Biometrie-BIOSIG 2015

Termin: 09.-11.09.2015
Dauer: 10:00-17:00
Ort: Fraunhofer IGD
Fraunhoferstr. 5
64283 Darmstadt

Biometrics provides efficient and reliable solutions to recognize individuals. Growing interests on trustworthiness of authentication stimulate employment of biometric techniques. Nowadays, biometric applications can be found in diverse areas such as health monitoring, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, etc. It rises to challenges of robustness, reliability, interoperability, scalability, system reliability and usability. Large-scale applications such as the European Union Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy. Multimodal biometrics combined with fusion techniques can improve recognition performance. Efficient searching or indexing methods can accelerate identification efficiency. Additionally, quality of acquired biometric samples can strongly influence the performance. Quality assessment methods can notonly guarantee success of authentication but can also provide helpful feedback to system operators during the capturing process. Recently it was shown, that biometric recognition with low cost sensors embedded in mobile devices such as cell phones can improve deployment and acceptance of biometric systems.

Moreover, concerns about security and privacy cannot be neglected. The relevant techniques in the area of presentation attack detection (liveness detection) and template protection are about to supplement biometric systems, in order to improve fake resistance, prevent potential attacks such as cross matching, identity theft etc.

The BIOSIG 2015 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications. We invite stakeholders and technical experts to submit original research papers. Industrial contributions presenting lessons learned from practical usage, case study, recent results of prototypes, are also welcomed. You can find the call for papers at:

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 Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC), the TeleTrusT-Association, the Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory (NBL), the Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED), the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD, and the special interest group BIOSIG of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI).

The BIOSIG 2015 conference will be accompanied by three co-located satellite workshops on September 7 and 9:

  • the EAB Research Project Conference (program)
  • the TeleTrusT-Workshop ( program )
  • the EAB Biometrics Research and Industry Award (program).

You are kindly invited to consider participation in these events in your travel arrangements. Please note that a seperated registration is required via the EAB website under the above program links. For the detailed program and registration of the BIOSIG 2015 main conference on September 9 to 11 please follow the links below.
