The mission of the IEEE Biometrics Council is to advance, promote and coordinate work in the field of biometric technology and applications throughout IEEE, and to expand IEEE's role in this interdisciplinary field.

The Council's fields of interest include the theory, design, and application of biometrics based on physical and/or behavioral features and traits for identification, verification, encryption, recognition and medical diagnosis.

The Council promotes technical activities, sponsors technical meetings and sessions, publishes periodicals, promotes educational activities, develops standards, and engages in any other activity defined within its fields of interest.
