“Recent Advances and Future Directions in Biometrics Personal Identification”


Recently, Biometrics has emerged as a promising research area for personal identification and authentication. Biometrics systems use biological or behavioral traits such as face, fingerprint, iris, hand-geometry, palm-print, gait, and voice, etc; to establish an individual’s identity. Although many biometric-based applications have been found in our daily lives, but its universal usability rate is still far behind its deserved-potential. One of the major impediments is that many technological challenges are unresolved so far and a lot of research questions are still unsolved. The goal of this special issue is aimed at collecting original papers that present recent advances and future directions in biometrics-based personal identification systems for any aspect of the design, implementation and application of biometrics systems. Original contributions that provide novel solutions to challenging problems of biometrics systems will be solicited for this special issue. Research areas of relevance would therefore include, but not only limited to, the following topics:

• Emerging biometrics modalities e.g. ear, gait, ECG, teeth, skin
• 2D and 3D biometrics recognition
• Multimodal biometrics and fusion techniques
• Secure biometrics communication and transmission
• Privacy, anonymity and security in biometrics systems
• Biometrics encryption, liveness detection, and cancelable biometrics
• Integration and interoperability in biometrics systems
• Large-scale biometrics databases and indexing
• Biometrics systems for security applications (e.g., authentication, surveillance, computer security, national defense, border control, driver license, transportation)
• Biometrics systems for large-scale applications (e.g., e-commerce, e-banking, e-government, PKI)
• Biometrics in consumer applications
