IEEE International Conference on Biometrics, Identity and Security (BIdS)

General Chair: Terrance Boult, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs

BIdS is co-located with the Biometrics Consortium Conference in order to provide a unique venue in the community to bring together academic, industry, and government scientists along side system practitioners and programmatic personnel needed to shape next-generation systems. The goal is to foster exchange of biometrics identity and security ideas and issues across this interdisciplinary group. To support this goal, BIdS Conference is introducing an unique format, seeking the "best of" recent work which will be combined with highly selective original work. BIdS is organized & sponsored by the IEEE Biometrics Council.

The conference is organized into the following tracks:
