Expert Comment on Phuket standards meetings

The ISO/IEC JTC1 SC37 subcommittee on biometrics sets international standards related to biometrics. Since its inception in 2002, the group has met every 6 months in a different location, depending on which national body (member country) has offered to host the meetings. The January working group meetings were hosted by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology of Thailand (MICT), in cooperation with the Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) in Phuket.

Delegates from colder climes enjoyed the balmy weather (when not tied to their chairs in the meetings!) The article below by Expert Contributor, Cathy Tilton, contains highlights from the week of meetings.
