Special Session: Recent Advancement on Ocular Biometrics
Still, there are various open, unexplored, and unidentified challenges in ocular biometrics. Moreover, area of research is a fundamental problem in biometrics with broad economic (upcoming market growth of biometrics will enjoy annual growth rate of over 150%, more demand of ocular biometrics), social (secure mobile banking applications, secure surveillance, forensics applications, border control, etc.), scientific impact, etc. (development of detection, segmentation, characterization, identification algorithm in computer vision among others).
Therefore, this subject of research should receive more multidisciplinary effort from signal processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, and information fusion domain. Organising dedicated workshop, specials session can be helpful to attend multidisciplinary effort. Incidentally, no such event has been organising in the recent course of time. Consequently, due to the overwhelming success of a recent special session hosted on Ocular Biometrics on Visible Spectrum (OBVS 17) in conjunction with IJCB 2017, we plan to host this a special session with a wider scope to push forward and document the recent advancement in ocular biometric as a whole. Therefore, the goal of this special session is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in this area of biometrics and to address a wide range of theoretical and practical issues related to systems based on this subject and record the recent advancements on ocular biometrics.
