CfA: 8th Summer School for Advanced Studies on Biometrics for Secure

In the last decade, several recognition and authentication systems based on biometric measurements have been proposed. Algorithms and sensors have been developed to acquire and process many different biometric data sources. The recent introduction of biometric data in
electronic documents has increased the relevance of the secure storage and processing of personal biometric data. As more security is required, multimodality has also come to the fore. Moreover, emerging applications also require to perform human identification in motion and at a distance.

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 human recognition/ authentication systems working at a distance? 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 8th edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues in biometrics:

1. How to exploit new technologies in forensics and in security application at a distance;
2. Identity management in new and emerging multimodal biometric technologies;
3. Standardization, evaluation and assessment of biometric applications.

The lectures will be given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry. Emphasis will be given to evaluation, standardization and to define the maturity of technology for the deployment of biometrics in a wide range of applications.

Submission of applications: February 15th, 2011
