The 2011 International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2011) is a
special combination of two major biometrics research conferences, the
Biometrics Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS) conference and the
International Conference on Biometrics (ICB). The blending of these two
conferences for this one year is through special agreement of the IEEE and
the IAPR, and should present an exciting event for the entire world-wide
biometrics research community.

IJCB 2011 is intended to have a broad scope, including advances in
fundamental pattern recognition techniques relevant to biometrics, new
algorithms and / or technologies for biometrics, analysis of specific
applications, and analysis of the social impacts of biometrics technology.
Areas of coverage include biometrics based on voice, fingerprint, iris,
face, handwriting, gait and other modalities, as well as multi-modal
biometrics and new biometrics based on novel sensing technologies.
Submissions will be rigorously reviewed, and should clearly make the case
for a documented improvement over the existing state of the art.
Experimental results for contributions in established areas such as voice,
face, iris, fingerprint, and gait are encouraged to use the largest and
most challenging existing publicly available datasets. Papers examining
the usability of and social impact of biometrics technology are

Important Dates:
