Call For Papers

The 2nd International Workshop on Recent Advances in Digital Security:
Biometrics and Forensics (BIOFOR) 2019 will be held in conjunction
with the 20th International Conference on Image Analysis and
Processing. Trento, Italy, September 10th, 2019.
For more details see the website or the following CfP


Governments and organizations across the world are increasingly
adopting digital forensic tools and biometric technologies to face
identification frauds, civil crimes, and terrorism. Along this line, a
big effort has been spent to promote worldwide adoption of biometric
Identification documents such as biometric e-passport, bank cards, etc.
Although the goals of biometrics and forensics are different, they are
both aimed at supporting law enforcement and investigation by
exploiting technologies that change and evolve on a daily basis.
Increasingly, new scenarios arise where techniques designed for
biometrics can be utilized for forensic purposes, or vice-versa. This
is the case of multiple face or fingerprint images captured with
low-quality devices, which can be processed with super-resolution
techniques to reconstruct a high-resolution image. In a similar way,
sketches drawn by forensic artists based on witnesses’ description can
be treated with hallucination techniques to tentatively identify the
The 2nd International Workshop on Recent Advances in Digital Security:
Biometrics and Forensics (BioFor 2019) focuses on the ongoing research
in the fields of security, forensics, and biometrics, which include
many key sectors like Forensics Analysis, Watermarking & Data Hiding,
Steganography, Surveillance, Biometrics, and Soft Biometrics,
Biometric analysis of crime scene traces, etc. It also aims to be an
international forum where scientist and researchers can develop
synergies between the biometrics and forensic research areas.


The workshop calls for submissions addressing, but not limited to, the
following topics:
Anonymity & Privacy
Applied Cryptography
Biometrics and Soft Biometrics
Audiovisual biometrics for multimedia forensics
Forensic behavioural biometrics
Biometric analysis of crime scene traces
Communication & Physical-Layer Security
Forensics Analysis
Adversarial machine learning
Deep learning
Hardware Security
Information-Theoretic Security
Multimedia Content Hash
Security of Large Networked Systems
Usability & Human Factors
Watermarking & Data Hiding
Covert Communication & Side Channel Attacks


The submission and review process will be managed with the EasyChair
system. Link to the submission site

The Proceedings of the BioFor 2019 workshop will be published in the
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. The length
of the papers is maximum 8 pages (with references included; always an
even number of pages). There is no minimum paper length. Papers will
be selected by a single blind (reviewers are anonymous) review process
based on their originality, relevance, and clarity of presentation.
For other information about the submission format, please refer to the
workshop website
