The Biometrics Institute has confirmed the full conference program for its June 27, 2013 Technology Showcase Europe event, set to take place at the Royal Bank of Scotland in London.

Headlining this year’s event are Prof Chris Hankin, Director, Institute for Security Science and Technology; Dr Itiel Dror, University College London; and Andrew Renison, Forensic Science Regulator and Surveillance Camera Commissioner (UK).

Topics to be covered throughout the event include Security and Integrity, distributed cognition between humand and technology, regulations of surveillance cameras and the implications for biometrics, policy and professional expectations, identity management, among others.

In addition, say the event coordinators, this year’s event will feature an interactive discussion round, in which attendees can submit comments and questions for discussion. Now in its second year, this event is now an annual gathering of the industry. Nearly 70 delegates attended in 2012 and this number is expected to grow.

Registration for the Technology Showcase Europe is approximately US $600 (£400). Members pay US $285 (£190) and full-time students are free. Registration can be done over the phone or online. More information is available on the conference website.

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, In January of this year, the Biometrics Institute Board introduced a new structure, adding 7 sub-committees to the organizational chart to better reflect the engagement and activities the institute provides.

The institute has also recently announced a vulnerability assessment workshop to take place April 29, 2013 in London. Registration for this workshop is free.
