[Illustration] Banner on Fingerprint Image Quality (NFIQ2.1) We are proud to announce that the European Association for Biometrics (EAB) together with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), European Union Agency for the Operational Management of Large-Scale IT Systems in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (eu-LISA), the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC37 working group 3 is about to organise a workshop to present an update for the latest development on NFIQ 2.1. This update will address through talks and panel discussions the following topics:

  • Current production status for NFIQ 2.1
  • Experience from stakeholder
  • Introduction of training concepts and tools, to retrain the NFIQ 2.0 for other fingerprint images than from optical or inked sources.

The NIST and the ISO/IEC SC37 WG3 are dedicated to adapt and promote the NFIQ2 for large scale biometric systems.
