Biometrics technology is rapidly being adopted in a wide variety of security applications such as electronic and physical access control, electronic commerce, digital rights management, homeland security and defense. Cloud computing is a new computing paradigm with special emphasis on distributed system architecture and big data managing and processing methods. Along with the rapid development of personalised service and large-scale data exchange, biometrics technology will be deeply embedded into cloud computing.

The goal of this special issue is to focus on the key technologies for biometrics technology-based cloud security, present a set of methods and technologies for security development, share high-quality resources and data based on cloud computing, help build innovative and efficient cloud platforms, and to open up new pathways for theory and practice in security data-share based on biometric technologies.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 7th International Symposium on Intelligence Computation and Applications (ISICA 2015), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
