The International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF) is organized by COST Action IC1106, “Integrating Biometrics and Forensics for the Digital Age”. It is an international forum devoted specifically to the development of synergies between the biometrics recognition and forensic science research areas. IWBF provides the meeting place for those concerned with the usage of biometric recognition systems in forensic science applications, attracting participants from industry, research, academia and users.

Topics of interest for submissions include, but are not limited to:

  • Biometric evidence for forensic evaluation and investigation
  • Audiovisual biometrics for forensics examination
  • Soft biometrics for forensics examination
  • Forensic behavioural biometrics
  • Biometric analysis of crime scene traces and their forensic interpretation
  • Combination of multimodal biometrics with other forensic evidence
  • Ethical and societal implications of emerging forensics biometrics

Invited Speakers

  • Anil Jain, Michigan State University, USA
  • Niels Lynnerup, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Christophe Champod, University of Lausanne, Switzerland
