ICAO will hold its Sixth Symposium on ICAO MRTDs, Biometrics and Security Standards from 1 - 4 November 2010. An Exhibition will complement the Symposium and highlight important products and services related to MRTDs, biometric identification and border inspection systems.
The 2010 Symposium follows last year's successful event, attended by over 500 participants from States, international organizations, companies and institutions. It will again take place at ICAO Headquarters, 999 University Street, Montréal, Quebec, Canada.
The Symposium programme will be posted on this website as soon as it becomes available and will be continually updated as required. The Symposium and Exhibition will open on the morning of Monday, 1 November and continue until the end of the day on Thursday, 4 November 2010.
The presentations and handouts will be available only in English. Simultaneous interpretation will be available in English, French, Spanish and Russian, as required.
The Symposium will be of particular interest to officials of passport and official ID document issuing agencies, immigration, customs, and other border control and security authorities. Officials from airlines and airports involved in passenger service systems, handling of travel documents, facilitation and aviation security would also benefit from participation.
