Call for Papers FUZZ-IEEE Special Session "Fuzzy Logic in Biometrics"


The aim of this special session is to present interdisciplinary state-of-the-art results in the fields of Biometrics and Fuzzy Logic and to get together researchers that are active in these two areas.


In short, since the partitioning of comparisons space in genuine, imposter (and eventually undecidable pairs) is f-granular, giving a biometric decision using today’s state-of-the-art biometric systems means, in fact, giving a fuzzy biometric decision. In a simplified view, the cumulatives of the imposter and genuine score distributions are the fuzzy indicators of the two (or three) f-granules, whereas the point of equal error define a defuzzification in which the security risks (expressed as False Accept Rate) and user comfort risks (expressed as False Reject Rate) are balanced. When speed-precision balance is at stake, regardless the biometric traits used in today’s state-of-the-art biometric systems, analyzing biometric decision with fuzzy instruments and processing the biometric data with illustrates the direct connection and causality between imprecision and speed in defining digital identity – on the one hand, and the security or comfort risks assumed in these systems – on the other. From this perspective, the special session aims to provide an opportunity for international researchers in the field of Biometrics and Fuzzy Logic to share their original work or/and review the recent advances in better defining the fuzzy biometric digital identity toward minimizing the security risks and comfort risks Submissions reflecting both new theoretical advances and new highly experimental works using the largest publicly available biometric databases are especially encouraged.


Suggested topics of FLB special session include but are not limited to
  • Fuzzy techniques for iris / palm / face / eye / ear / fingerprint / behavioral:
  • detection;
  • segmentation;
  • understanding (essential features detection / definition);
  • encoding;
  • template matching;
  • template classification;
  • Fuzzy scoring schemes for
  • multi-sample based biometric systems;
  • multi-classifier fusion in biometrics;
  • multi-biometrics fusion;
  • Crisp/Fuzzy Biometric Theory and Practice:
  • Aging,
  • Verification,
  • Identification,
  • Fusion,
  • Fuzzy Extractors,
  • Fuzzy Vaults,
All of the above topics are considered for both online and offline biometric systems, as appropriate.
