21th International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group (BIOSIG 2022)
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.
However, concerns about security and privacy cannot be neglected.
The BIOSIG 2022 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 Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory (NBL), National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity (ATHENE), the Hochschule Ansbach, 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).
INESC TEC's Centre for Telecommunications and Multimedia (CTM) is envolved in the organisation with the researcher Ana Filipa Sequeira as a Publicity Chair.
