The BC Conference has established itself as one of the premier gatherings on biometrics. The September 2005 Biometric Consortium Conference will address the latest trends in biometrics research, development, testin and application of biometric technologies. It also plans to address the important role that biometrics can play in the identification and verification of individuals in this age of heightened security and privacy by examining biometric-based solutions for homeland security (airport security, travel documents, visas, border control, prevention of ID theft) as well as the utilization of biometrics in other applications such as point of sale and large-scale enterprise network environments. A special Research Session will include presentations of academic research and a Poster Session.

The Biometric Consortium Conference provides a forum to discuss government and commercial implementations and initiatives, recent advances of the technology as well as biometric business models. The conference will also examine ongoing standards developments, research and evaluation of biometric technologies.

The Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the National Security Agency (NSA), the DoD Biometrics Management Office (BMO), the National Biometric Security Project (NBSP), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), General Services Administration's Office of Governmentwide Policy, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and West Virginia Development Office (WVDO) are proud to co-sponsor this event.
