Minta Martin Professor of Engineering Rama Chellappa (ECE/UMIACS/CS) delivered the keynote address at the fourth annual Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Workshop on Automatic Identification Advanced Technologies (AutoID 2005) on October 18, 2005, at the University at Buffalo. The talk, titled "Biometrics for Remote Surveillance: Recent Advances in Face and Gait-Based Person Identification," focused on methods of recognizing individuals from a surveillance camera, an extremely important security application for crowded public environments, such as airports or train stations.

AutoID 2005 is the only international conference that IEEE holds on biometrics, the science of identifying individuals based on their physical or behavioral characteristics. Biometrics research has become crucially important for developing technologies to strengthen homeland security in the United States.
