NIST is pleased to announce the IFPC 2018, which is focused on all technical factors affecting the deployment and use of high performance face recognition applications, including applications, standards, advanced and rapid capture, quality assessment, age and ageing effects, demographic effects, datasets, their preparation, training and tuning, presentation attack detection, non-cooperative uses, accuracy measurement, and performance tests.
Sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, the conference aims to assemble a set of speakers from across the globe involved in face recognition development, procurement, deployment and operations. The overarching goal is to bring greater maturity to face recognition by improving performance, transparency, and trustworthiness. The organizers welcome proposals for technical or policy presentations focused on any technical factors, problems, and mitigations that influence face recognition operations and applications.
2018-11-20: The final program is linked below. It is organized into topical areas addressing the use of face recognition including: Human roles and capability, privacy, demographics, standards, passports and border control, capture, security and morphing, and testing.
The IFPC 2018 is organized by NIST in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, National Physical Laboratory, and European Association for Biometrics.
