5th International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics – IWBF 2017
4 - 5 April, 2017, Coventry, United Kingdom

The 2017 International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF) is organized by the EU Horizon 2020 IDENTITY Project and will be held at the University of Warwick, Coventry, UK, on April 4 - 5, 2017. IWBF is an international forum devoted specifically to facilitate synergies in research and development among the areas of multimedia forensics, forensic biometrics, and forensic science. IWBF provides the meeting place for those concerned with the usage of multimedia analysis in forensic applications and biometric recognition systems, attracting participants from industry, research, academia and end-users.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Multimedia forensics including identification of source devices and source-oriented image clustering
• Integrity verification and Authentication of Digital Content
• Watermarking schemes for ownership identification, ownership proof, and copy control
• Steganography and Steganalysis
• Forensic behavioural biometrics People identification based on face, iris, fingerprint and soft biometric traits
• Biometric analysis of crime scene traces and their forensic interpretation
• Combination of multimodal biometrics with other forensic evidence
• Biometric-based cybercrime investigation
• Biometric and non-biometric data de-identification
• Ethical and societal implications of emerging forensics biometrics
• Case studies of the afore-mentioned topics

The 5th IWBF will include a special session on anomaly detection in surveillance video organized by the Global Challenge Research Fund of the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Paper Submission:
Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished work, in English, with up to 6 pages (IEEE conference style), including results, figures and references. Submissions will be accepted only in PDF format according to the instructions provided on the web site.
