In the last decade, research on the automated recognition of people has 
evolved to cover a large number of applications. From the early days, 
when security was the driving force behind biometric research, today’s 
challenges go far beyond security. Machine learning, Image 
understanding, Signal analysis, Neuroscience, Forensic science, and 
other disciplines, converged in a truly multidisciplinary effort to 
devise and build advanced systems to facilitate the interpretation of 
signals recorded from individuals acting in a given environment. This is 
what we simply call today “Biometrics”.

For the last twelve years, the International Summer School on Biometrics 
has been closely following the developments in science and technology to 
offer a cutting edge, intensive training course, always in-line with the 
current state-of-the-art.
What are the most up-to-date core biometric technologies developed in 
the field? What is the potential impact of biometrics in forensic 
investigation and crime prevention? How can biometrics cope with mobile 
applications? What are the most relevant issues in biometric 
standardization? What can we learn from human perception? What does it 
involve to integrate a biometric recognition system?

This school follows the successful track of the International Summer 
Schools on Biometrics held since 2003. In this 12th edition, the courses 
will mainly focus on new and emerging issues:

• How Biometrics will cope with the demand for mobile applications;
• How to exploit new biometric technologies in forensic and security 
applications;
• Standardization, evaluation and assessment of biometric applications.
• Biometrics technologies and advanced research: What is next?

The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the 
state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, 
both under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in 
diverse application domains. The lectures will be given by 18 
outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry. An 
advanced feature of this summer school will be some practical sessions 
to better understand, “hands on”, the real potential of today’s 
biometric technologies.


*Participant application*

The school will be open to about 50 highly qualified, motivated and 
pre-selected applicants. Phd students, post-docs, researchers, police 
officers and professionals are encouraged to apply. The lectures will be 
given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and 
industry.
The expected school fees will be in the order of 1,500 € for Phd 
students and 2,000 € for others (subject to change). The fees will 
include full board accommodation, all courses and handling material. A 
limited number of scholarships, covering a portion of the fees, will be 
awarded to Phd students, selected on the basis of their scientific 
background and on-going research work. Precedence will be given to 
members of the COST Action IC1106, and active members of IAPR
and IEEE. The scholarship request form can be downloaded from the school 
web site http://biometrics.uniss.it.
Phd students, researchers and post-docs are encouraged to submit a short 
paper (6 pages maximum) on their recent research activity. Selected, 
unpublished papers may be published, either in an edited book, or in a 
journal special issue.
Poster boards will be also available to all participants to display 
their current research topics.

*Advance pre-registration is strictly required by all applicants by 
February 15th  2015.*

*School location*

The school will be hosted by Hotel El Faro (http://www.elfarohotel.it/) 
in the Capo Caccia bay near Alghero, Sardinia, one of the most beautiful 
resorts in the Mediterranean sea. The hotel El Faro has a recently 
renovated conference center, fully equipped for scientific events. The 
structure is beautifully immersed into the Capo Caccia bay. The entire 
structure, as well as the surroundings, proved to be a perfect 
environment for the school activities.
