Advanced Identification Systems 2006 is a first year success with more than 200 attendees and 20 exhibitors

2007’s event scheduled for November 28-30 in Washington, DC

Washington, DC – Intertech-Pira’s inaugural Advanced Identification Systems 2006 conference took place December 6-8, 2006. The event featured 28 expert presentations, a panel discussion, and an exhibit hall, all designed to break new ground in the discussion and advancement of identification systems, solutions, products, and document/ID technology by bringing together leading industry experts, government buyers, system integrators, and technology-minded organizations.

Sponsored by Sagem Morpho, NEC America and Digimarc opened the event by co-instructing a half-day seminar entitled Taking Biometrics into New Markets. The afternoon seminar featured Sagem and the Keyser Group co-producing a discussion entitled Biometric Sensors, Legacy Access Control Systems, and Match On Card, with a wine and cheese reception afterwards.

Day 2 featured 15 presentations, and a wide range of audience reaction. Joseph Atick’s (L-1 Identity Solutions) presentation The Trifecta of Trust: From Badges to Biometrically Enabled Secure Credentials drew praises and crowds, while Steve Riley’s (Microsoft) The Seven Laws of Identity raised eye brows due to its challenging, yet thought provoking, views on privacy and feasibility. Because of the variety of subjects and points-of-view, each presentation was a catalyst for discussion and audience reaction. The day concluded with a panel discussion and a large reception in the exhibit area.

The final day of Advanced Identification Systems 2006 was its best, including extremely well-reviewed presentations from Rick Lazarick of Computer Sciences Corporation (Application of Multibiometric Fusion Techniques), Guy Swope of Raytheon (A Systems Approach to Large Scale System Development), Samir Nanavati of the International Biometric Group (Biometric Performance Certification and Comparative Testing), David Temoshok of the US General Services Administration (HSPD-12 Implementation), and Arun Hampapur of IBM (Smart Surveillance Systems).
