Organisers of the next-generation human identity conference and exhibition, connect:ID 2016, have just launched a far-reaching agenda. Issues such as identity fraud, privacy protection, mobility, biometrics and next-generation credentials run through the heart of the program, which has more than 100 speakers.
The event – organised by Science Media Partners and the International Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA) – takes place March 14-16, 2016, at the Walter E Washington Convention Center, Washington DC.
The program reveals two influential Congressmen as latest additions to the keynote line up. They will be addressing the audience on critical issues such as border security, biometric Entry-Exit and security in the aviation system.
