The 8th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference will take place as virtual conference from 13 to 15 September 2021. 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 2021 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.

Biometrics provides efficient and reliable solutions to recognize individuals. With increasing number of identity theft and miss-use incidents we do observe a significant fraud in e-commerce and thus growing interests on trustworthiness of person authentication. Nowadays we find biometric applications in areas like border control, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, e-health etc. Large-scale applications such as the upcoming European Union Entry Exit System (EES), the Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy and also reliability, interoperability, scalability and usability. Many of these are joint requirements also for forensic applications.

Multimodal biometrics combined with fusion techniques can improve recognition performance. Efficient searching or indexing methods can accelerate identification efficiency. Additionally, quality of captured biometric samples can strongly influence the performance. Moreover, mobile biometrics is an emerging area and biometrics-based smartphones can support deployment and acceptance of biometric systems.

However, concerns about security and privacy cannot be neglected. The relevant techniques in the area of presentation attack detection (liveness detection) and template protection are about to supplement biometric systems, in order to improve fake resistance, prevent potential attacks such as cross-comparison, identity theft etc.

The BIOSIG 2021 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications. The conference is jointly organized by the Competence Center for Applied Security Technology (CAST), the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), the European Association for Biometrics (EAB), the TeleTrusT-Association, the Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory (NBL), National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity (ATHENE), the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD, IET Biometrics Journal and the special interest group BIOSIG of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI). The conference will be technically co-sponsored by IEEE and papers will be added to IEEE Xplore.

Since the end of 2019, the whole world has been living with the effects of the COVID-19 disease. Due to the airborne nature of the novel coronavirus, the COVID-19 disease has spread rapidly in many countries in a short time and has also been declared a global pandemic. Several preventive measures were implemented to reduce the spread of this disease, including social distancing, wearing face masks, avoiding large crowds, and others.

To help monitor public behavior and compliance with the implemented prevention measures, to gather reliable data for epidemiological models, facilitate authorized access and authentication, ensure safety and security despite the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical to develop automated machine learning and computer vision based techniques that can help with these tasks. The COVID-19 pandemic has initiated research and development of computer-aided systems that can be used to prevent and monitor not only COVID-19 but also similar diseases that may appear in the future.

The goal of this workshop is to present the most recent and advanced work related to face and gesture analysis in the scope of COVID-19. We are interested in all COVID-19 related studies that focus on the detection of face mask, subjects' behaviors in public areas, analysis of pandemic and preventions-related real-world face and gesture data, prevention control and monitoring systems for unconstrained real-world conditions and related problems.
