Biometrics performance conference

CALL FOR PAPERS – IJCB 2011:  International Joint Conference on Biometrics
Biometrics Systems -> Theory – Modeling – Performance – Applications
October 11-13, 2011, Washington, DC, USA,
Paper submission due:         May 27, 2011
Notification of results:      July 15, 2011
Final paper due:              Aug 12, 2011
The 2011 International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2011) is a special combination of two major biometrics research conferences, the Biometrics Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS) conference and the International Conference on Biometrics (ICB).  The blending of these two conferences for this one year is through special agreement of the IEEE and the IAPR, and should present an exciting event for the entire worldwide biometrics research community.
The organizers invite you to submit high quality, original full research papers by *MAY 27, 2011*. Submitted papers may not be accepted or under review elsewhere.
Submissions may be up to eight pages in conference format (double blind reviewing). Papers accepted and presented at IJCB 2011 will be published in the conference proceedings in the IEEE Xplore library.
Full details on the paper format, electronic submission procedure, conference events and venue can be found on the conference site. IJCB 2011 is intended to have a 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, speaker recognition, fingerprint methods, vascular biometrics, security and privacy, biometric encryption, cancellable biometrics, anti-spoofing methods, writer recognition, ear biometrics, multibiometrics fusion, 2D/3D face recognition, hand geometry, palmprint/footprint recognition, gait, novel biometrics, facial aging
effects, social impact analysis, usability studies, remote biometrics, performance evaluation, illumination-invariance, covariate analysis, soft biometrics biometric databases, DNA biometrics, novel sensors and applications.
General Chairs – Kevin Bowyer (University of Notre Dame, US), Rama Chellappa (University of Maryland, US)
Program Chairs – Terry Boult (University of Colorodo, CS, US), Josef Kittler (University of Surrey, UK), Ajay Kumar (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, HK)
Advisory Board – Anil Jain (Michigan State University, US), Mark Nixon (University of Southamption, UK), Jonathon Phillips (NIST, US), Tieniu Tan (NLPR, CN), Massimo Tistarelli (University of Sassari, IT), Kar-Ann Toh (Yonsei University, KR)
Publications Chair – Patrick Flynn (University of Notre Dame, US)
Finance Chair – Arun Ross (West Virgenia University, US)
