    Fusion is a popular practice to combine multiple sources of biometric information to achieve systems with greater performance and flexibility. In this paper various approaches to fusion within a multibiometrics context are considered and an application to the fusion of 2D and 3D face information is discussed. An optimal method for fusing the accept/reject decisions of individual biometric sources by means of simple logical rules is presented. Experimental results on the FRGC 2D and 3D face data show that the proposed technique performs effectively without the need for score normalization.
