The School Courses 

The school courses will cover all main aspects of multimodal biometrics including a view of several modalities and integration strategies. The biometric modalities covered during the courses include:

  • Algorithms for face data analysis (2D and 3D)
  • Iris-based personal authentication;
  • Fingerprint data collection and processing;
  • Speaker recognition;
  • Signature recognition;
  • Analysis of posture and gait.

The lectures on integration strategies will cover several aspects including:

  • Novel sensors and their application;
  • Data and algorithm level integration;
  • Analysis of data streaming;
  • Analysis of 3D data;
  • Evaluation and assessment strategies;

The course will also cover issues related to system integration, biometric data protection and standardization according to the systems currently being developed and the recommendation established by the international standardization bodies.

The classes will be held during the week in two sessions (morning and afternoon) with a coffee break in the middle of each session. The course timings will be arranged to allow some leisure and free time for the students to take advantage of the nice environment.

A special session will be held to allow the students to present their recent research outcomes related to biometrics.
