14th IAPR Summer School for Advanced Studies on Biometrics for Secure Authentication

 In Events

Alghero, 12-16 Giugno, 2017 – 14th IAPR Summer School for Advanced Studies on Biometrics for Secure Authentication

From the early days, when security was the driving force behind biometric research, today’s challenges go far beyond security. Other applications, such as personalization of services, mobile computing and criminal investigations, are among the most promising applications. Machine learning, Image understanding, Signal analysis, Neuroscience, Forensic science, Digital forensics and other disciplines, converged in a truly multidisciplinary effort to devise and build advanced systems to facilitate the interpretation of signals recorded from individuals acting in a given environment. This is what we simply call today “Biometrics”.

For the last fourteen years, the International Summer School on Biometrics has been closely following the developments in science and technology to offer a cutting edge, intensive training course, always up to date with the current state-of-the-art.

What are the most up-to-date core biometric technologies developed in the field? What is the potential impact of biometrics in forensic investigation and crime prevention? How can biometrics provide means for efficient and automatic personalization of services? What can we learn from human perception? What does it involve to integrate a biometric recognition system?

This school follows the successful track of the International Summer Schools on Biometrics held since 2003. In this 14th edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues:


  • How Biometrics will drive the automatic personalization of services;
  • How to exploit new biometric technologies in forensic and security applications;
  • Standardization, evaluation and assessment of biometric and forensic applications;
  • Biometric and Forensic identification and advanced research: What is next?


The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, both under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in diverse application domains.

The lectures will be given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry.

An advanced feature of this summer school will be some practical sessions to better understand, “hands on”, the real potential of today’s biometric technologies.
