Program

   


 

BC2005 will address biometric-based solutions for Homeland Security, large scale applications for biometrics, biometric interoperability and performance, ongoing biometric standards development and adoption of these standards, evaluation of biometric technologies, user requirements, and technological issues and challenges to meet these requirements. The Research Symposium is again offered as part of the conference. Other topic areas: biometrics privacy and security and government and commercial implementations and initiatives. The tutorial: “Introduction to Biometrics” will be offered again this year as part of the conference.
