In our global information society, there is an ever-growing need to authenticate individuals. Biometrics-based authentication is emerging as a reliable method that can overcome some of the limitations of the traditional automatic personal identification technologies. Automated biometrics deal with physiological and/or behavioral characteristics, such as a fingerprint, signature, palmprint, iris, hand, voice or face, which can be used to authenticate a person's claim to a certain identity or establish a person's identity from a large database. With the rapid progress made in electronics and Internet commerce and with the increased emphasis on security, there will be a growing need for secure transaction processing using biometrics technology.

The purpose of this conference is to emphasize the design and development of efficient and effective biometric technologies & systems, provide an international forum for researchers, engineers and vendors from different disciplines to exchange ideas, identify problems, evaluate system performance, explore new research directions, and initiate possible collaborative research and future system developments. This conference will significantly benefit biometric researchers in academic, government and industrial sectors.
