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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
