IEEE International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF) 2021

The 2021 IEEE International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF 2021) will be held on May 6-7, 2021. Due to the current worldwide pandemic situation, IWBF 2021 will be moved to a virtual event. IWBF is an international forum devoted to facilitating synergies in research and development among the areas of multimedia forensics, forensic biometrics, and forensic science. State-of-the-art research in areas such as biometrics, forensic science, surveillance, and multimedia forensics will be presented. The 9th edition of IWBF will be a meeting place for those concerned with the use of advanced biometric technologies in forensic applications, attracting participants from industry, research, academia, and end-users.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Biometrics
  • Attacks to biometric recognition systems
  • Multimodal biometrics
  • Soft biometrics
  • Mobile biometrics
  • Biometric analysis of crime scenes
  • Forensic Science
