Keynote Speaker

Prof. Raymond Veldhuis
University of Twente, The Netherlands

Raymond Veldhuis graduated from The University of Twente, The Netherlands in 1981. From 1982 until 1992 he worked as a researcher at Philips Research Laboratories in Eindhoven in various areas of digital signal processing. In 1988, he received the PhD degree from Nijmegen University on a thesis entitled Adaptive Restoration of Lost Samples in Discrete-Time Signals and Digital Images. From 1992 until 2001 he worked at the IPO (Institute of Perception Research) Eindhoven in the field of speech processing. Raymond Veldhuis is now a full professor in Biometric Pattern recognition at The University of Twente, where he is leading a research group in this field. The main research topics are face recognition (2D and 3D), fingerprint recognition, vascular pattern recognition, multibiometric fusion, and biometric template protection. The research is both applied and fundamental.

Senior Lecturer Richard Guest
University of Kent, UK

Dr. Richard Guest is Reader in Biometric Systems Engineering at the University of Kent. His research interests lie broadly within image processing and pattern recognition, specializing in biometric and forensic systems, particularly in the areas of image and behavioral information analysis, standardization and document processing. He has significant involvement with biometric standards development as Panel Chair of the UK BSI IST/44 Working Group on Biometric Technical Interfaces and as UK Principal Expert to ISO/IEC in this area representing the UK industrial, governmental and academic interests. He has over 100 peer-reviewed publications, acted as editor of 3 international standards and has obtained funding from UK EPSRC, ESRC, EU, charitable funds and industry. He is the Project Coordinator of the AMBER EU Marie Curie ITN on mobile biometrics systems.

Plenary Speaker I

Prof. Yasushi Yagi
Osaka University, Japan

Yasushi Yagi is the Executive Vice President of Osaka University in 2015. He received his Ph.D. degree from Osaka University in 1991. In 1985, he joined the Product Development Laboratory, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, where he worked on robotics and inspections. He became a research associate at Osaka University in 1990, a lecturer in 1993, an associate professor in 1996, and a professor in 2003. He was the director of the Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research at Osaka University from 2012 to 2015.

The studies in his laboratory focus on computer vision and media processing including basic technologies such as sensor design, and applications such as an intelligent system with visual processing functions. Some of our major research projects are: the development of a novel vision sensors such as an omnidirectional catadioptric system; biomedical image processing such as endoscope and microscope images; person authentication, intention, and emotion estimation from human gait, and its applications to forensic and medical fields; photometry analysis and its application to computer graphics; an anticrime system using a wearable camera; and 3D shape and human measurement using infrared light.

He is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Computer Vision, the Editor-in-Chief of IPSJ Transactions on Computer Vision & Applications and the Vice-President of the Asian Federation of Computer Vision Societies. He is a fellow of IPSJ and a member of IEICE, RSJ, and IEEE.
