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.
We currently expect presentations on algorithm tests, image capture tests, security tests, image quality standardization and tests, border control, presentation attack, demographic effects, ageing, de-identification, morphing, and government activities in the US, EU and other countries. Jonathon Phillips from NIST, is chairing a session on human capability. We will update this list as the program is assembled.
Registration is open now. A first agenda will be posted below in late September 2018.
