Download Agenda

Hosted by  

Following the successful ‘Biometrics and GDPR’ seminar in Brussels in 2018, we are returning to Europe’s capital to discuss how to ensure the responsible and ethical use of biometrics. We are delighted that Microsoft has agreed to host this meeting in Brussels.

Closely aligned to the Institute’s strategy of providing thought-leadership and guidance to its community, this event will be providing an excellent platform for open, off-the-record discussion. There will be an opening address from Microsoft followed by a presentation from the Biometrics Institute about its Ethical Principles for Biometrics. This will be followed by two discussion sessions, the first a panel with a mix of influential presenters discussing how we can shape the future of biometrics responsibly. This will be followed by an open, interactive session “ask the panellists” where members have the opportunity to engage directly with the experts on the panel.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Roger Baldwin, Biometrics Institute Advisory Council
  • Christian D’Cunha, Office of the European Data Protection Supervisor
  • United Nations OCT
  • Microsoft

At this meeting we are bringing together:

  • Regulators and privacy advocates
  • Key International and European institutions
  • Biometrics and industry experts
  • Private sector organisations and government

Microsoft will host a Networking Breakfast at 9.30am to kick off the event and close with a Networking Lunch 1.00pm (close of event at 1.45pm).

Registration is free on a first come-first served basis but priority will be given to members (one per organisation) with non members placed on a waiting list.
