14th IAPR/IEEE Int.l Summer School for
Advanced Studies on Biometrics for Secure Authentication
Biometrics for Personalization and Forensic Identification
Endorsed by the IAPR Technical Committee on Biometrics TC-4
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.
