IAPR/IEEE Winter School on Biometrics 2018 was Successfully Held

The IAPR/IEEE Winter School on Biometrics 2018 (WSB2018) was held in Shenzhen on 29 January to 2 February, 2018. Jointly organized by the Department of Computer Science, Hong Kong Baptist University, the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences and College of Computer Science and Software Engineering, Shenzhen University, the winter school attracted 90 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
