IWBF Series

The International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF) series was launched in 2013. IWBF is an international forum devoted specifically to the development of synergies between the biometrics and forensic science research areas. IWBF provides the meeting place for those concerned with the usage of biometric recognition systems in forensic science applications, attracting participants from industry, research, academia and users. The workshop takes places in spring each year and complements the European BIOSIG conference which takes place in Darmstadt, Germany annually during September.
