Biometrics Research Network Goal

The study of Biometric features is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary field, incorporating theory and algorithms from the field of Digital Signal and Image Processing along with standard Pattern Recognition methods, in order to accurately identify a person. Various applications use biometric features as the primal or secondary evidence to confirm someone's identity. Biometrics are mainly used in Security and Surveillance applications. Recently however, Biometrics are expanding in a wide range of applications other than security. Medical diagnosis and surgery prediction are some examples. Biometrics Network focuses in the development of new algorithms and methods as the product of collaboration among different but complementary departments. The launch of Biometrics Network will bring together scientists from different disciplines, while it is expected to motivate individual groups to develop the spirit of cooperation. In summary, Biometrics Network Contribution is expected to be:

1. Cultivate a spirit of Corporation among individual teams

2. State of the art algorithm development

3. Treat the problem of Biometry as separate scientific problems

4. Utilize the experience from different but complementary sciences

5. Study the effectiveness of several biometric features

6. Study the impact of Biometrics in everyday life


Physics Department

Physics Computer Vision Logo Electronics Laboratory (ELLAB) initiated in 1968 at the Department of Physics at University of Patras. Since then ELLAB is an active laboratory in research and education. Part of ELLAB main research interests are Computer Vision, Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition and Information Fusion in Satellite data. Among ELLAB' s research teams the SIMG (Signal Image and Multimedia Group) and IRIDA (Interpretation of Remote Information Development & Application) consisted from 40 researchers, including faculty, PhD's, Graduate students. More precisely main research interests are described above analytically: 1. Digital Image and Video processing, including clustering, segmentation, multispectral color and texture analysis , video analytics, scene recognition and video summarization Furthermore, Pattern Analysis and Recognition (e.g. Feature extraction and selection), Neural Networks, Pattern Classification, Data Organization and Biomedical applications. 2. Databases, Digital libraries as 2D/3D features, content based image and video retrieval, database organizations and visualization, content semantic description, advanced feature descriptors and video and image similarity measures. 3. Computational Intelligent methodologies for multidimensional Signal and Image Processing, Computer Vision Signal and Video understanding. Development of interactive environment allowing a human-computer interaction for information extraction and management from large scale image and video databases. 4. Biometric human identification from signatures, face, eye movements and gait. Visit Electronics Laboratory Page
