"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).

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...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
