Advances in Biometrics 2015

Biometrics provides efficient and reliable solutions to recognize individuals. Nowadays we find biometric applications in areas like border control, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, e-health etc. Large-scale applications such as the European Union Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy and also reliability, interoperability, scalability, system reliability and usability. Many of these are joint requirements also for forensic applications. Besides papers from the entire biometrics community, this special issue contains selected, revised papers of the 14th 2015 International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group (BIOSIG’15) , presented in Darmstadt, Germany, 2015.
