Biometrics 2008 - 5th International Summer School, Italy

5th IAPR Int.l Summer School for Advanced Studies on
Biometrics for Secure Authentication:
Alghero, Italy - June, 9-13 2008

Endorsed by: IAPR TC-4

* APPLICATION DEADLINE: February 15th 2008

In the last decade, several recognition and authentication systems based
on biometric measurements have been proposed. Many different biological
features have been utilized: fingerprint, face and facial features,
scan, iris pattern, hand geometry, dna trace, gait, and others. Algorithms
and sensors have been developed to acquire and process all different
biometric data sources.
The recent introduction of biometric data in electronic documents, such as
passports, has increased the relevance of the secure storage and
processing of personal biometric data.
What are the most up-to-date core technologies developed in the field?
What are the most relevant issues in biometric standardization? What are
the real and ultimate limitations of biometric recognition/authentication
systems? How to develop/integrate a biometric recognition system?
This school follows the successful International Summer Schools on
Biometrics held since 2003, but with a different target. In this fifth
edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues in

* How to enforce security and privacy in the biometric system (from
template to recognition);
* The design and application of new and emerging biometric technologies;
* Standardization issues and techniques for evaluation and assessment of
biometric applications.

The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the
state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, both
under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in diverse
application domains. The talks will be delivered by 18 out of the best
internationally reputed experts, both from academia and industry, actively
working in several fields related to biometric technologies.
Emphasis will be given to evaluation, standardization and to define the
maturity of technology for the deployment of biometrics in a wide range of

The school will be open to about 40 highly qualified, motivated and
pre-selected applicants. Phd students, post-docs, young researchers or
industrial professionals in the field are encouraged to apply. The
lectures will be given by several outstanding experts in the field, from
both academia and industry.
The expected school fees will be in the order of 1,200  for Phd students
and 1,700  for others (subject to change). The fees will include full
board accommodation, all courses and handling material.
Phd students and Post docs may submit a short paper (6 pages maximum,
original and unpublished work) on their recent research activity. A
scholarship will be awarded to the best paper presented by the students.
The paper may be published, together with the lecturer's contributions, in
an edited book in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes Series in Computer
