EAB/NBLAW 2022 – Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory Annual Workshop 2022

Date: 2022-03-09 (09:15-15:40) Location: Online Event, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Gjøvik, Norway

Organizer: Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory (NBL) in cooperation with the European Association for Biometrics (EAB)

Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.

Back in spring 2011 our Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory (NBL) was established and for the opening we organized a workshop. Since then we have celebrated the NBL Annual Workshops (NBLAW). All the workshops are listed on the NBL homepage.

Behavioural biometrics analyses how humans perform a specific task and then tries to authenticate or identify a person based on their behaviour. Examples are signature recognition, voice recognition, gait and keystroke dynamics, but many more exist. Analysis of the human behaviour (behavioural analysis) has a lot in common with behavioural biometrics, but the main goal is not purely the identification or authentication of a person. In the NBL Annual Workshop of 2022, there are a number of speakers that will discuss various aspects of behavioural analysis, like pros and cons, or how and where it is used (or can be used) in practice. There will be speakers from academia, governmental organizations and as well as commercial organizations to shed their light on the use of behavioural analysis.  The workshop will be a fully online event via Zoom.

All times refer to CET.
