Workshop on Face Image Quality

Date: 2021-11-16 (2021-11-18) - 13:15 (19:00) Location: This will be a virtual event.

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB) in cooperation with DHS Office of Biometric Identity Management, 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 and project iMARS

This workshop will present an update on the latest development on Face Image Quality.

This update will address through talks and panel discussions the following topics:

  • current state of the art of face image quality metrics
  • experience from stakeholder and requirements
  • introduction of training concepts
  • testing program (FRVT)
  • standardization process
