This workshop will focus on privacy issues surrounding biometric technologies and applications helping to understand key concerns and trends, including:

  • Impact of biometrics on privacy
  • Privacy protection technologies
  • Gaps in knowledge and practice

We will together reflect upon the many new threats and opportunities arising from the rapid increase in the channels of biometric data capture (e.g. sensors on mobile devices) and processing capabilities. The one day workshop will bring together various stakeholders from amongst end users, technology developers, researchers and legal experts to discuss the serious challenges that these developments present and explore together ways for addressing them.
