Forensic Facial Examination – Transparency and Uniformity in Casework

Date: 2022-11-29 (12:30-13:30 CET) Location: Zoom

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB)

Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
Registered participants will receive dial-in credentials the morning of the event.


Speakers: Dr Trine Edvardsen
Program | Registration

For the purpose of transparency and reproducibility, The Danish National ID Centre has developed a data model to assist the facial examiner in placement on the conclusion/opinion scale. By processing case data, including suitability for comparison, image quality and levels of visibility, the model supports the manual facial examination. The aim of the model is to introduce limitations to the subjective evaluation of a face comparison, by introducing overall objective parameters into the decision through the data model.

Curriculum vitæ

Trine Edvardsen is an experienced biometric analyst within the fields of facial and fingerprint examinations. In the Danish National ID Centre, she has been involved in the innovation and advancement of the facial examination procedures used by the biometric team. She is also a member of FISWG and FINWG. Trine has a background in the natural sciences, with a PhD in palaeontology from The Natural History Museum of Denmark and a postdoc from the University of Exeter.

The 10th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference is organised by the European Association on Biometrics (EAB) with the contribution of eu-LISA through its Governance and Capabilities Unit, the support of DG HOME of the European Commission, Fraunhofer IGD and Halmstad University.

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 70 participants from academia, industry and public institutions.
