The Biometrics Institute has recently announced several new speaker additions and updates leading up to its Biometrics 2014 event, set to take place October 21-23, 2014 in London.

Among the latest announcements, Samsung has signed on and a representative from the company will present on the digital experience and the future of identity at Biometrics 2014.

“We are extremely excited to announce Samsung’s participation as a keynote speaker at the conference. The impact on how mobility is changing identity management will be an important discussion,” Isabelle Moeller, Chief Executive of the Biometrics Institute and Chair of the Biometrics 2014 programme said.

According to the conference website, keynotes will be given by Samsung, Shine360°, UK Home Office Biometrics Programme, the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience and V2 Ltd.

This year, the annual conference – organized by the Biometrics Institute and Elsevier — promises a focus on academic research and biometric innovation, mobile biometrics, government, border management, law enforcement, payments, biometrics in developing economies and the privacy debate.

Registration rates increase after July 2014.

The Biometrics 2014 technology exhibition starts on October and the group has planned a series of free seminars to run alongside the exhibition for visitors. These events are available on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the Biometrics 2014 website.

According to the group, the Biometrics Institute aims to promote the responsible use of biometrics by bringing together users, vendors, academics and privacy experts. Its subcommittees explore different facets of the biometrics discussion and contribute to the broader biometrics research effort.
