The Biometric Consortium Conference has established itself as one of the premiere gatherings on biometrics. This conference will address the latest trends in biometrics research, development and application of biometric technologies. The conference addresses the important role that biometrics
can play in the identification and verification of individuals in this age of
heightened security and privacy concerns by examining biometric-based solutions for homeland security (airport security, travel documents, visas, border control, and 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. The BC conferences provide a forum to discuss recent technology advances, new initiatives, standards, technology evaluation efforts, as well as biometric business models and market
strategies. It will address ongoing national and international standards development efforts and adoption of biometric standards, research and evaluation of biometric technologies, user requirements, and technological issues and challenges to meet these requirements. It will also address
biometrics privacy and security in government and commercial implementations and initiatives.

Two and a half days of presentations, seminars and panel discussions with the participation of internationally recognized experts in biometric technologies,system and application developers, IT business strategists, and government and commercial officers. Multiple-track conference, technology seminars and
