EAB Research Projects Conference (EAB-RPC) 2016

Date: 2016-09-19 (2016-09-20) - 10:00 (18:00) Location: Fraunhofer IGD, Fraunhoferstraße 5, 64283 Darmstadt, Germany

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB) in cooperation with Joint Research Center (JRC) and Fraunhofer IGD

The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) and numerous EU research projects, namely FIDELITY, FastPass, BEAT, FutureID, MobilePass, Eksistenz, PCAS, PIDaaS, ORIGINS, ABC4EU, INGRESS, HECTOS, BODEGA, OCTAVE, PROTECT and SpeechXRay are jointly organizing the 3rd EAB Research Projects Conference (EAB-RPC) to present research results and to discuss the benefits of this research for our European society. This third conference will present updates of the projects introduced in the first and second conference. New projects in the fields of border control, speaker identification, template protection and more will be presented. Experts from the biometric community will report about their results.

The European Agency for the operational management of large-scale IT systems in the area of freedom, security and justice (eu-LISA) and also the Directorate-General of Migration and Home affairs (DG Home) will be supporting the event by contributing keynote talks. Moreover both institutions as well as the European Agency for the Management of External Borders (Frontex) will discuss current and future research objectives in a panel discussion "Mind the gap – what research is needed for current and future operational biometric systems". DG Home will also provide an overview of current research projects and the future work programme in the field as supported by the Horizon 2020 "Secure Societies" challenge.

Motivation

Biometrics and Identity Management are key research topics that are currently investigated in a variety of EU projects running under the seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and in the Horizon 2020 research program. International research is dealing with innovative solutions for secure and privacy compliant biometrics and federated identity management. For the third time all major European research projects in the area of Biometrics and Identity Management will be provided with a single platform for information exchange and discussion. This will contribute to a stronger research community at European level and a stronger position for European R&D in an international context.

Entrance fees: normal: 360,00 € / EAB members: 240,00 € / Speakers: 120,00 €
