Claus Vielhauer is a professor for IT Security at Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany and has an additional affiliation as the leader of the biometrics research group as part of the Advanced Multimedia and Security Lab at Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany. Formerly, he worked for the Multimedia Communications Lab (KOM) of Technical University Darmstadt, Germany, from 1999 to 2004, from where he also received his MSc and PhD degrees in electrical engineering. His research interests are in biometrics with specialization in multimodal and behavioral-based recognition, biometric cryptography and applications of biometrics to multimedia, as well as human-to-computer interaction (HCI). Additionally, he is elaborating methods of adopting similarity measurements and classification methods from biometric user authentication to related IT security problems such as digital watermarking, steganography, or IT forensics. He is the author of the book Biometric User Authentication for IT Security: From Fundamentals to Handwriting, published by Springer in 2006, and has a great number of additional book, journal, and conference publications in the areas of biometric signal processing, pattern recognition, HCI, and multimedia security. He has served as guest and associate editor for the Journal of Electronic Imaging and the EURASIP Journal on Information Security and additionally volunteers as a reviewer for renowned journals such as Multimedia Systems, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition Letters, and Pattern Analysis and Applications. Dr. Vielhauer has co-organized numerous conferences, special sessions, workshops, and tutorials, for example at ACM, IEEE, and SPIE conferences, and has served as a program committee member for many international conferences.
