Workshop on Biometrics

Friday, March 21st, 2014
Universidad Católica de Chile, Campus San Joaquín, Edificio San Agustín


Biometrics research keeps rising rapidly, however, there are still significant challenges because state-of-the-art technologies have not yet reached high recognition performance in many real-world environments. For this reason, we organize a workshop in which participants can show applications, algorithms and challenges positioned at the frontier of biometrics. The works are presented by academic and private research organizations as well as government labs. 

09:50 – 10:00
