Banking on Biometrics Conference
Set for Dallas, March 24-26, 1998
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, September 27, 1997 - The "Biometric Digest"
announced its second annual conference, "Banking on Biometrics," set for
March 24-26, 1998. The action packed two day program will be held at the
Adams Mark Hotel in downtown Dallas, Texas.
The conference is designed for financial institutions - banks, credit
unions, savings & loan associations, card processors, vendors and
investors. The conference focuses on biometric applications for the
financial community. These include finger imaging systems, iris scan,
facial recognition, voice recognition and others.
In announcing the conference, Bill Rogers, publisher of the Biometric
Digest, said, "Our 1997 program was a first for the financial community.
The feedback was excellent with a very high percent of attendees saying
this should be an annual event. The conference will include beginners
programs for those who are new to biometrics along with workshops on
technical issues. We hope to double the number of vendors displaying
their products and services over last year."
Industry experts say the financial community will be one of the major
benefactors of biometric technology. Finger imaging applications are now
used by both credit unions and banks. ATM providers are moving to
install iris scan technology in ATMs. Voice recognition applications are
coming into telephone audio response systems.
"We are putting our program together and should have it completed within
the next few weeks. We will announce the formal agenda within the next
30 days," said Rogers.
The Biometric Digest is a monthly newsletter reporting on biometric
activities in both the commercial and government fields. For more
