"Mobile Payment and Security in the Cloud are two of the major challenges facing smart technologies, and authentication in particular, over the next five years. As CARTES is the industry's key event in terms of trends and innovative technological solutions, it was obvious to us that these fundamental developments had to take a central role at [CARTES 2012]," explains Isabelle Alfano, Director of the CARTES show.
The 2012 CARTES Exhibition and Conference, which was formerly known as CARTES and IDentification, will take place at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition centre in the French capital, from 6 to 8 November 2012.
On 12 June 2012, there will be a press conference for the launch of CARTES 2012 which will take place at the Pershing Hall in Paris, from 10am to midday. During this conference the new features of CARTES 2012 will be unveiled and a round table on the Interconnected Commerce and New Payments Landscape will be organised, where physical, electronic and mobile payments will be discussed.
On 5 November, the SESAMES Awards ceremony will take place. These awards reward the technical innovations that spearhead the chip-card, digital-security, secure-transactions, identification and contactless sectors. The SESAMES Awards are now deemed, by industry professionals, to represent uncontested global recognition for innovations in the smart-technology industry.
On 6 November 2012, the World Card Summit will take place. This is the inaugural conference of CARTES 2012 that will be attended by senior executives from leading smart-technology and digital-security companies.
The two key themes that will be discussed at CARTES 2012 — mobile payments and security in the Cloud — were chosen in response to current industry challenges.
Smartphone use grew in 2011, with a significant increase in the popularity of mobile-banking applications and an unprecedented number of initiatives in the mobile-payments field. However, there are numerous challenges still to be faced if such systems are to spread further. Close collaboration between various players involved in mobile payments, such as bankers, telephone operators, telephone and payment-terminal manufacturers, service suppliers, aggregators and merchants, is essential. The Mobile Payment Pavilion at CARTES 2012 will be specifically dedicated to mobile-payment stakeholders.
Security will be Cloud computing's priority in 2012. The exponential growth of Cloud services and the proliferation of connected portable devices are an excellent reason to revisit the confidence, security and interoperability issues relating to increasingly mobile access to data, applications and services in the Cloud. Companies involved in the smart security industry and in IT security, their suppliers and their partners will exhibit in CARTES' new area: Security in the Cloud.
India offers considerable development potential for digital security technologies with its major national financial-inclusion and biometric-identification projects, and has consequently been chosen as CARTES 2012's special guest country. An Indian pavilion, conference speakers and visitor delegations will bring developments in the country to the fore during CARTES 2012.
CARTES is the world's leading smart-technologies event dedicated to the latest trends and innovations in security, payments, identification and mobility. Each year, the trade show brings together 430 exhibitors, 79% of whom come from outside France, 20,000 visitors and 1,300 conference participants.
The CARTES network is made up of the leading international and regional exhibitions and conferences devoted to smart technologies. It was founded in Paris (France) in 1985 and has grown to become one of the world's leading events on security and payments.
CARTES events are organised by COMEXPOSIUM, the leading French-based professional trade-show organiser that offers a high level of service and premium quality standards for both exhibitors and visitors.
CARTES 2012, the leading smart-technologies event covering security, payment, identification and mobility, will be held at the Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition centre, in Paris (France), from 6 to 8 November 2012. The trade show will be the 27th CARTES event and will focus on India as its special guest country.
On 12 June 2012, there will be a press conference for the launch of CARTES 2012 that will take place in Paris (France). CARTES 2012 will provide the accommodation and travel for journalists wishing to attend. Journalists should contact Katherine Woods, Press Officer of the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London, for further information.
With 143 countries represented, 430 exhibitors and 140 conferences led by international experts, CARTES 2012 is the key event for all those involved in the smart-technology market.
CARTES 2012's latest news will be posted on its blog (www.blogcartes.com) and on the trade show's Twitter account (@_cartes).

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
