BSC 2019 (Taipei, Taiwan, Sep. 21, 2019)

The 1st international Workshop on Biometrics for Smart Cities in Conjunction with the 16th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance (AVSS)

Taipei, Taiwan, Sep. 21, 2019

Dear Colleagues:

We cordially invite you to share your latest research results related to biometrics for Smart Cities at the BSC Workshop in Taipei, Taiwan.




Biometrics is a rapidly expanding research area in the field of computer science and has become a ubiquitous term in industrial and governmental problems in different disciplinary fields such as privacy, security, engineering, applied mathematics, medicine, computational biology, healthcare, social networks, finance, business, government, education, transportation and telecommunications.

The goal of the Biometrics for Smart Cities Workshop (BSC19) is to establish an international forum for engineers and scientists to present their ideas and experiences in the fields of Biometrics, Intelligent Sensor and Technology. BSC19 welcomes paper submissions on innovative work from researchers in academia, industry and government describing original research work in Biometrics and Smart Sensors.

BSC19 will be held on Sep. 21, 2019, as a part of the 16th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal-based Surveillance (AVSS) in Taipei, Taiwan. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Face, Iris, Fingerprint and Ear

– Periocular

– Palm Prints

– Multi-Modal and Multi-Spectral Biometrics

– Mobile-based biometrics

– Template protection

– Gait and gesture

– Soft biometrics (including marks, scars and tattoos)

– Template design, selection and update

– Finance-related applications

– Database, protocol and benchmarking

– Large scale ID – Anti-spoofing

– Law enforcement and forensic applications – Security applications – Biometrics in healthcare and societal applications

– Performance modelling and prediction

– Ethical, social and legal issues

– Modeling, simulation and performance evaluation
