BIOSIG 2017 – 16th International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group

Date: 2017-09-21 - 2017-09-22 Location: Fraunhofer IGD, Fraunhoferstraße 5, 64283 Darmstadt, Germany

Organizer: GI Special Interest Group BIOSIG in cooperation with BSI, Fraunhofer IGD, JRC, CAST e.V. and IEEE

Registration: https://www.cast-forum.de/en/workshops/registration/241

Biometrics provides efficient and reliable solutions to recognize individuals. With increasing number of identity theft and miss-use incidents we do observe a significant fraud in e-commerce and thus growing interests on trustworthiness of person authentication. Nowadays we find biometric applications in areas like border control, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, e-health etc. Large-scale applications such as the European Union SmartBorder Concept, the Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy and also reliability, interoperability, scalability and usability. Many of these are joint requirements also for forensic applications.

Multimodal biometrics combined with fusion techniques can improve recognition performance. Efficient searching or indexing methods can accelerate identification efficiency. Additionally, quality of captured biometric samples can strongly influence the performance. Moreover, mobile biometrics is an emerging area and biometrics based smartphones can support deployment and acceptance of biometric systems.

However, concerns about security and privacy cannot be neglected. The relevant techniques in the area of presentation attack detection (liveness detection) and template protection are about to supplement biometric systems, in order to improve fake resistance, prevent potential attacks such as cross matching, identity theft etc.

The BIOSIG 2017 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications.

Preserving Privacy in an age of increased surveillance – A Biometrics Perspective

Date: 2017-10-19 (10:00-16:30) Location: IBM SouthBank, Fleming Room, 76/78 Upper Ground, South Bank, London SE1 9PZ

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB) in cooperation with IBM Emerging Technologies
Attendance is free of charge.
Number of places on this workshop is limited. Early registration is recommended prior to 2017-09-30

Program | Registration

This one-day workshop will focus on privacy issues surrounding biometric technologies and applications. We will together reflect upon the many new threats and opportunities arising from the rapid increase in the channels of biometric data capture (e.g. sensors on mobile devices) and processing capabilities. The workshop will bring together various stakeholders from amongst end users, technology developers, researchers and legal experts to discuss the serious challenges that these developments present and explore together ways for addressing them.

European Biometrics Symposium

Date: 2017-11-08 Location: Canterbury, UK

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB) together with AMBER ITN
Program | Registration

Biometrics in Banking and Payments in London

Date: 2017-11-16 Location: London, UK

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB)
Program | Registration

The seminar will reflect the trends and opportunities of biometrics in the financial market. It will be discussed how processes can be designed both convenient and privacy compliant. The speakers will provide you with their experience on how to best benefit of biometric technologies and solutions. Financial institutions get free entrance (lunch included).

The seminar presents a line-up of excellent international speakers, ranging from end users (who share their experiences with biometrics in their day to day applications) to experts who will bring you up to date with the state of the art in biometric technology advances. Speakers will focus on the underlying business cases and developments in mobile banking and financial transactions. They will share their experiences from a business perspective, touching important aspects such as process flows, added value, fraud reduction, implementation strategy and client experience.

Biometrics in Banking and payments will provide guidance on how biometrics can be used to optimize key aspects of the banking and payment processes, such as customer interaction, operational efficiency, fraud reduction and prevention. During the seminars we will reflect the many new opportunities arising from the gradual shift away from desktop/notebook computing towards smartphones, tablets and other portable devices, while sharing best practice of apps and web-based applications. You will learn about biometric solutions for in-branch and mobile environment and for internal and customer-facing usage. There will be presentations about how biometrics support mega trends such as personalization and location independent services. It will also be discussed how biometrics can be embedded into front end and back end processes.
