Journée commune GdR-ISIS et GdR-SI sur la biométrie

le jeudi 13 juin 2019, au CNAM, 292 Rue Saint-Martin, 75003 Paris
La biométrie est l'étude de méthodes automatisées d'identification et de reconnaissance de l'être humain fondées sur une ou plusieurs caractéristiques physiologiques et/ou comportementales. Parmi les traits caractéristiques physiologiques, on peut citer les empreintes digitales, le visage, la rétine, l'iris, la géométrie des mains et la voix, tandis que les exemples comportementaux incluent la signature, la démarche, les modèles dactylographiques (incluant la façon de taper un texte sur un clavier), la manière dont un individu interagit avec son smartphone, etc.
Le but de cette journée est de réunir des acteurs académiques et industriels pour aborder les besoins, les challenges et les récents développements de méthodes liées à la reconnaissance et l'identification biométrique mono / multi-modale, la protection des données et le respect de la vie privée.
Retrouver le détail de la journée sur le site du GdR SI et sur pour le GdR-ISIS pour plus d'information et pour vous inscrire.

Cyberworlds 2019

From October 2 to 4, 2019, the CyberWorld conference is organized at Kyoto, Japan.
Cyberworlds are information spaces and communities that immensely augment the way we interact, participate in business and receive information throughout the world. Cyberworlds seriously impact our lives and the evolution of the world economy by taking such forms as social networking services, 3D shared virtual communities and massively multiplayer online role-playing games.
Please refer to CyberWorld for more information and to register.
