International Conference on Biometrics (ICB) was established in 2006 as a biennial conference by merging AVBPA (Audio- and Video-based Person Authentication), ICBA (International Conference on Biometric Authentication) and other biometric workshops, and since then has established itself as a premier international conference in biometrics. The fourth edition was held in conjunction with the BTAS conference (Biometrics: Theory, Applications, Systems) in Washington, DC, USA (October 2011) and was named the International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB). Since then ICB has changed into an annual conference providing researchers with an avenue for presenting biometrics research results of highest quality. ICB is an official conference of the IAPR Technical Committee on Biometrics (TC4) and is also co-sponsored by IEEE Biometrics Council.
For 2015, ICB will be held at Phuket, Thailand. It will have oral sessions, posters, tutorials, demonstrations, competitions and a government track to coincide with the beginning of ASEAN Economic Community 2015 (AEC2015).
The conference will have a broad scope and invites papers that advance biometric technologies, sensor design, feature extraction and matching algorithms, analysis of security and privacy, and evaluation of social impact of biometrics technology. Topics of interest include all areas of current Biometrics research and applications
