Smart Card Alliance Announces Plans for Annual Conference in Miami


The Smart Card Alliance’s 2005 Fall Annual Conference/USA & Latin America Conference will be held at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay in Florida. The event will begin Oct. 11 and continue through Oct. 14. The conference will allow attendees to learn about the recent advances that have taken place in the entire North American smart card industry in contactless payments, government identity credentials, access security, network authentication, mass transit fare cards, mobile telecom and e-commerce, and the new trends and technology developments ahead.

The event will include presentations from industry experts, analysts, and end users on the “state of the marketplace” and what lies ahead for the smart card industry. Updates and analysis of technology advances in chip design and operating systems enhancements will also be provided.

Other issues to be covered include contactless chip technology along with standardization and certification efforts involving FIPS 140 and FIPS 201 compliance, and ANSI and ISO committee work group activities featuring reports from newly formed Alliance Technology Councils.

There will also be reports from Latin American business leaders and industry experts on the growth of smart card applications in Latin America, to help U.S. and Latin American firms learn what they can do to increase business within this region.
