At Biometrics 2012 [Westminster, London, 29-31 October 2012], more than 50 top international speakers will convene to reveal how biometric technology such as fingerprint, facial and iris recognition, and the latest technologies such as DNA and odour, is being used to identify individuals.

From DNA results in 90 minutes to profiling viewers for advertising, Biometrics 2012 reveals the latest generation of biometrics.

At Biometrics 2012 [Westminster, London, 29-31 October 2012], more than 50 top international speakers will convene to reveal how biometric technology such as fingerprint, facial and iris recognition, and the latest technologies such as DNA and odour, is being used to identify individuals, in particular for large-scale government projects, law enforcement and border control. Away from governmental applications, biometrics are set to become more mainstream in customer facing applications such as mobile phones and within the social network with the rise of ‘soft biometrics’. The 3-day conference programme features numerous case studies from around the world, takes a close look at the results from the latest trials and tests, features live demos and explores topical concerns. It is supported by a large exhibition.

Topical tracks which may be of particular interest are highlighted below. Details of all presentations are listed at: http://www.biometrics2012.com/programme.asp
