The International Conference on Speech and Computer, SPECOM, is a regular event organized since 1996 and attracts researchers in the area of computer speech processing, multimodal interfaces and applied systems for telecommunication, robotics, intelligent and cyberphysical environments.
Special session on:
“Real-Life Challenges in Voice and Multimodal Biometrics”
Complex passwords or cumbersome dongles are now obsolete. Biometric technology offers a secure and user friendly solution to authenticate and have been employed in various real-life scenarios. This special session seeks to bring together researchers, professionals, and practitioners to present and discuss recent developments and challenges in Real-Life applications of biometrics. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Biometric systems and applications;
- Identity management and biometrics;
- Fraud prevention;
- Anti-spoofing methods;
- Privacy protection of biometric systems;
- Uni-modalities, e.g. voice, face, fingerprint, iris, hand geometry, palm print and ear biometrics;
- Behavioral biometrics;
- Novel biometrics;
- Ethical and societal implications of biometric systems and applications.
