THE EVENT ON BIOMETRICS AND IDENTITY IN EUROPE
The need for understanding and exploiting the current and emerging technologies and services for the automated recognition of human identity is of increasing importance to the economic and social welfare. It deserves a concerted, multidisciplinary and sustained effort. The European context is unique for its diversity, interdependence, heritage and values. It creates special requirements and opportunities for the development of biometric technologies and services to maximise the benefit for the citizens and to protect society from any possible adverse side effects.
The European Biometrics Symposium engages stakeholders from all European countries including the European Commission and the European Parliament. It brings together a pan European network of national contacts points and platforms from governments, industry and academia, and provides a program that appeals to common needs.

Entrance fees: normal: 275,00 € / EAB members: 75,00 €
