Portland, USA, March 27, 2006 – Intertech-Pira Corporation, a leading conference producer and market research publisher who provides strategic information analyses pertaining to advanced materials and technologies, announces that its inaugural biometrics technology conference, Facial Biometrics in Documents, Imaging & Security, will be held on December 6th-8th, 2006 at the Crystal City DoubleTree Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. Intertech-Pira has hosted hundreds of conferences, inspiring nearly 200,000 executives, manufacturers, marketers, experts and end users of advanced technologies across North America, Europe and Asia since 1979. This conference will be followed by March, 2007’s AsiaMetrics conference in Shanghai, China.

The Facial Biometrics in Documents, Imaging & Security conference is designed to address the largest challenges faced when using facial biometric technologies in imaging, documents, and security applications, for both the public and private sector. Advances in solutions incorporating imaging and recognition technologies have resulted in improvements in airport security, computer vision, national border security, travel documents, network authentication, registration programs, surveillance, access-control applications, voting program integrity, handheld electronic device security, visas, ID theft prevention and document security. In addition to covering the current biometrics market and the latest technologies and applications, Facial Biometrics will also cover hurdles and innovations in ID technology; new standards and legislation; identification and authentication advancements; multimodal hurdles and achievements; computer vision and imaging; 3D imaging; shipping and packaging biometrics; opportunities for facial recognition technology in aviation; biometrics in banking and commerce; iris and retina scanning; sensor improvements; face capture and enrollment; neural network algorithms; confidentiality; data security; 3D-2D matching; feature extraction and matching; doing business with the government; and global opportunity.

Facial Biometrics in Documents, Imaging & Security will feature more than 25 expert speakers, two pre-conference seminars, a panel discussion, a “5 minute pitch” session, and an exhibition area. The summit will bring together key users, producers, component suppliers, manufacturers, vendors and end users of recognition and identification technologies. Participants will receive a thorough assessment of the integration of biometrics into imaging, document, and security technologies, including technological advances, new applications, government projects and standards, security advancements and process improvements. Participants will have ample opportunity to discuss industry issues and network with experts, leading biometrics executives, government officials, end users and professionals in a three-day open-forum format. Facial Biometrics in Documents, Imaging & Security serves as the summit for discussion on the research, testing, development, evaluation, and application of biometric-based personal identification and verification documents and computer systems and will promote at least 10 networking opportunities, including evening receptions, breakfasts, lunches and several breaks in the expansive exhibit area. Over 200 industry executives and technologists from leading organizations and government agencies in the areas of security, safety, aviation, healthcare, document security, banking & financial services, imaging, homeland security, telecommunications, law enforcement, government, computer vision, retail & electric commerce, and physical access control are expected to attend this international conference, which will be held in the security capital of the world, Washington, D.C.
