BiometriX 2008

June 2008 News

smart x central intelligence and Technews Publishing have announced the introduction of the BiometriX Symposium, which will be launched this year as part of a mutually beneficial partnership agreement. The conference will be held on 29 July at Southern Sun, OR Tambo International.

Both parties have extensive knowledge of the uses and applications of biometric technology having worked in complementary spheres of the industry and have recognised the need to put on an exclusive symposium on the subject matter in South Africa. By jointly hosting this event, they aim to provide delegates with an holistic view of the technology, its various guises, applications and best practice advice for adoption in the future.

smart x central intelligence operates within an international network of professional associations concerned with smart technologies, and is the only professional association for the industry covering southern Africa. The aim of smart x is to make its members aware of the developments taking place in the industry both in South Africa and internationally.

"We are aiming to provide an informative, productive symposium aimed at high-level delegates that are working with, or observing, the various types of biometric technology," says Carol Willis, general manager of smart x central intelligence.

During the course of the day's proceedings, vendors will be able to demonstrate their solutions in an exhibition area, where further networking and information exchange can take place. This will make the conference an excellent opportunity to network among peers working in the same industry and experiencing the same risks. All attendees will also receive a CD with the day's presentations and additional material for further research.

The cost per delegate of the conference, refreshments, lunch and the delegate pack is R1710 (incl VAT). Group bookings qualify for a discount.
