Call For Papers

Mobile devices are nowadays widely employed by people all over the world, with almost 3 billion users interacting with smartphones or tablets in their daily life. Such devices are not anymore used for personal communication only, but also for a variety of other applications, ranging from accessing the Internet, storing personal data, making payments, and gaining access to restricted services or areas.

With the rise of the Internet of Things, a growth trend similar to the one characterizing mobile devices in the recent past is now observed for wearable devices such as smartwatch and activity trackers, that is, smart electronic devices equipped with micro-controllers which can be incorporated into clothing or worn on the body as implants or accessories.

Given the types of data must such devices can capture, process, and store, proper secure mechanisms are needed to avoid potentially harmful threats related to security and privacy loss. It is therefore of paramount importance to design workable and effective solutions to implement automatic recognition systems within mobile and wearable devices, with biometric systems certainly representing the most interesting alternative to achieve this goal.

The present workshop will highlight the recent developments in the evolving areas of mobile and wearable biometric recognition systems. We invite submissions from all areas of computer science and pattern recognition relevant for, or applied to, mobile and wearable biometric recognition. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-Physical biometrics (fingerprint, face, iris, vein, etc.)
-Behavioral biometrics (signature, keystroke, gait, etc.)
-Cognitive biometrics (ECG, PPG, EDA, EEG, etc.)
-Attacks at biometric systems
-Biometric template protection schemes
-Multibiometric recognition systems
-Machine Learning with limited computational resources
-User interface design
-Database collection

The 1st IAPR TC4 International Workshop on Mobile and Wearable Biometrics Workshop will be held on January 11, 2021 in Milan, Italy, as a satellite event of the 25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR 2020).

Springer will proceed with the publication of the ICPR workshops proceedings in the LNCS series after the workshop.

The workshop is supported by the IAPR TC-4.

The authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their works to a Special Issue hosted by Pattern Recognition Letters (PRL), with paper submissions planned for September 2021.
