The technical program for IEEE BIOSIG 2013 is now online at: http://www.cast-forum.de/en/workshops/infos/178

It includes three keynote talks as well as 14 oral presentations and 22 poster presentations that were selected by the program committee.

BIOSIG 2013 will cover topics on biometric authentication methods ranging from fingerprint and face recognition to behavioral biometrics analyzing mouse dynamics. Moreover applications such as border control, ePassports and national ID cards will be addressed and critical factors for large scale systems (e.g. sample quality assessment) will be discussed, since quality control of acquired biometric samples can strongly influence the performance of these systems. Also concerns about security and privacy cannot be neglected. The relevant techniques in the area of presentation attack detection and template protection are about to supplement biometric systems, in order to improve fake resistance and to prevent potential attacks such as cross matching, identity theft etc.

The BIOSIG 2013 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications. We invite stakeholders and technical experts to attend the main conference and its co-located satellite workshops.

Registration for BIOSIG 2013

The registration website for BIOSIG 2013 is open at:


EAB Research and Industry Award

The BIOSIG conference will be co-located with the final of the EAB European Research and Industry Award, which takes place on September 4th. Attending the presentations at the final is possible at no additional cost. This prestigious award is granted annually to individuals who have been judged by a panel of internationally respected experts. For further information please visit:



Satellite workshops

On September 4 and 6 there are two further satellite workshops co-located with BIOSIG 2013 that you might be interested to attend:

- The workshop of the TeleTrusT Biometric Working Group

- The EAB-COST-ACTION workshop on Strategic Agenda on Ethical,

   Societal and Privacy Aspects of Biometric Technologies

Separate registration for the satellite workshops is required.
