Biometrics team to present at international crime science conference.

University Of Kent : 13 July, 2007  (Company News)
University of Kent research team continues its quest to build relationships in biometrics with presentations at Crime Science conference.
Scientists, practitioners and manufacturers developing the latest technologies and strategies for increasing security and reducing crime will get together at the International Crime Science Conference, 16-17 July 2007 at the British Library, London.

Among them will be members of the biometrics research team at the University of Kent who, as members of the IRIS (Integrating Research and Industrial Biometric Services) Network, will facilitate a series of discussions under the banner 'Biometrics: Interfacing with the public'.

Discussion topics will include: 'Biometry and forensic sciences: a same quest for indentification?' and 'Can older adults use biometric fingerprint systems?'.

Professor Michael Fairhurst, Head of the Department of Electronics at Kent and co-founder of the United Kingdom Biometrics Institute (UKBI), said: 'The nature of this event falls very much within the remit of the IRIS Network which is all about building relationships in biometrics. We therefore hope to facilitate collaboration between different sectors of the biometrics community and encourage a debate from a holistic point of view.'

The IRIS Network consists of a founding group of partners and experts from six core academic institutions (University of Kent, University of Hertfordshire, University of Nottingham, University of Sheffield, University of Southampton and University of Surrey). IRIS also has the full support of the Intellect Association for Biometrics (iAfB), which represents the biometrics industry within the UK and is an active and highly respected trade organisation for the industry.

IRIS is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and is co-ordinated by the University of Kent.

The International Crime Science Conference is organised by the UCL Centre for Security and Crime Science with input from a number of UK National Research Council networks, including the IRIS Network.
