The IEEE conference series on Biometrics: Theory, Applications & Systems (BTAS) is the premier international conference in biometrics. The conference series started in 2007 and the BTAS conferences play an important role in shaping scientific, academic, and higher-education programs on all aspects of biometrics.


BTAS 2015 will be held in the September 8 - 11, 2015 time period in Arlington, Virginia  (Washington DC area).


BTAS 2015 scope is broad, including advances in signal and image processing relevant to biometrics, advances in pattern recognition and statistical techniques relevant to biometrics, new algorithms and technologies for biometrics, and analyses of the social impacts of biometrics technology.


BTAS 2015 topics will include biometrics based on voice, fingerprint, iris, face, handwriting, gait, and other modalities. Multi-modal biometrics, soft biometrics, new biometrics based on novel sensing technologies, and biometrics for mobile-devices will receive particular attention. Papers examining usability and social impacts of biometrics technology are encouraged.


BTAS 2015 program will be single track with oral and poster presentations. Submissions will be rigorously reviewed, and should make the case for a documented improvement over the existing state of the art. Experimental results for contributions in established areas such as voice, face, iris, fingerprint, and gait are expected to use the largest and most challenging existing publicly available datasets.
