Special Issue "Biometric Sensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Interests: biometric recognition (cross-spectral face recognition, multispectral counter spoofing); object detection (concealed object detection); computer vision (image classification)
Interests: computer vision; biometrics; surveillance
Biometric recognition systems are becoming increasingly popular. Measuring the physical or behavioral properties of a subject and detecting spoofing attacks require specific sensors operating across a wide spectrum of radiation. While some biometric modalities require simple sensors to capture samples, others use complicated equipment. These sensors may either output the raw signal or additionally convert the raw signal to the feature domain to distinguish individuals.
This Special Issue aims to highlight advances in biometric sensing as this relates to biometric recognition. MDPI’s Sensors solicits paper submissions and aims to bring together researchers and application developers on any of the critical issues involved. This Special Issue will cover a wide range of topics including works on new approaches to biometric sensing, multimodal sensors, biometric sensors’ performance assessment, as well as new concepts for vulnerability detection.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
