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.”

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...
What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
