Description (current as of January 2021): This is an ongoing discussion of training and procedures for human iris image examiners who might be called upon to give testimony in court. Discussions to date have touched upon a variety of topics including: aspects of forensic iris, processes/tools for human examination using visible features, and interpretation of the results reported by machine based algorithms. The discussions are held monthly using WebEx. The current schedule is the first Tuesday of each month at 1200. The usual discussion facilitator is James R. Matey, james.matey [at] nist.gov (james[dot]matey[at]nist[dot]gov). Participants are free to recommend topics for inclusion in the agenda for each month and to make presentations to the group on topics of common interest. Participants have access to a private GitHub repository for the exchange of materials relevant to the discussions. Participants include government staff members, vendor staff members and members of the academic research community. This is not a standards setting body though the documents prepared by the discussion group participants may be submitted, when appropriate, to such bodies for consideration in their discussions.
