EAB Research Projects Conference (EAB-RPC) 2020

Date: 2020-09-14 (2020-09-16) - 14:45 (16:00) Location: Virtual Conference; access data will be sent to the participants short before the event.

Organizer: The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) in cooperation with the Joint Research Center (DG-JRC) of the European Commission, and Fraunhofer IGD.
Organizing Committee: Javier Galbally (Scientific Chair, EC DG-JRC), Farzin Deravi (Round-Table Chair, EAB – Univ. of Kent), Dinusha Frings (Round-Table Co-Chair, Citizen ID), Fernando Alonso-Fernandez (Demo and Posters Chair, EAB – Halmstad Univ.), Alexander Nouak (Publicity and Local Committee Chair, Chairman of EAB – Fraunhofer ICT Group), Christoph Busch (Local Committee Co-Chair, Hochschule Darmstadt)

Fees are non-refundable as from 7 days before the start of the event.

Note: If you are not yet an EAB-member, please consider to register for membership first (starting from 95,00 € per year). You then can register for the EAB-RPC as an EAB-member for only 240,00 € instead of 360,00 €, which means an overall saving of 25,00 €!



The 7th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference will take place as virtual conference from 14 to 16 September 2020. The conference is organized by the European Association on Biometrics (EAB) in cooperation with the Joint Research Center (DG JRC) of the European Commission, through its Cyber and Digital Citizens’ security Unit. The EAB-RPC 2020 will be co-located with the EAB Biometrics Research, Industry and Max-Snijder-Awards and the IEEE BIOSIG Conference, later that same week.

The conference is currently the largest event on research funded by the European Union in the area of Biometrics and Identity Management. Over the previous successful editions, EAB-RPC has become the main forum in Europe where attendees can simultaneously: promote research carried out in biometrics, forge new links and networks, and identify the appropriate partners for possible future project applications. Last year’s edition welcomed over 100 participants from academia, industry and public institutions.

We thank our partners:
