EAB-RPC 2022 – EAB Research Projects Conference 2022

Date: 2022-09-12 (2022-09-14) - 14:45 (16:00) Location: Fraunhofer IGD, Fraunhoferstraße 5, 64283 Darmstadt, Germany

Organizer: The European Association for Biometrics (EAB) with the contribution of eu-LISA through its Governance and Capabilities Unit, the support of DG HOME of the European Commission, Fraunhofer IGD and Halmstad University.

To ensure the health and safety of all participants of the conference, all participants are required to perform a daily self-test. The first to be conducted at the porter’s office of Fraunhofer IGD. Self-tests will be provided on site. Please send and email to secretariat if you have any questions or concerns.

Note: If you are not yet an EAB-member, please consider to register for membership first (starting from 95,00 € per year). You then can register for the EAB-RPC as an EAB-member for only 290,00 € instead of 435,00 €, which means an overall saving of 50,00 €!

The 9th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference is organised by the European Association on Biometrics (EAB) with the contribution of eu-LISA through its Governance and Capabilities Unit, the support of DG HOME of the European Commission, Fraunhofer IGD and Halmstad University.

The conference is currently the largest event on research funded by the European Union in the area of Biometrics and Identity Management. Over the previous successful editions, EAB-RPC has become the main forum in Europe where attendees can simultaneously: promote research carried out in biometrics, forge new links and networks, and identify the appropriate partners for possible future project applications. Last year’s edition welcomed over 100 participants from academia, industry and public institutions.
