IAPR/IEEE Winter School on Biometrics was Successfully Held in HKBU

The IAPR/IEEE Winter School on Biometrics (WSB) was held at Hong Kong Baptist University on 9-13 January, 2017. Jointly organized by the Department of Computer Science, Hong Kong Baptist University and the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences, the winter school attracted 50 participants, including professors and senior postgraduate students from world-wide tertiary institutions.

The 5-day winter school included lectures, poster session and social programme. To consolidate the fundamental knowledge of biometrics and share the latest biometric development, the scope of the course is designed to cover the topics which mainly include mobile biometrics, anti-spoofing, template protection, and fundamental of different biometric modalities. Since the topics are relatively new and challenging, the course is conducted by internationally renowned experts from all over the world.

Sixteen world-class scholars, including
  • Dr. Jian Jiang Feng of the Tsinghua University, China;
  • Prof. Jaihie Kim of Yonsei University, Korea;
  • Prof. Ajay Kumar of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong;
  • Prof. Brian Lovell of the University of Queensland, Australia;
  • Dr. Chen-change Loy of the Chinese University of Hong Kong;
