Call for chapter proposals: Behavioral Biometrics for Human Identification


Proposal Submission Deadline: *April 30, 2008*

*Behavioral Biometrics for Human Identification: Intelligent Applications*

A Book Edited by Dr. Liang Wang, The University of Melbourne, Australia
                 Dr.  Xin Geng, Deakin University, Australia


Automatic biometrics recognition techniques are becoming increasingly
important in corporate and public security systems. The term
"biometrics" is derived from the Greek words bio (life) and metric (to
measure). There are two types of biometrics that can be used for the
purposes of human identification or verification: physical biometrics
and behavioral biometrics. Physical biometrics, such as fingerprint
and iris, have already been widely acknowledged and used in many real
applications. As a relatively new technology, behavioral biometrics
help verify a person's identity through some measurable activity
patterns, e.g., speaker recognition (i.e., analyzing vocal behavior),
signature recognition (i.e., analyzing signature dynamics), gait
recognition (i.e., analyzing walking patterns), keystroke dynamics
(i.e., analyzing keyboard typing patterns), mouse dynamics (i.e.,
analyzing mouse moving patterns), etc.

Objective of the Book

Previous books on biometrics mainly focus on physical biometric
features such as iris and fingerprint. However, behavioral biometrics
has become an emerging technology over recent years. The objective of
this book is to discuss typical behavioral biometrics and to collect
the latest advances in behavioral biometrics techniques including both
theoretical approaches and real applications. This edited book is
expected to provide researchers and practitioners a comprehensive
understanding of the start-of-the-art of behavioral biometrics
techniques, potential applications, successful practice, available
resources, etc. The book will serve as an important reference tool for
researchers and practitioners in biometrics recognition, a handbook
for research students and a repository for technologists.

Target Audience

The target audience of this book will be mainly composed of
professionals and researchers working in the field of various
disciplines, e.g. computer vision, pattern recognition, information
technique, psychology, image processing, artificial intelligence, etc.
In particular, this book will provide a comprehensive introduction to
the most recent research techniques in behavioral biometrics for
researchers. The book also serves as an important reference tool for
both researchers and practitioners working in biometrics recognition,
a handbook for research students and a repository for technologists.
It is also attractive to the managers of some organizations where
there are strong security needs.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Review of behavioral biometrics techniques
Video-based dynamic face recognition
Facial expression activity based recognition
Gait recognition
Speaker recognition
Signature recognition
Keystroke dynamics recognition
Mouse dynamics recognition
Fusion of multiple behavioral biometrics
Other behavioral biometric features
Behavioral biometrics databases
Performance evaluation standard and methods
Behavioral biometrics system and applications
Open problems and potential solutions
Other relevant

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before *April
30, 2008*, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission
and concerns of the proposed chapter, together with a tentative title
and chapter organization. Proposals will be accepted based on
pertinence criteria and topic balancing needs. Authors of accepted
proposals will be notified by *May 31, 2008* about the status of their
proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to
be submitted no later than *August 31, 2008*. All submitted chapters
will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. The book is scheduled
to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.),, publisher of the IGI Publishing (formerly Idea
Group Publishing), Information Science Publishing, IRM Press,
CyberTech Publishing, Information Science Reference (formerly Idea
Group Reference), and Medical Information Science Reference imprints.
