The main objective of IDENTITY is to enhance international and European collaborations in research, entrepreneurial development and innovation within the area of multimedia and biometric forensics.
To this end, IDENTITY has the following specific objectives:
1. To promote knowledge transfer among research institutions and private companies about methodologies for identification within a forensic context. Two main lines of identification are considered, imaging device identification for multimedia forensics, and people identification, for biometric forensics.
The 5th International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics will be held at The University of Warwick, UK, from 4-5 April 2017. For more information visit IWBF 2017.
