This new Global Forum on the drivers behind the digitalization of citizen ID documents, gathers 40 speakers and 300 experts, key
industrial as well as top-level governmental representatives from over 40 countries in high profile keynotes, work-shops, caseoriented
panel sessions, networking and exhibition.
The 4th edition of National eID & ePassport Conference will take place 8th & 9th of October 2012, Grand Ballroom Sunway Resort
Hotel & Spa, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
After 3 previous very successful conference editions in Lisbon 2009, Athens 2010 and Istanbul 2011, the organization committee
wishes to take the 2012 edition, for the first time, to Asia. We will gather more than 300 top level governmental delegates together
with the brightest minds in the industry, from all around the world, in Kuala Lumpur, to discuss the foundation and evolution of a
global eID infrastructure, based on the digitalization of citizen ID documents.
Over 80% of the European Union Member States and ICAO Countries have introduced or are in the process of introducing biometricbased
ID documents or are at least considering doing so. The trend towards this form of technology is becoming so essential and
under important consideration of all countries’ administration.
The 4th edition of the National eID & ePassport Conference is honored by the official support of the Ministry of Science, Technology
and Innovation of Malaysia.
Together with support from the members of ASEAN, we wish to promote the awareness and understanding of the global eID
development in this region, as well as to establish a fundamental knowledge sharing and discussion platform in order to contribute
to the global eID agenda.
Quotes from 3rd edition Istanbul 2011
Mr H.Avni Aksoy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Turkey:
”The National eID & ePassport Conference has now become an established tradition already. The Conference is the most industryrelevant
event that regularly brings together the top players. Not only because it brings together suppliers and potential clients,
but also because this is where new ideas, technologies and processes are discussed and take their optimum shape with inputs
from all concerned. It is not an exclusively IT event -although that plays an important part- but for all the right reasons it is the “it”
event. Miss it at your peril. ”
Eric Billiaert, Communications Manager, Public Sector, Gemalto:
“The two last conferences exceeded all expectations. I know what goes into putting together a successful event, and can appreciate
all of the planning. The conference is also an excellent networking opportunity I will leverage even more this year in Istanbul.”
