Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global market size of biometric technology has experienced significant growth, and this trend is expected to continue expanding in the coming years. This is attributed to the increasing utilization of biometric characteristics, e.g., face, fingerprint, voice, etc., in consumer electronics and automotive sectors, fueling a strong demand for user authentication, identification, and security and surveillance solutions. Hence, pattern recognition, a rapidly evolving field, drives the advancements in machine learning and extends its influence to computer vision, including biometrics for signal/image/video processing and analysis.

Topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Machine learning (ML) and embedding learning using deep learning (including lightweight architecture), and enhanced ML algorithms for biometrics and pattern recognition.
  • Biometrics, all physiological and behavioral attributes, including multimodal biometrics, and other relevant object recognition tasks, particularly those in the realistic open-set deployment setting.
  • Real-world and future artificial intelligence (AI) and ML systems/applications/surveys, such as security and monitoring, forensics, continuous authentication, law enforcement, aviation security, healthcare, transportation, smart homes, etc.
  • Fairness, accountability, transparency, and ethical (FATE) principles for AI and ML systems, especially biometrics.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
