Intelligent Biometric Systems for Secure Societies

Submission Deadline: 30 September 2020

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Intelligent Biometric Systems for Secure Societies.

Recent discourse in security domains points to the emergence of intelligent biometric systems as some of the most potent authentication systems for government agencies, border surveillance, anomaly detection, and medical data protection. New and emerging biometric research spurred scientific debate and empowered innovations in on-line security, e-banking, healthcare, and collaborative spaces, to name a few.  This Special Section on Intelligent Biometric Systems for Secure Societies in  IEEE  Access  will  focus  on  novel  biometrics  knowledge  representation  theories, methodologies, applications and technological implementations, aimed towards ensuring smarter, safer and more secure societies. Particular emphasis will be put on real-world and industrial applications supported by experimental or empirical studies.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Intelligent biometric-based authentication protocols
  • Intelligent biometric system architectures
  • Biometric-based identity and trust management
  • Cloud-based biometric identification
  • Cognitive biometric systems
  • Biometric intelligence from social media
  • Social behavioral biometrics
  • Machine learning and deep learning for biometrics
  • Multi-modal biometrics
  • Information fusion for reliable decision-making
  • Biometric-based digital rights management
  • Quality of biometric data
  • Security of biometric databases
  • Biometrics and online security
  • Biometric template protection and privacy
  • Mobile biometrics
  • Biometrics-based healthcare
  • Emerging biometrics

We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility and downloads of articles.
