Smart Card Conference to Focus on Mobile, Payment, Security Technologies

The Smart Card Alliance 2010 Annual Conference May 17-20 at Camelback Marriott Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz., will address “Smart Cards in Action,” focusing on the issuers and users of smart card technology in payments, security, and mobile markets. This year’s conference marks the return to an independent smart card industry conference rather than the co-event partnership of the past few years.

“No single chip technology, business application, or market implementation truly defines how smart cards are seen in 2010 and beyond. Chip technology and implementation choices for applications like payments, mobile commerce, identity management and security vary greatly,” says Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Smart Card Alliance. “At this year’s Annual Conference, the Alliance is bringing together issuers and users from the various markets that use smart cards, so attendees can learn how these different markets use common chip features and functionality to address their differing transaction needs.”

Attendees of the Smart Card Alliance 2010 Annual Conference can look forward to learning about use cases and best practices, meeting with innovative vendors in an expanded exhibit hall, witnessing live demonstrations, networking with industry peers and more.

Pre-conference, on May 17, attendees can choose to attend the Mobile Payments Workshop, held by the Alliance in partnership with the NFC Forum. The full-day session will provide attendees with a detailed understanding of the technology and the emerging ecosystem for the use of NFC-enabled mobile devices for payments, loyalty and mobile marketing applications.

Also pre-conference, members of the Alliance’s Leadership, Education and Advancement Program (LEAP) can register for the Certified Smart Card Industry Professional (CSCIP) full-day preparation course. The CSCIP exam will be held at the conclusion of the conference on May 20.
