We would like to invite your participation in the ICB-RW (International 
Challenge on Biometric Recognition in the Wild). ICB-RW is an 
international competition integrated in ICB 2016 (The 9th International 
Conference on Biometrics). Moreover, the seven best performing 
approaches will be published as a special issue of a top-ranked journal 
(IEEE Intelligent Systems), which further justifies the importance of 

Guest editors of the special issue:

- Hugo Proença (Department of Computer Science, SOCIA Lab., IT-Instituto 
de Telecomunicações, University of Beira Interior.)

- Mark Nixon (School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of 

- Michele Nappi (BIP_Lab : Biometric and Image Proc. Lab, University of 

ICB-RW description:  The deployment of video surveillance cameras has 
grown astonishingly in the recent years, raising the interest for 
automated surveillance systems capable of performing human 
identification. However, these scenarios are typically harsh for 
recognition purposes, and are usually denoted as "wild" scenarios. With 
a view to provide a benchmark dataset for biometric recognition “in-the-
wild”, the QUIS-CAMPI database ( has been 
acquired using a master-slave surveillance system. This dataset will be 
used to promote an international competition on biometric recognition in 
the wild, the ICB-RW (, whose primary goal is to 
push forward the performance of biometric recognition methods in real 
world scenarios.
