BIOSIG 2019 – 18th International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group

Date: 2019-09-19 - 2019-09-20 Location: Fraunhofer IGD, Fraunhoferstraße 5, 64283 Darmstadt, Germany

Organizer: GI Special Interest Group BIOSIG in cooperation with BSI, Fraunhofer IGD, JRC, CAST e.V. and IEEE

Biometrics provides efficient and reliable solutions to recognize individuals. With increasing number of identity theft and miss-use incidents we do observe a significant fraud in e-commerce and thus growing interests on trustworthiness of person authentication. Nowadays we find biometric applications in areas like border control, national ID cards, e-banking, e-commerce, e-health etc. Large-scale applications such as the European Union SmartBorder Concept, the Visa Information System (VIS) and Unique Identification (UID) in India require high accuracy and also reliability, interoperability, scalability and usability. Many of these are joint requirements also for forensic applications.

Multimodal biometrics combined with fusion techniques can improve recognition performance. Efficient searching or indexing methods can accelerate identification efficiency. Additionally, quality of captured biometric samples can strongly influence the performance. Moreover, mobile biometrics is an emerging area and biometrics based smartphones can support deployment and acceptance of biometric systems.

However, concerns about security and privacy cannot be neglected. The relevant techniques in the area of presentation attack detection (liveness detection) and template protection are about to supplement biometric systems, in order to improve fake resistance, prevent potential attacks such as cross matching, identity theft etc.

The BIOSIG 2019 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications.

The Norwegian Biometrics Forum (NBF) is an open platform dedicated to regular exchange of information and experience related to the field of Biometrics. The target of the group is the interdisciplinary discussion between research, technology developers, data privacy experts, governmental agencies and operators of Biometric Systems. In the regular meetings new applications, latest research results and products are presented.

Biometric Summit London 2019

Date: 2019-11-20 Location: 41 Luke Street, London, UK, EC2A 4DP, United Kingdom

Organizer: Goode Intelligence in cooperation with the European Association for Biometrics
Program: https://events.eventzilla.net/e/biometric-summit-london-2019-2138721683#CPMain_ctl00_eventschedule
Registration: https://events.eventzilla.net/e/biometric-summit-london-2019-2138721683

The Biometric Summit London 2019 on Wednesday 20 November follows on from the Summit in New York in Spring 2019 building on the success of the Biometric Summit London 2018. New for this Summit are further sessions and engagement on biometrics for digital identity verification, electronic Know Your Customer (eKYC), retail and IoT deployment.

Hosted by Rise London, the key themes of the event will be biometric technology and digital identity with the aim of bringing together speakers and delegates for a thought leading and educational event through enlightening talks, panels and workshops.

With up to 120 senior leaders from a range of sectors such as finance (including the FinTech community), retail, government, manufacturing, technology and telecoms, this power-packed summit provides plenty of opportunity for networking with peers and making new contacts. This is an outstanding opportunity to learn from experts and end-users, bringing together investors and buyers interested in discovering the latest innovation in biometrics and digital identity.

Biometric technology and digital identity specialists will be on hand with expert knowledge and case studies to share the latest innovation in these areas. This will enable you to deepen your understanding and help you make decisions on the best strategy to deploy biometric technology in your organisation. With industry attendees representing a mix of companies at various stages of development from private start-ups through to established, listed companies, there will also be advice, business acceleration and investment opportunities to explore.
