IJCB 2017: International Joint Conference on Biometrics

October 1 - 4, 2017, Denver, Colorado, USA

The International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2017) combines two major biometrics research annual conferences, the Biometrics Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS) conference and the International Conference on Biometrics (ICB). The blending of these two conferences in 2017 is through special agreement between the IEEE Biometrics Council and the IAPR TC-4, and presents an exciting event for the entire worldwide biometrics research community. This is the third such joint conference, following IJCB 2014 in Clearwater Florida and the first IJCB 2011 in Washington DC. This conference is a result of major worldwide consensus to join the two major biometrics meetings and to establish IJCB as a venue for presenting biometrics research results of highest quality.
