Workshop Description

International Conference on CyberWorlds is a well-established key
international event in the field of virtual worlds and computer graphics.
The conference is designated as ACM SIGGRAPH small conference, and is
supported by Eurographics and IEEE, with proceedings published by IEEE-CS.
In 2016, it will take place at Wanyou Conifer Hotel which is located at the
center of Chongqing, in close proximity to UNSECO World natural and Heritage
Sites, China.

Recently, the research focus has shifted towards security and privacy
aspects in virtual worlds, with cybersecurity emerged as one of the emerging
research directions. Security research domain has recently witnessed
tremendous growth in respect to all aspects of information access and
sharing. There has been notable progress in developing successful approaches
to tackle the problem of user authentication. Among those approaches,
biometric-based authentication firmly established itself as one of the most
reliable, efficient, and versatile tools for providing discretionary access
control to a secure resource or system. While state-of-the art methods for
biometric authentication are becoming increasingly more popular and better
understood, the same unfortunately cannot be said about security of users
populating on-line communities or cyberworld.

The workshop invites high-quality, original and previously unpublished
research in all areas of biometric and cyber security, including both
theoretical foundations, system design, empirical studies on individual and
multi-modal biometrics, as well as emerging biometric research trends. Image
processing, machine intelligence, cognitive sciences and information fusion
provide strong theoretical foundations and drive current state-pf-the-art
biometric research. Biometric template protection, on-line security, social
biometrics, context-based biometrics, robotic biometrics and artimetrics are
emerging areas of biometric, which fit perfectly with overall Cyberworlds
Conference themes.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Biometric image processing, feature extraction and matching
- Pattern Recognition for Biometrics
- Cancellable Biometrics and Template Protection
- Privacy and Biometrics
- Biometric based passwords and encryption
- Biometric Databases and Evaluation
- Empirical and theoretical studies, standards and models
- Multi-modal biometrics (sensor level, feature level, decision level, rank
level and match level)
- Biometric architectures
- Machine Intelligence in Biometrics
- Cognitive biometrics
- Social biometrics
- Context-based Biometrics
- Robotic Biometrics (Artimetrics)
- Security Applications and Biometric Systems
- On-line Security and Biometrics
- Virtual World Security and Biometrics

For information on paper submission and to submit your paper please go to
CW'16 web site and chose Special Sessions link to Biometric Security

All workshop papers will undergo rigorous refereeing, accepted papers will
be published as part of main Cyberworlds Conference IEEE-CS Proceedings and
indexed by major citation engines.

Journal Special Issues

Special issues in Journal of Biometrics, Inderscience and Transactions on
Computational Sciences, Springer are planned for the selected high-quality
papers presented at the workshop (if number of high-quality submissions is
sufficient for a special issue).
