Cross-Domain Biometric Recognition Workshop

In Conjunction with IEEE Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision (WACV) 2018

March 15, 2018

Lake Tahoe, NV/CA


Workshop on Cross-Domain Biometric Recognition (CDBR)

co-located with

IEEE Winter Conf. on Applications of Computer Vision

March 15, 2018, Lake Tahoe, NV/CA.

The workshop on Cross-Domain Biometric Recognition (CDBR) will be held in conjunction with IEEE WACV 2018 in Lake Tahoe, NV/CA on March 15, 2018. This workshop is among the first to solicit proposals and provide a platform to bring together the biometric recognition and domain adaptation communities to address the challenge of integrating next generation biometric systems with legacy biometric databases. This workshop will focus on domain adaptation technology and applications to cross-domain biometric recognition. Cross-domain technology includes methods for matching source data from one domain with target data from another domain (e.g., infrared to visible face, cross-wavelength iris, 3D-to-2D fingerprint). The workshop will bring together Government & industry representatives, law enforcement agencies and academics for this emerging area of research.

The topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Sensors (visible, infrared, polarimetric, LiDAR, and emerging sensing technologies)
  • Face detection in the HFR scenario
  • Fiducial point detection / face alignment in HFR (in infrared, thermal, sketches)
  • Face recognition at a distance
  • Infrared (near-infrared, thermal) to visible face matching
  • Face sketch (hand sketch, forensic sketch) to visible face recognition
  • Cross-wavelength Iris (matching across IR sub-bands)
  • Visible-to-NIR Iris recognition
  • Touch to touchless fingerprint recognition
  • 3-D to 2D fingerprint recognition
  • Cross-Domain Biometrics applications
  • Surveillance, Law enforcement applications
