The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has just announced its ninth symposium and exhibition on machine readable travel documents, biometrics and border security.

The symposium, MRTD2013, is set to talk place in Montreal at the ICAO headquarters from October 22-24, 2013.

According to the organization, this year’s symposium will focus on the benefits of implementing Automated Border Control systems based on ICAO standards and specifications, as well as the benefits of using effective inspection toolks like the ICAO Public Key Directory for border control. It will explore a range of considerations that shape ABC developments, including newly-emerging technologies, trust, reliability, non-intrusiveness, biometrics, costs, privacy and human rights.

The symposium will also explore the role of inter-agency and cross-border cooperation in securing border integrity, including the role of ABCs and electronic data-sharing.
