From the early days, when security was the driving force behind biometric research, today's challenges go far beyond security. Machine learning, Image understanding, Signal analysis, Neuroscience, Robotics, Forensic science, Digital forensics and other disciplines, converged in a truly multidisciplinary effort to devise and build advanced systems to facilitate the interpretation of signals recorded from individuals acting in a given environment. This is what we simply call today "Biometrics".

What are the most up-to-date core biometric technologies developed in the field? What is the potential impact of biometrics in forensic investigation and crime prevention? What can we learn from human perception? How to deploy current Deep Learning approaches? How to deal with adversarial attacks in biometric recognition?

This school follows the successful track of the International Summer Schools on Biometrics held since 2003. In this 17th edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues:

  • Biometrics for social interactions and emerging applications;
  • How to exploit new biometric technologies in forensic and security applications;
  • Evaluation and assessment of biometric and forensic applications;
  • Deep Learning for biometrics, forensic identification and Identity Science.

The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, both under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in diverse application domains.

The lectures will be given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry.

An advanced feature of this summer school will be some practical sessions to better understand, "hands on", the real potential of today's biometric technologies.

Program | Registration

The 7th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference will take place at the premises of Fraunhofer IGD in Darmstadt, Germany from 14 to 16 September 2020. 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 2020 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.
