Special Session: Computational Intelligence in Biometrics and Biometrics Applications at the IEEE WCCI 2016

Aim and Scope

Biometrics is a technology that focuses on using measurable human physiological or behavioural characteristics to reliably distinguish one person from others. Because of the fuzzy nature of biometrics, there are no two samples that will be perfectly identical. Computational intelligence (CI), primarily based on artificial intelligence, neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computing, etc., has been exploited to solve biometric problems with promising results. This special session intends to provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners, from industry, government, and academia, to share their research and experiences in the field of computational intelligence in biometrics. The focus of this special session is on innovative, new technologies designed to address important issues in the development of biometrics.

Main Topics

Possible topic areas include, but are certainly not limited to the following areas:

Paper Submission and Publication

Please submit your paper(s) to Cross-Disciplinary and CI Applications Special Session. The final paper(s) will be published in one of the three conference proceedings (IJCNN, FUZZ-IEEE, or IEEE CEC) that are most appropriate for their paper(s). The decision will be made by the Special Session Organizers in consultation with the Special Session Chair and one of the three Conference Chairs.
