Border control biometrics seminar

European Biometrics Forum : 29 October, 2009  (New Product)
The European Biometrics Forum is running a seminar in November discussing the global opportunities in the border management industry
Recent world events have highlighted the need for border security, and the use of biometric technology at the borders is at the top of the list of global strategies to be deployed for border control. Biometric Entry/Exit systems offer a solution to safe, controlled and efficient border crossings by land, sea and air. However, the use of the biometric technology for large numbers of travellers poses concerns for privacy and data protection.

On 4th November 2009, the EBF are holding a seminar entitled "Entry Exit: Global opportunities and Challenges", to look at this timely and topical area of biometrics. A panel of speakers who have been leading the debate will speak at the seminar. They include:

* Frank Paul, EU Commission, Unit Large Scale Information Systems DG JLS
* Bob Mocny, US DHS, International Keynote Speaker
* Ralph Markert, Interpol, Global Security Initiatives
* Monica Gariup, Frontex, EU Border Management Agency
* Tony Murphy, Daon, Ireland
* Cyrille Bataller, Accenture Technology Labs Europe
* Baroness Sarah Ludford, Member European Parliament,
* Benedicte Havelange, European Data Protection Supervisor
* Tom Marten, SITA
* Bernard Didier, Sagem Sécurité
* Gûnter Schumacher, EU Joint Research Centre, Institute for Protection and Security of the Citizen

The seminar topics will include:

* Policy Requirements - Making the right decisions now
* Real World Experiences - Lessons learnt from the coal face
* Thought Leadership - Key issues we need to consider
* Cutting Edge Research - Clever Thinking

Max Snijder, CEO of the EBF, says: 'Now, more than ever, it is important that decision makers at all levels meet with relevant representatives from the European Commission, governments, industry and citizen organisations. As a society we are at the verge of entering a new era of mass communication and transportation, while developing new generations of frameworks, systems and technologies which should accomodate this transformation. In many of these frameworks biometrics play a significant role. A role which we need to try to understand clearly in order to anticipate real life scenario's and societal impacts.'

The seminar will be held in the Radisson Blu EU Hotel, Rue d'Idalie 35, B-1050, Brussels commencing at 9am until 5:00pm on Wednesday 4th November 2009. A detailed agenda can be obtained upon request from Vivienne Bourke at the EBF.

Entrance Fees are Euro 295 (standard) and Euro 215 (EBF members/students) with Government/EC Representatives receiving free entrance.
