CARTES 2008 to focus on e-transactions and USA

08.05.2008
CARTES & IDentification, the leading trade show on digital security and smart-card technology, will be held from 4 to 6 November 2008 in Paris-Nord Villepinte. Organisers expect to welcome over 20,000 visitors, as well as 520 exhibitors and 1,700 conference delegates. In 2008, the show’s focus will be on e-transactions, ID management and the USA.

Following the focus on Japan in 2007, the United States will be this year’s country under the spotlight at CARTES & IDentification. The USA is a pioneer in this field in terms of transport, payment, exchanges and loyalty applications.

The USA leads in the field of contactless technology — more particularly its deployment via multiple applications, such as electronic documents or payment cards. Besides, the USA is actively involved in the secure electronic-transactions market and has, as a result, tended to get other players to adopt American standards as the new technological standards of reference.

The United States will be spotlighted during the congress and will have a dedicated pavilion in the heart of the trade fair. There will also be a focus on various activities related to the US market, together with the presence of major decision makers linked to the American market.

CARTES 2008 is giving pride of place to a particularly dynamic sector — identification. This was demonstrated last year by the successful launch of the IDentification event, which runs alongside CARTES. IDentification is dedicated to secure technology and biometrics. It will bring together all the players offering solutions and technology linked to biometrics, document security, authentication, physical or logic access control, encryption, RFID, and e-government procedures.

Following its successful introduction in 2007, CARTES & Identification 2008 will once again feature a Mobile Transaction TechZone, held in partnership with the NFC Forum. Boosted by the development of contactless and multi-application technology, mobile transactions are giving the various players new applications and new perspectives — NFC, RFID, M2M, transaction security and kiosk technology, for example. The following companies participated in this Mobile Transaction TechZone in 2007: Innovision, Legic, MasterCard, Nexpert, Nokia, NXP Semiconductors, Stolpan, Toppan Printing and USA Technologies.

The three-day Congress that is held during the event is an unrivalled source of information and know-how, featuring many presentations of international innovations. All the subjects covered relate to chip cards or identification, providing a broad and accurate view of the market. The conferences present today's most innovative projects and serve as a platform for interchange and contact between more than 1,700 visitors and speakers. The opening World Card Summit conference will also welcome an exceptional line-up of keynote speakers sharing their points of view and their visions of the market.

The Sesames Awards 2007 are open to all companies in relevant sectors, be they CARTES & IDentification exhibitors or not. The Awards are an exceptional tool for the promotion of innovative projects, and crown, in a very concrete way, several years of R&D effort. The Awards are decided by a jury of experts, and will be given at a prestigious ceremony in Paris on the day before the opening of CARTES & IDentification 2008. Products presented by the finalists will be on display in the Sesames Area located in the heart of the trade fair.

About CARTES

CARTES & IDentification is the leading trade show for digital security and smart-card technology. The 2008 event will be held from 4 to 6 November, at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, which is to the north of Paris (France).

Im Focus: Fraunhofer IDMT demonstrates its method for acoustic quality inspection at »Sensor+Test 2019« in Nürnberg

From June 25th to 27th 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau (Germany) will be presenting a new solution for acoustic quality inspection allowing contact-free, non-destructive testing of manufactured parts and components. The method which has reached Technology Readiness Level 6 already, is currently being successfully tested in practical use together with a number of industrial partners.

Reducing machine downtime, manufacturing defects, and excessive scrap

Im Focus: Successfully Tested in Praxis: Bidirectional Sensor Technology Optimizes Laser Material Deposition

The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. At LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be demonstrating how well bi-directional sensor technology can already be used for Laser Material Deposition (LMD) in combination with commercial optics at booth A2.431.

Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. In particular, its »bd-1«...

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified

The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...
