Workshop on biometrics and mobility

Date: 2015-04-14 (09:00-16:30) Location: Restaurant Olympen (aka “Lompa”), Grønlandsleiret 15, 0190 Oslo (entrance next to restaurant, 3rd floor)

Organizer: EEMA Nordic Region/Norstella eID Interest Group in cooperation with the European Association for Biometrics EAB

The future is mobile, and mobile devices have a range of possibilities for biometric sensors. The combination of these two technology trends may be the future of authentication solutions and the key to individuals' ubiquitous and seamless access to services and information. Join Norstella, EEMA and our international top level expert speakers to get a picture of both what is to come and what industry can deliver today. We aim at a highly interactive workshop format; join us in round table discussions on privacy issues and other implications.

The eID Interest Group of Norstella (the Norwegian foundation for eBusiness and Trade Procedures) runs regular workshops on eID‐related topics. The current workshop marks the start of a co‐operation with EEMA (the European Association for e‐Identity and Security) with the aim of establishing a Norwegian/Nordic regional interest group under the EEMA umbrella.
