US Online Conference 2020

21 September-22 September

Download Programme

With this ever-changing world, we’re facing the same – and new – challenges in biometrics. Bans, privacy and demographic differences have been joined by contactless biometrics, hygiene issues and a new focus on ethical and responsible use. We have created two exciting mornings of discussion. We will run these meetings in our usual interactive format with a mix of expert presentations, conversations and panels. 

Our online meetings have all demonstrated a highly engaged audience with incredible interaction in the chat forum.  The recording of the discussions and chat log will be available to all attending members post-event.

Join us on 21-22 September:

9:00 EDT (New York)
14:00 BST (London)
