Special Session on

“Real Time Biometric Solutions for Networked Society (RT-BioS 2010)”

in Conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on “Networked Digital Technologies” (NDT’10)
July 7-9, 2010
Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic


Call for papers

Biometric systems are considered as essential human pattern recognition systems that make individuals identification by determining the authenticity of specific measurable physiological or behavioral characteristics possessed by individuals. Biometric technologies are thus defined as the “automated methods of identifying or authenticating the identity of a living person based on a physiological or behavioral characteristic”. In today’s networked society seeks secured environment that brings security in fully automated airport entrance, ATM machines, high alert zones, border control, hospital management, online banking transaction, prevention of historical documents, computer login and criminal investigation departments. Identification and verification of individuals through biometric automated system can be one of the solutions to these problems. Biometrics technology is used in real time environment that addresses these security issues. For person identification and authentication, various physiological and behavioral characteristics are used such as face, fingerprint, voice, signature, iris, palmprint and hand geometry, ear, etc. Sometimes, biometric itself not able to meet these criteria on security issues along. To strengthen security using biometrics traits, various cryptography techniques are also embedded with biometrics.

The special session will serve as a platform to cover the advanced aspects and approaches of biometric technologies in networked society for real time environments.

Topics of interest

Original and unpublished high quality research papers are solicited from the authors on advanced topics of biometrics. The topics include but are not limited to:

  • Face, finger, ear, eye, iris, retina, vein pattern, palm, gait, foot, exotic
  • Biometric template update, feature extraction and matching 
  • Biometric cues and performance measurements
  • Multibiometrics fusion
  • Biometric system architectures for evidence integration 
  • Fusion based verification and identification techniques 
  • Data normalization techniques in biometrics fusion
  • Multi-classifiers fusion and score weighting schemes in biometrics
  • Machine vision and soft computing techniques in biometrics fusion 
  • Biometric database indexing and searching techniques 
  • Online and offline biometric systems 
  • Performance modeling and resource computation in biometrics systems
  • Security and reliability assessment for multi-biometrics systems


Submission of Special Session Papers

Authors are invited to submit their paper in the Springer format (submitted paper should not exceed 6 pages including illustrations, results, references) format as an attachment (PDF or DOC format) by email to the special session chair at : drkisku at ieee.org / drkisku at gmail.com. In addition, they should submit it using the online system so that they can get regular updates about the conferences.

Authors should format the papers according to the Springer template. The detailed instruction for authors is available at Information for LNCS Authors

The style files and templates are available for users of LaTeX and Microsoft Word at the conference website:

Authors of accepted papers will be expected to present their work at the special session. All attendees must register for the NDT 2010 conference.

Questions about submissions or any other issues must be directed to

drkisku at ieee.org / drkisku at gmail.com.

Review Process

Manuscripts will be reviewed by Technical Program Committee. All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, significance, soundness and clarity. At least two referees will review each paper proposal submission under a double-blind peer-review process.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings with the regular papers published by Springer LNCS. Proceedings will be distributed during the conference.

Extended versions of the selected papers will be published in the following peer reviewed journals.

1. Journal of Digital Information Management (JDIM)
2. International Journal of Information Studies (IJIS)
3. International Journal of Green Computing (IJGC)
4. International Journal of Web Applications (IJWA)
5. Journal of E-Technology
