Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Engineering Index (EI) and SCOPUS.

Scope

Biometrics is nowadays an application area which attracts continuously growing interest from both the academy, and from the industry, the government, and the general public, due to the criticality and the social impact of its applications. The increasing needs for security as well as service personalization make biometrics more and more valuable world-wide, both as theory, technologies, design methodologies, and applications are concerned. Despite being a quite narrow scientific and technological field, biometrics is highly interdisciplinary since encompasses various aspects in different disciplines (e.g., physiology, biology, medicine, psychology, sociology, chemistry, physics, material sciences, computer science, computer engineering, electronics, system automation, telecommunications, and economics). Inter-disciplinarity is a key aspect of this area. A biometric system design needs a well-integrated set of techniques: from sensing to measurement procedures, signal analysis and feature extraction, to classification and algorithms, and also to privacy, social implications, and much more. Integration and cooperative combination are another key aspects if biometric systems and applications.
