Conference Call for Papers

The 2021 IEEE International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF 2021) will be held in Rome, Italy, on May 6-7, 2021. IWBF is an international forum devoted to facilitating synergies in research and development among the areas of multimedia forensics, forensic biometrics, and forensic science. State-of-the-art research in areas such as biometrics, forensic science, surveillance, and multimedia forensics will be presented. The 9th edition of IWBF will be a meeting place for those concerned with the use of advanced biometric technologies in forensic applications, attracting participants from industry, research, academia, and end-users.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Biometrics

• Attacks to biometric recognition systems

• Multimodal biometrics

• Soft biometrics

• Mobile biometrics

• Biometric analysis of crime scenes

• Forensic Science

• Multimedia forensics

• Integrity verification

• Anonymization & Data Privacy

• Data de-identification

• Surveillance

• Ethical and societal implications

• Information Theoretic Security

• Adversarial Signal Processing

• Case studies on the aforementioned topics

Workshop proceedings will be published in the IEEE Xplore® digital library.


Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished work, in English, with up to 6 pages including results, figures and references. Overlength submissions will not be reviewed.

Authors should follow carefully all instructions and guidelines provided in the IEEE conference style and use the respective template. Manuscripts must be submitted in PDF format using the Microsoft CMT submission system.

The review process will be blind.


The IWBF 2021 technical program will include Special Sessions to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest, in line with the technical scope of the conference. Proposals will be evaluated based on topic novelty and associated impact, organizing committee qualifications, as well as the proposed list of contributed papers.


The IWBF 2021 organizers invite academia, industry researchers and practitioners to showcase their work in biometrics and forensics through demonstrations. We are searching for interactive displays of innovative methods, systems and applications within the workshop’s topics of interest.


The IWBF 2021 Doctoral Consortium aims to provide a platform for current and prospective Ph.D. students to present their ideas and ongoing research, meet other researchers, and obtain feedback from well-known advisers about possible directions for their future research. The doctoral consortium is a great opportunity for students to discuss the strengths/weaknesses of different research proposals
