CIBIM 2013

2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Biometrics and Identity Management

Biometric technology is the technology of the 21st century which uses measurable physiological or behavioural characteristics to reliably distinguish one person from another. The technology is fast gaining popularity as means of personal identification and verification for different commercial, government and law enforcement applications. Since biometric information cannot be captured in precisely the same way twice, biometric matching is always a “fuzzy comparison”. This feature makes computational intelligence (CI), which is primarily based on artificial intelligence, neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computing, etc., an ideal solution for addressing biometric problems. The main objective of this workshop is to bring together the leading researchers to exchange the latest theoretical and experimental CI solutions in biometrics and identity management. This event will provide an interdisciplinary forum for research scientists, system developers and students from around the world to discuss the latest advances in the field of Computational Intelligence and its application to real world problems in biometrics and identity management. The submission needs to deal with computational intelligence in biometrics.


Topics of interest include but are certainly not limited to:

  • CI-based biometric algorithms, techniques and systems
  • Machine learning, neural-networks and artificial intelligence methods in biometrics and identity management
  • Biometric solutions for physical and logical securities
  • Biometric smart ID, RFID ePassport, biometric authentication and identity management
  • Biometric information privacy and data security
  • Covert and unconstrained biometrics
  • Multiple biometrics and multi-modal biometrics information fusion
  • Biometric anti-spoofing and liveness detection
  • Mobile biometric devices and embedded biometric systems
  • Biometric performance, assurance, and interoperability testing
