Program: http://biometrics.uniss.it
Registration: biometricsummerschool@gmail.com

What are the most up-to-date core biometric technologies developed in the field? What is the potential impact of biometrics in forensic investigation and crime prevention? How can biometrics cope with mobile applications? What are the most relevant issues in biometric standardization? What can we learn from human perception? What does it involve to integrate a biometric recognition system?

This school follows the successful track of the International Summer Schools on Biometrics held since 2003. In this 14th edition, the courses will mainly focus on new and emerging issues:

  1. How Biometrics will cope with the demand for mobile applications;
  2. How to exploit new biometric technologies in forensic and security applications;
  3. Standardization, evaluation and assessment of biometric and forensic applications.
  4. Biometric and Forensic identification and advanced research: What is next?

The courses will provide a clear and in-depth picture on the state-of-the-art in biometric verification/identification technology, both under the theoretical and scientific point of view as well as in diverse application domains.

The lectures will be given by 18 outstanding experts in the field, from both academia and industry.

An advanced feature of this summer school will be some practical sessions to better understand, "hands on", the real potential of today's biometric technologies.

Biometrics in Aviation

Date: 2017-06-12 Location: Lisbon

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB) in cooperation with IATA
Program | Registration

Biometrics, both for automated and computer-assisted processes, is becoming more important in the practice of policing, law enforcement (surveillance, intelligence, investigation and evaluation), immigration and border control due to growing phenomena such as mobility, migration, digital economy and cyber societies. Airports, airlines and governments are increasingly confronted with biometrics driven innovations. The e-passport has given an impulse to the development of so called e-gates (or ABC-gates), where verification based on facial recognition facilitates a semi-automated border crossing experience. Many countries have installed biometric equipment to register the biometrics data of incoming travelers. Airlines are working on paperless boarding. It is evident that biometric technologies have taken a key role in the facilitation of more convenient and secure passengers processing schemes. However, these developments are fragmented. There is a need for information sharing on best practices and lessons learned. A lack of standardization hinders the market uptake of these innovative solutions. Testing and certification is still an area that needs to be explored and developed. The seminar Biometrics in Aviation will discuss today’s developments in the perspective of the future of identity in an increasingly networked world.

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB)
Program | Registration

The seminar will reflect the trends and opportunities of biometrics in the financial market. It will be discussed how processes can be designed both convenient and privacy compliant. The speakers will provide you with their experience on how to best benefit of biometric technologies and solutions. Financial institutions get free entrance (lunch included).

The seminar presents a line-up of excellent international speakers, ranging from end users (who share their experiences with biometrics in their day to day applications) to experts who will bring you up to date with the state of the art in biometric technology advances. Speakers will focus on the underlying business cases and developments in mobile banking and financial transactions. They will share their experiences from a business perspective, touching important aspects such as process flows, added value, fraud reduction, implementation strategy and client experience.

Biometrics in Banking and payments will provide guidance on how biometrics can be used to optimize key aspects of the banking and payment processes, such as customer interaction, operational efficiency, fraud reduction and prevention. During the seminars we will reflect the many new opportunities arising from the gradual shift away from desktop/notebook computing towards smartphones, tablets and other portable devices, while sharing best practice of apps and web-based applications. You will learn about biometric solutions for in-branch and mobile environment and for internal and customer-facing usage. There will be presentations about how biometrics support mega trends such as personalization and location independent services. It will also be discussed how biometrics can be embedded into front end and back end processes.
