Deadline: April 15, 2022

The IAPR Technical Committee on Biometrics (TC-4) and the IEEE Biometrics Council (IEEE-BC) are seeking proposals for hosting the 2023 International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2023) anywhere in the world. A committee established by IAPR TC-4 and IEEE-BC will evaluate all proposals by May 15, 2022.

The International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB) combines two major biometrics conferences – International Conference on Biometrics (ICB) and Biometrics Theory, Application and Systems (BTAS) conference. IJCB is a premier research conference focused on all aspects of biometrics. It is intended to have a broad scope, including advances in the fields of signal processing, machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, statistical/mathematical techniques, ethical and privacy frameworks, system security, databases, and legal policy, that are related to biometrics.

Similar events were conducted in 2011 (, 2014 (, 2017 (, 2020 (, 2021 ( and have proved to be a success as evidenced by the number of paper submissions and delegates in attendance. A similar event is being organized in 2022 as well (

  • Host organization
  • Details about Organizing Committee and Program Committee Chairs
  • Venue and dates (verify possible conflicts)
  • Accommodation arrangements
