Extensive conference programme lined up for ID WORLD

ID World : 05 August, 2008  (Technical Article)
This year's ID WORLD show in Milan during November to cover citizen ID programs, biometrics and asset tracking in a packed conference agenda
Wise Media, organizer of the ID WORLD International Congress, has disclosed the preliminary conference agenda for ID WORLD 2008. The annual conference and exhibition on advanced automatic identification technology will once again opens its doors in Milan, Italy, at the Milanofiori Congress Centre on November 18th, 19th and 20th, 2008.

The seventh ID WORLD International Congress will offer one of the most comprehensive conference program yet: fourteen conferences organized in streams that will enable each attendee to seek out exactly the information he is looking for in a context that will maximize his experience. Over 150 presentations will bring the audience up to date on the state of technology, the legal and business issues involved, and the opportunities that automatic identification offers to enhance security and tracking.

This year's event will debut the ID WORLD Investors Forum, an exclusive initiative for entrepreneurs, executives, investors, industry and financial analysts involved in automatic identification, designed to provide business insights and networking opportunities.

Designed around an intensive one day conference program and focused networking initiatives, the ID WORLD Investors Forum will focus on valuation, exit strategies, IPOs, investment opportunities, hot regions, emerging technologies, capital investments, gross margins and ROI.

The ID WORLD International Congress will feature again this year three 3-day conference streams dedicated to three particularly hot topics: Citizen ID Programs, Transportation Hub Security and Total Asset Visibility.

The seventh Electronic Passport Forum will outline the roadmap for government driven ID programs and highlight the issues and opportunities related to the introduction of state-of-the-art ePassports and visas, as well as the new national IDs, driver¹s licenses and eHealth cards.

The Transportation Security Forum returns for the third time following its highly successful inauguration in Paris in February 2007 and will explore how identification technologies can improve airport and port security infrastructure.

The Asset Tracking Forum, meanwhile, returns for the second time at the ID WORLD International Congress and will focus on object tagging in supply chain management. Special attention will be given to applications for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

Today, smart cards and biometrics are robust, convenient, cost effective technologies used to build first class security infrastructures to identify a broad range of users (citizens, consumers, employees,...). Due to their broad adoption all around the world, knowledge of these technologies is a must for every professional dealing in self-service and security technologies. The conference on Secure Identification will provide insight into these topics.

Short-range wireless identification technologies such as RFID and NFC are pioneering a world where objects are part of an invisible ubiquitous computing network. Since consumer electronics, mobile devices and the PC industry are adopting these standards, their knowledge is a must for every professional dealing with ICT. The conference on Wireless Identification will provide insight into these topics.

The four vertical conferences at the ID WORLD International Congress will continue the in-depth investigations carried out at last year¹s event with an individual analysis of the impact that automatic identification technologies are having in specific market segments. The focus will fall this year on the areas of Textile, Transactions, Livestock and Ticketing, with dedicated conferences featuring keynote presentations from end users, as well as speakers from most the prominent suppliers, who will outline the current status of technologies in their particular fields.
