IEEE Fourth International Conference on

Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems

voice waveform

The IEEE Fourth International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS 10) is the premier research meeting focused on biometrics.  Its broad scope includes advances in fundamental pattern recognition techniques relevant to biometrics, new algorithms and / or technologies for biometrics, analysis of specific applications, and analysis of the social impacts of biometrics technology.  Areas of coverage include biometrics based on voice, fingerprint, iris, face, handwriting, gait and other modalities, as well as multi-modal biometrics and new biometrics based on novel sensing technologies.  Submissions will be rigorously reviewed, and should clearly make the case for a documented improvement over the existing state of the art.  Experimental results for contributions in established areas such as voice, face, iris, fingerprint, and gait are encouraged to use the largest and most challenging existing publicly available datasets.  Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

iris biometrics
face recognition
speaker identification
writer recognition
hand geometry
recognition by gait
ear biometrics
palm/foot print
novel biometrics
multi-biometric methods
performance evaluation
security and privacy
anti-spoofing methods
template aging
novel applications
social impact analysis
usability studies
system-level evaluation
application case studies
soft biometrics
biometric databases
DNA biometrics
novel sensors
