Academia Special Interest Group


The International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group (BIOSIG) series was launched in 2002. The workshop takes place in Darmstadt (Germany) annually during September.

Over the many years, the BIOSIG conference has addressed issues related to the ever growing deployment of biometric systems: privacy and security concerns, multiomodality, indexing, or biometric quality, just to mention a few. In addition, innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications are always presented during the event. 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 Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC), the IT Security Association (TeleTrusT), the Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory (NBL), the 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 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE and papers are added to both IEEE Xplore and the GI website.

Both stakeholders and technical experts are invited to submit original research papers. Industrial contributions presenting lessons learnt from practical usage, case study, recent results of prototypes, are also welcomed.
