Call For Papers

13th International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group
Sept 10.-12., 2014, 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)
- ICT COST Action IC1106
- 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 recognize individuals. With increasing number of identity theft and miscues incidents we do observe a significant fraud in e-commerce and thus growing interests on trustworthiness of person authentication. Nowadays we find biometric applications in areas like border control, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, e-health etc. Large-scale applications such as the European Union Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy and also reliability, interoperability, scalability, system reliability and usability. Many of these are joint requirements also for forensic applications.

Multimodal biometrics combined with fusion techniques can improve recognition performance. Efficient searching or indexing methods can accelerate identification efficiency. Additionally, quality of captured biometric samples can strongly influence the performance. Moreover mobile biometrics is an emerging area and biometrics based smartphone can support deployment and acceptance of biometric systems.

However 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 2014 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:

BIOSIG is a non-profit conference! Thus the registration fee for
the full conference including lunch and dinner is limited to 400 EURO.
Ph.D. student registration (based on an enrolment certificate)
is at a reduced rate of 240 EURO.

The BIOSIG conference will be co-located with the final of the
EAB European Research and Industry Award, which takes place
on September 10th. 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.
