Call for Proposals - IJCB 2025
IEEE Biometrics Council invites proposals to host the 2025 edition of
the International Joint Conference on Biometrics, preferably around
IEEE IJCB is the premier international forum for research in
biometrics and related technologies, combining two major, the IEEE
Biometrics Theory, Applications, and Systems (BTAS) conference and the
International Conference on Biometrics (ICB), and is made possible
through a special agreement between the by the IEEE Biometrics Council
and the IAPR TC-4. IJCB is intended to have a broad scope, including
advances in the fields of signal processing, machine learning, deep
learning, computer vision, statistical/mathematical techniques,
ethical and privacy frameworks, system security, databases, and legal
policy, that are relevant to biometrics.
The 2022 edition of IJCB was organised in Abu Dhabi, United Arab
Emirates, and the 2023 edition in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The conference
is financially sponsored by the IEEE Biometrics Council and
technically co-sponsored by IAPR TC-4.
· Draft proposal for initial feedback by September 1, 2023.
· Full proposals by September 15, 2023.
· Evaluation results will be returned by October 5, 2023.

costs of the venue, suggested hotel(s) and their cost(s),
accessibility for travel and example travel costs, public
transportation and access from nearest airports. If there is a local
biometrics community, please mention.
· Hybrid/virtual attendance: plans about allowing virtual
participation, in case this is considered. We strongly urge you to
consider a fully in-person conference.
· Conference plans: plans for the program (technical program,
special sessions, invited speakers, reception and banquet, etc.),
events beyond the main conference (workshops, tutorials, tours, etc.).
What is planned to be similar or different from previous IJCB
· Budget: a tentative proposed conference budget with
projections for different numbers of participants (150, 200, 250).
Expected registration fees, potential sponsors, IEEE administrative
expenses and contingency for unexpected expenses.
All communications, including request for information and bid
submission, should be sent to the IEEE Biometrics Council, VP
