The Biometric Consortium Conference focuses on biometric technologies—methods to identify humans using one or more intrinsic physical or behavioral characteristics—for national defense, homeland security, law enforcement, identity management, border crossing, electronic commerce and other applications.
The conference offers two and a half days of presentations, seminars and panel discussions with internationally recognized experts in biometric technologies, system and application developers, IT business strategists, and government and commercial officers.
Attendees—including policy developers and decision-makers, government and industry executives, information technology users and developers, law enforcement officials, systems integrators and researchers—will be able to hear and discuss management and implementation issues across a broad spectrum of government agencies.
Keynote speakers include the Department of Defense’s director of defense research and engineering and chief technology officer, Zachary J. Lemnios; John M. (Mike) McConnell, senior vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton and former Director of National Intelligence; and Louis E. Grever, executive assistant director, Science & Technology Branch, Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In addition to federal agency-related tracks, there will be sessions on the role of biometrics in health care, biometrics in education and training, biometrics in cyber security, biometric standards, international activities in biometrics and biometric-enabled intelligence. This year, the First IEEE International Conference on Biometrics, Identity and Security (BIdS) will be co-located with the Biometric Consortium Conference. This conference is being organized and sponsored by the IEEE Biometrics Council.
The Biometric Consortium Conference will include a number of separate workshops including “Virtual Identity – the Rise of the Avatars and the Shadow Internet,” “IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional Program,” “Biometrics Testing & the Emergence of Biometric Laboratory Certification,” “Emerging Biometrics” and “Biometrics 2020 – A Needs-Based View of How Large-Scale Biometric Architectures Will Evolve Over the Next 10 Years.”

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
