The National Institute of Standards and Technology is holding the Biometric Consortium's fall conference, BC 2003, to showcase recent advances in the field and examine technological and security issues facing the biometrics industry.

Speakers will include executives from the biometrics industry, university researchers and representatives of federal agencies ranging from NIST to the National Security Agency.

The conference will include a special session on research that will address topics such as the societal and political implications of deploying biometric systems, ways to measure effectiveness of various technologies, the challenges raised by countermeasures and spoofing, and how biometric systems are starting to be deployed in some elementary and high schools.

The conference will take place September 22-24 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, VA. It will include more than 70 biometric technology exhibits.
