Call for Doctoral Consortium

The IWBF Doctoral Consortium aims to provide a platform for current and prospective Ph.D. students to present their ideas and ongoing research, meet other researchers, and obtain feedback from well-known advisers about possible directions for their future research. The doctoral consortium is a great opportunity for students to discuss the strengths/weaknesses of different research proposals, as well to show/present some preliminary results. Also, it should promote the brainstorming about exciting opportunities in the forensics/biometrics domains of knowledge.

Accepted submissions will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium and published in the workshop proceedings. One mentor will be nominated for each candidate/student, and there will be opportunity for both bilateral meetings (mentor and student) and multilateral meetings (all mentors and students) during the consortium, in order to obtain constructive feedbacks for each prospective work plan.
