EAB & CITeR Biometrics Workshop

Date: 2023-04-18 - 2023-04-19 Location: Martigny, Switzerland and online

Organizer: The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) in collaboration with the Center for Identification Technology Research (CITeR) and IDIAP

!!!SOLD OUT!!! Tickets to participate in person are SOLD OUT!!!

ONLINE participation open until start of event.

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).

The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) and the Center for Identification Technology Research (CITeR) are organising a 2-day biometrics workshop, hosted by the Idiap Research Institute in Martigny Switzerland on April 18-19 2023, on the topics of Bias mitigation, Template Security, Presentation Attack Detection and Deepfakes. This workshop is a second edition of the EAB workshop on Presentation Attack Detection previously hosted at the Idiap Research Institute in 2020.

The workshop will be co-located with the CITeR Spring 2023 Program Review and training events of the TReSPAsS-ETN and PriMa-ITN projects.
