IEEE BTAS 2018 - Special Session On Image And Video Forensics In Biometrics (IVFIB)
9th IEEE International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications, and Systems (BTAS 2018)
October 22, 2018
Los Angeles, California

The advancements in creating high-quality digitally manipulated content of the real world with detailed geometry, surface texture, and material in both static and dynamic environments has posed major problems in various domains. The introduction of highly realistic models such as Face2Face can not only fool the biometric systems but also have a large impact on the digital information channels. Another set of problems include the image manipulation attacks and video manipulation attacks which have proven to defeat the biometric systems. The attack modes have made use of both traditional manipulation approaches and recent adversarial machine learning approaches (eg., GAN). Large-scale projects like DARPA MediFor SAVI and DARPA ODIN BATL have underlined the need to solutions to defend against these attack vectors.

BTAS-2018 - Special session on Image and Video Forensics in Biometrics is organized to evaluate the impact and mitigation measures of such adversarial attacks on biometrics systems. This half-day workshop in conjunction with BTAS-2018, calls for high-quality, previously unpublished works related to approaches and methodologies.

Papers are invited to report on following topics, but not limited to:
Novel attack mechanisms
Approaches on evaluating the human perception in detecting such attacks
Algorithmic advancements in detecting attacks
Detection and mitigation of adversarial attacks

BTAS 2018 Special Session - IFVIB invites researchers submit original research papers Submissions should conform to the BTAS-2018 proceedings style. Accepted papers from the Special Session will be included in the BTAS2018 Proceedings through IEEE. Papers must be submitted online through the submission system that will be announced from this page and will be double-blind peer reviewed by at least three reviewers.
