Registration open for NIST International Face Performance Conference 2018
NIST has announced its International Face Performance Conference (IFPC) 2018, where industry researchers and stakeholders will explore technical factors affecting the deployment and use of high-performance face recognition applications.
IFPC 2018 takes place November 27 to 29, at NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, Marlyand. Topics considered will include standards, advanced and rapid capture, quality assessment, age and aging effects, demographic effects, datasets and their preparation, training and tuning, presentation attack detection, non-cooperative uses, accuracy measurement, and performance tests.
The conference is supported by the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, as well as the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the European Association for Biometrics (EAB).
Speakers have been assembled from around the globe to promote the overarching goal of bringing greater maturity to face recognition to improve performance, transparency, and trustworthiness. Proposals are welcome for technical or policy presentations, and presentations are currently expected on algorithm tests, image capture tests, security tests, image quality standardization and tests, border control, presentation attack, demographic effects, aging, de-identification, morphing, and government activities in various countries.
Registration for IFPC 2018 is now open, and agenda details are expected to be announced in late September.
NIST recently awarded a $75M contract to Strativia for scientific, technical, and engineering support services.
