Special Issue description

Call for papers IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science Special Issue on Face Presentation Attack Detection


Face anti-spoofing recognition is a hot and challenging research topic that has received much attention from the computer vision and pattern recognition communities in the past. Owing to the development of deep learning and big data, recent advances of the related research have gained a lot. However, it is still challenging to aim at unknown spoofing attacks, cross-domain generalizations and multi-modal fusions in images and video sequences. This special issue focuses on face anti-spoofing tasks that might benefit from novel methods such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) or AutoML.

We invite paper submissions for the special issue on face anti-spoofing to be published in IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science (TBIOM). We welcome original research papers making theoretical and practical substantial contributions on face anti-spoofing in connection to other computer vision and machine learning topics, including, but not limited to:

  • Novel methodologies on face anti-spoofing detection in visual information systems.
  • Studies on novel attacks to biometric systems, and solutions
  • Meta learning for face anti-spoofing attack
  • zero-shot learning for face anti-spoofing attack
  • Deep learning methods for biometric authentication systems using visual information
  • Novel datasets and evaluation protocols on spoofing prevention on visual and multimodal
  • biometric systems
  • Methods for deception detection from visual and multimodal information
  • Face antispoof attacks dataset (3D face Mask, multimodal).
  • Deep analysis reviews on face anti-spoofing attacks
  • Generative models (e.g. GAN) for spoofing attacks
  • AutoML for face presentation attack detection
