Workshop on Advances of Mobile and Wearable Biometrics, Call for Papers

We are happy to announce the 
Workshop on Advances of Mobile and Wearable Biometrics, 
held within the 
ACM International Conference on Mobile Human-Computer Interfaces (MobileHCI), 2023. 
The workshop will allow both in person and online participation 
and it will take place on 
September 26, 2023, 
in Athens, Greece.


Short description:

The rapid digitalization of society, together with the pervasiveness
of mobile and wearable devices, is creating unprecedented
Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) scenarios. Mobile devices such as
smartphones, tablets, and wearables have high computing and
connectivity capabilities, and they are provided with several sensors
that are able to acquire a vast amount of biometric information, for
purposes such as security (user recognition systems), health and
fitness (activity trackers), user profiling (social media and
e-commerce), etc. The availability of such a massive amount of
information, and the widespread use of mobile and wearable biometric
systems have raised concerns among the technical people as well as the
general public regarding aspects such as the performance, reliability,
protection of privacy, bias, misuse, regulations, and their impact on

In light of the above, it is therefore of paramount importance to
design feasible and effective solutions, compliant with new
specifications accounting for social good. The workshop will highlight
the recent developments in the evolving areas of mobile and wearable
biometric systems in relation to such concerns.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-  Physiological biometrics (fingerprint, face, iris, vein, etc.);

-  Behavioral biometrics (signature, keystroke, gait, etc.);

-  Cognitive biometrics (ECG, PPG, EDA, EEG, etc.);

-  Attacks at biometric systems;

-  Biometric template protection schemes;

-  Privacy preserving solutions;

-  Multibiometric recognition systems;

-  Machine learning with limited computational resources;

-  Usability, interfaces, and human factors;

-  Database collection;

-  Ethical, legal and psychological perspectives.

We invite submissions in three formats:

    Position papers / extended abstracts: 2 pages (excluding
    references). They should describe new, previously, or concurrently
    published research or work-in-progress

    Journal paper presentations. They should be in the format of the
    full paper or an extended abstract (2 pages, excluding

    Full length papers: 4-8 pages (excluding references). They should
    describe new work that has not been previously published, accepted
    for publication, or submitted for review at another venue during
    our review period.

See here for more information.

The submission deadline is on June 15th, 2023. Accepted submissions
will be distributed in the workshop proceedings via The
authors will retain copyrights of the submissions, hence they can
resubmit revised versions to any other conference or journal.

Depending on the number of full-length papers we receive, we might
edit a Q1/Q2 journal special issue (for example Pattern Recognition
Letters) inviting extended versions of the best workshop submissions
presenting new work.
