15th IAPR/Eurasip Int.l Summer School for Advanced Studies on
Biometrics for Secure Authentication:
ASSURING TRUSTWORTHINESS OF BIOMETRICS
Alghero, Italy - June, 11-15 2018
Technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Biometrics Council
From the early days, when security was the driving force behind biometric research, today's challenges go far beyond security. Machine learning, Image understanding, Signal analysis, Neuroscience, Forensic science, Digital forensics and other disciplines, converged in a truly multidisciplinary effort to devise and build advanced systems to facilitate the interpretation of signals recorded from individuals acting in a given environment. This is what we simply call today "Biometrics".
For the last fifteen years, the International Summer School on Biometrics has been closely following the developments in science and technology to offer a cutting edge, intensive training course, always up to date with the current state-of-the-art.
What are the most up-to-date core biometric technologies developed in the field? What is the potential impact of biometrics in forensic investigation and crime prevention? How to detect impersonation attacks and disguise? What can we learn from human perception? What is a biometric recognition system?
This school follows the successful track of the International Summer Schools on Biometrics held since 2003. In this 15th edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues:
The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, both under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in diverse application domains. The lectures will be given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry.
