Keynote Speaker

Prof. Raymond Veldhuis
University of Twente, The Netherlands

Raymond Veldhuis graduated from The University of Twente, The Netherlands in 1981. From 1982 until 1992 he worked as a researcher at Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven in various areas of digital signal processing. In 1988, he received the PhD degree from Nijmegen University on a thesis entitled Adaptive Restoration of Lost Samples in Discrete-Time Signals and Digital Images. From 1992 until 2001 he worked at the IPO (Institute of Perception Research) Eindhoven in the field of speech processing. Raymond Veldhuis is now a full professor in Biometric Pattern recognition at The University of Twente, where he is leading a research group in this field. The main research topics are face recognition (2D and 3D), fingerprint recognition, vascular pattern recognition, multibiometric fusion, and biometric template protection. The research is both applied and fundamental.

Dr. Richard Guest
University of Kent, UK

Dr. Richard Guest is Reader in Biometric Systems Engineering at the University of Kent. His research interests lie broadly within image processing and pattern recognition, specializing in biometric and forensic systems, particularly in the areas of image and behavioral information analysis, standardization and document processing. He has significant involvement with biometric standards development as Panel Chair of the UK BSI IST/44 Working Group on Biometric Technical Interfaces and as UK Principal Expert to ISO/IEC in this area representing the UK industrial, governmental and academic interests. He has over 100 peer-reviewed publications, acted as editor of 3 international standards and has obtained funding from UK EPSRC, ESRC, EU, charitable funds and industry. He is the Project Coordinator of the AMBER EU Marie Curie ITN on mobile biometrics systems.

Speech Title: "Mobile Biometrics: Challenges and Opportunities"

Abstract: The use of biometric systems are becoming ever more widespread, especially on mobile computing devices such as tablets and smartphones. Conventional research into biometric systems has focussed on the development of algorithmic solutions to enhance verification and identification of subjects with solutions being used in predominantly ‘fixed’ implementations, where sensors and systems are deployed in controlled situations. The transition of biometric systems to mobile devices is not straightforward however as, by their very nature, devices can be used in many different environments. Minimising environmental effects and interaction problems are critical as biometrics become ubiquitous – particularly given the wider user-base and usage frequency. Balancing these challenges are the range of novel mobile device sensors and data that may be utilised to enhance personal security and authentication for the user. In this presentation we shall explore the key opportunities and challenges for future research within mobile biometrics, addressing issues such as continuous authentication, multimodality, interaction and vulnerability assessment.

Plenary Speaker I

Assoc. Prof. Julian Fierrez
Universidad Autonoma De Madrid, Spain

Julian FIERREZ received the MSc and the PhD degrees in telecommunications engineering from Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain, in 2001 and 2006, respectively. Since 2002 he has been affiliated with the Biometric Recognition Group, first at Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, and since 2004 at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, where he is currently an Associate Professor. From 2007 to 2009 he was a visiting researcher at Michigan State University in USA under a Marie Curie fellowship. His research interests include general signal and image processing, pattern recognition, and biometrics, with emphasis on signature and fingerprint verification, multi-biometrics, biometric databases, system security, and forensic applications of biometrics.
Prof. Fierrez has been actively involved in multiple EU projects focused on biometrics (e.g. TABULA RASA and BEAT), has attracted notable impact for his research, and is the recipient of a number of distinctions, including: EBF European Biometric Industry Award 2006, EURASIP Best PhD Award 2012, Medal in the Young Researcher Awards 2015 by the Spanish Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Miguel Catalan Award to the Best Researcher under 40 in the Community of Madrid in the general area of Science and Technology. Most recently, he has been also awarded the IAPR Young Biometrics Investigator Award 2017, given to a single researcher worldwide every two years under the age of 40, whose research work has had a major impact in biometrics.
Since 2016 he is and Associate Editor for IEEE Trans. on IFS and the IEEE Biometrics Council newsletter.
