About IJCB 2023

The IEEE/IAPR International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB) is the premier international forum for research in biometrics and related technologies. It combines two major biometrics conferences, the IEEE Biometrics Theory, Applications, and Systems (BTAS) conference and the International Conference on Biometrics (ICB), and is made possible through a special agreement between the IEEE Biometrics Council and the IAPR TC-4. IJCB 2023 is the 7th iteration of this major joint event and will be held in Ljubljana (Slovenia), between 25-28 September 2023 as an in-person conference.
