Student writing notes and watching a webinar. The IEEE Biometrics Council supports a Winter School and a Summer School on Biometrics, as well as bi-monthly webinars. The Winter School on Biometrics has been organized in Shenzen, China, since 2018, and the Summer School on Biometrics in Alghero, Italy, since 2009.

The Schools will include lectures, hands-on sessions, and strong interactions among participants and leading experts from around the world.

Given the quick advances on biometric technology and identity sciences, the main goal of the schools is to give the participants the technological and methodological tools to develop their research activity and to build professional connections.
