FRONTEX: International Conferenceon Biometrics for Borders

FRONTEX is going to organise – next 9 and 10 October in Warsaw – a conference dedicated to the use of biometrics in the context of border control. This year’s thematic focus will be on morphing and its possible implications for border security. The conference seeks to support the objectives of the European Commission as outlined in the 2016 Action Plan to strengthen the European response to travel document fraud. Through the action plan the European Commission aims to strengthen R&D activities in the area of breeder documents and document verification, including addressing the issue of morphing, in the framework of the Horizon 2020 programme for Secure Societies 2018-2020.

In order to underline the importance of both technological innovations and possible abuse of technologies dealing with biometrics, an exhibition is planned as a side event on day 2 of the conference to connect end-users with technologies and to provide an informal networking environment for all stakeholders present.

The exhibition will go beyond the thematic focus of the conference and provide Industry showcasing new and existing technologies dealing with the use of advanced biometrics in the context of border control, and; Research community detailing relevant research projects focusing on the subversion/exploitation of biometrics and the development of associated tools and/or methods capable of detecting and/or defeating such attacks (or preventing them altogether).

The technology or project showcased does not need to have an actual application in current border controls, as long as speakers and exhibitors are able to showcase a technology or research project of potential relevance to the current or future border control domain. Topics may vary from solutions under development targeting morphing, to topics from the field of artificial intelligence/machine learning, for example deep-fake technologies (e.g. demonstrating biometrics vulnerabilities through reverse-engineering, methods of identifying editing/tampering, etc.), to name only a few.

 

Important deadlines: should you wish to exhibit during the conference, then please send  your offer to morphing@frontex.europa.eu  by 28 June 2019 (23:59 CET). You are kindly invited to include a description of the products/innovations you would like to showcase, as well as an estimation of the space required.

 

The received offers will be evaluated and selected based on their relevance to the theme of conference and in a way that ensures that different thematic areas are adequately represented. The outcome of the evaluation of the submitted offers will be announced no later than 12 July 2019.

 

Details on the venue as well as other logistical information will be sent only to participants who have successfully registered. No fees will be charged for registration and exhibiting space. Exhibitors will be asked to cover the costs of travel, their own accommodation and additional costs incurred in exhibit activities.
