Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biometric recognition has become a burgeoning research area due to the industrial and government needs for security and privacy concerns. It has also become a center of focus for many authentication and identification applications in the civil and forensic fields. This Special Issue aims to solicit original research papers, as well as review articles focusing on recent advances in biometrics and its applications. We are inviting original research work covering novel theories, innovative methods, and meaningful applications that can potentially lead to significant advances in biometrics.

In addition, the authors of the papers which will be presented at the 3rd International Workshop on "Recent Advances in Biometrics and its Applications" that we are organizing within the framework of the 2019 42nd International Conference on Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP) are invited to submit their extended versions to this Special Issue of the Journal Electronics after the conference. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles, with at least a 50% extension of new results. There are no page limitations for this journal.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Biometrics based authentication and identification;
  • Physiological and behavioral biometrics (e.g., finger, palm, face, eye, ear, iris, retina, gait, handwriting, voice, etc.);
  • Biometric feature extraction and matching;
  • Signal, image, and video processing in biometrics;
  • Advanced pattern recognition in biometrics;
  • Machine learning and deep learning in biometrics;
  • Fusion techniques in biometrics;
  • Soft biometrics;
  • Multimodal biometrics;
  • Security and privacy in biometrics;
  • Big data challenges in biometrics;
  • Online biometric systems;
  • Embedded biometric systems;
  • Emerging biometrics;
  • Related applications

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
