Biometric Conference Meets Sept. 22-24 in Florida

28.08.2009
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Security Agency (NSA) are cosponsoring the Biometric Consortium Conference 2009 on Sept. 22-24 at the Tampa (Fla.) Convention Center.

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.”

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
