This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Conference on Biometric Authentication, ICBA 2004, held in Hong Kong, China in July 2004. The 104 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 157 submissions; also included are summaries of 3 biometric competitions on fingerprint verification, face authentication, and signature verification. The papers are organized in topical sections on face, fingerprint, iris, signature, speech, biometric fusion and risk analysis, and other biometric issues.
