  • Our main activity is our regional biennial conference, and now the 2017 conference website biometric2017.org is up (if not yet fully complete). The next regional conference of the Australasian Region, titled “Biometrics by the Border”, will be held in the conference facilities of the Mantra on Salt Beach, Kingscliff, which is located south of Queensland's Gold Coast, just across the border into NSW. The dates of the conference are 26-30 November.

  • The scientific programme committee has finalised keynote speakers. The all-female line-up celebrates achievements by women in the field of biometrics. We are excited to confirm that Professors Elisabetta Carfagna (University of Bologna, Italy), Di Cook (Monash University), Rachel Fewster (University of Auckland), Sonja Greven (LM University Munich, Germany), Louise Ryan (University of Technology Sydney), and Jean Yang (University of Sydney) are sharing their latest insights in their respective fields. Conference workshops are currently being finalised and we expect registration and abstract submission to open in early June.

  • Also, do not forget our very own Facebook group, IBS-AR which we invite all members to join.
