** Submissions **
The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and should be no more
than 8 pages in IEEE FG 2017 paper format. The submitted papers should
present original work not currently under review elsewhere and should
have no substantial overlap with already published work. Accepted papers
will be included in the Proceedings of IEEE FG 2017 & Workshops and will
be sent for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore digital library.

A special issue on "Biometrics in the Wild" that will build on the BWild
workshop series will also be organized in Image and Vision Computing.

To goal of this workshop is to present the most recent and advanced
work related to biometric recognition in the wild. Submitted papers
should clearly show improvements over the existing state-of-the-art
and use the most challenging datasets available. We are interested
in all parts of biometric systems ranging from detection, landmark
localization, pre-processing, and feature extraction techniques to
modeling and classification approaches capable of operating on biometric
data captured in the wild. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

- Biometric recognition in the wild (face, ear, gait, palms, iris, 
- Biometric detection in the wild (face, eyes, ears, body, …),
- Soft biometrics in the wild,
- Context-aware techniques for biometric detection and recognition,
- Landmark localization in the wild,
- Robust machine learning for biometrics in the wild,
- Normalization techniques for recognition in the wild,
- Multi-modal biometrics in the wild,
- Novel databases and performance benchmarks,
- Privacy protection and de-identification of biometric identifiers,
- Spoofing of biometric systems,
- Deep learning approaches for unconstrained biometric recognition,
- Related applications.

** Date and Venue **
The workshop will be held in conjunction with the 12th International 
Conference on Automatic Face
and Gesture Recognition (IEEE FG 2017) in Washington DC, USA on either 
May 30th or June 3rd, 2017 (TBD).
