One day seminar held in London by the IEE and the Association for Biometrics presented recent progress in the development and application of biometrics. Speakers told the audience how the terrorist attacks in the USA in September 2001 have created new opportunities for biometrics due to new initiatives to introduce biometric‐enabled passports. Papers presented at the seminar covered standards development and biometric implementation guidance. New organisations for promoting the application of biometrics both in the UK and Europe were outlined.
