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 (
