced. Regardless the biometric traits used in today’s state-of-the-art biometric systems, analyzing biometric
decision with fuzzy instruments reveals the direct connection and causality between the imprecision in defining digital identity and the security or comfort risks assumed in these systems. From this perspective, the special session aims to provide an opportunity for international researchers in the field of Biometrics to share and review recent advances in better defining the fuzzy biometric digital identity toward minimizing the security and comfort risks. Submissions reflecting both new theoretical advances and new highly experimental works that use the largest biometric databases are especially encouraged.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Fuzzy techniques for face / eye / ear / palm-vein detection;
• Fuzzy techniques for iris segmentation (pupil detection, limbic boundary detection);
• Fuzzy techniques for face / iris / ear / fingerprint / palm understanding (essential points
and features detection or definition);
• Fuzzy techniques for face / iris / ear / palm / fingerprint encoding;
• Fuzzy techniques for face / iris / ear / palm / fingerprint template matching;
• Fuzzy techniques for face / iris / ear / palm / fingerprint template classification;
• Fuzzy scoring schemes for multi-sample based biometric systems;
• Fuzzy scoring schemes for multi-classifier fusion in biometrics;
• Fuzzy scoring schemes for multi-biometrics fusion;
• Crisp/Fuzzy biometric theories. Verification vs. Identification.
