IEEE Biometrics Council has six chapters worldwide and it is growing. The local biometrics chapters have proposed and organized a number of technical activities related to biometrics to serve local young researchers, academics as well as industrial professionals. They have also organized special sessions on new and specific biometrics areas in flagship conferences and international workshops. Details of the chapters are listed as follows:

February 17, 2008 – Formed IEEE Biometrics Council. The IEEE BoD approved establishment of the IEEE Biometrics Council (TAB approved November 18, 2007).

The field of interest (FOI) of the Council is the theory, design, and application of biometric characterization of human beings, based on physiological and/or behavioral features and traits, in particular for identification, identity verification, authentication, encryption, recognition, and medical diagnosis.

CHAPTERS

IEEE Biometrics Council has six chapters worldwide and it is growing. The local biometrics chapters have proposed and organized a number of technical activities related to biometrics to serve local young researchers, academics as well as industrial professionals. They have also organized special sessions on new and specific biometrics areas in flagship conferences and international workshops. Details of the chapters are listed as follows:
