The organizers of BWild 2015: International Workshop on Biometrics in the Wild have put out a call for paper submissions that address biometric recognition work performed in unconstrained settings, otherwise known as “biometric recognition in the wild”.
The BWild 2015 workshop is designed to showcase the most recent and advanced work regarding biometric recognition in the wild.
All submitted papers must show improvements over the existing state-of-the-art and use the most challenging datasets available.
The workshop’s organizers said they are interested in “all parts of biometric systems ranging from detection, landmark localization, pre-processing, and feature extraction techniques to modeling and classification approaches capable of operating on biometric data captured in the wild.”
Topics for papers include biometric recognition and detection in the wild, context-aware techniques for biometric detection and recognition, landmark localization in the wild, robust machine learning for biometrics in the wild, normalization techniques for recognition in the wild, multimodal biometrics in the wild, novel databases and performance benchmarks, and related applications.
The workshop will be held in association with the 11th International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition in the Congress Center Cankarjev Dom in Ljubljana, Slovenia on either May 4 or May 8 of 2015.
The research manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format, not be any longer than 8 pages, contain original work not currently under review elsewhere, and should not have significant overlap with already published work.
The papers submission deadline is on January 12, 2015, while the authors of all accepted papers will be notified by February 9, 2015.
