Aims & Scope

The field of biometric recognition - automated recognition of individuals based on their behavioural and biological characteristics - has now reached a level of maturity where viable practical applications are both possible and increasingly available. The biometrics field is characterised especially by its interdisciplinarity since, while focused primarily around a strong technological base, effective system design and implementation often requires a broad range of skills encompassing, for example, human factors, data security and database technologies, psychological and physiological awareness, and so on. Also, the technology focus itself embraces diversity, since the engineering of effective biometric systems requires integration of image analysis, pattern recognition, sensor technology, database engineering, security design and many other strands of understanding.
