Plenary __ Banknotes and identity documents in a changing world

Proposed papers should address the opportunities and challenges that affect either or both banknotes and ID documents. This includes – but is not limited to – new IDs and banknote series, innovative technological advances, and advanced payment and ID systems that may lead to dramatic realignments in the industry.

 
 
Thursday 22/03/2018 - Morning

Session 1 __ Banknote authentication an untrained world

This session will tackle the challenges that governments face in educating a widely diverse universe of citizens, cash handlers, commercial banks and other users to authenticate banknotes. Proposed papers should address topics such as new public education campaigns, lessons learned from past efforts, the balance of security features for public authentication vs. the cost of their implementation, and ʽsmartʼ banknotes that enable self-verification.

Session 2 __ Advancements in authentication of identity documents

Accurate identification of IDs remains a challenge for governments around the world. This session will examine the latest technologies that facilitate the authentication of ID-1 and ID-3 documents to include remote verification, new training methods, innovative tools, mobile apps, and supporting IT infrastructures and databases.

 

Session 3 __ Exploring the future of banknote technologies

With the ever-growing need to increase the security and sophistication of banknotes, this session will cover advanced anti-counterfeit technologies, the perception vs. the reality of security features, machine-readability, banknote distribution, big data/circulation patterns, and the cost of cash.

Session 4 __ Protecting the integrity of ID documents and their supply chain

Tender issuing authorities face challenges when their requirements are contested and their ID programmes suffer delays and inflated costs. This session will examine the lessons learned from such experiences and provide guidelines for designing requirements that result in fair and equitable awards.

 
Thursday 22/03/2018 - Afternoon

Session 5 __ Challenges in a cash society

Cash systems must be designed to be fail-proof and thus provide assurances of stability to countries and their citizens. Proposed papers must explore nightmare scenarios that could disrupt the order of cash usage and how to prevent these, such as undetected counterfeit banknotes, untraceable sources of counterfeiting, cyber-crime and the dark net, the cultural traps of banknote design, as well as the social unacceptance of cash.

Session 6 __ Photo morphing fraud: 1+1=1

Identity documents continue to face challenges from digital technologies. This session will explore the latest trends in document counterfeiting, with emphasis on photo morphing technologies that complicate the proof of identity, the identification and registration of refugees, and international cooperation of law enforcement for the apprehension of criminals.

 

Session 7 __ Psychology of cash: a world without it?

Cash provides a critical function for countries around the globe, enabling transactions and trust in local economies. Proposed papers may include the public perception of banknotes today, the role of cash in an economic model, usage patterns of cash, and the potential consequences of a cashless society.

Session 8 __ Identification documents beyond the traditional

Passports, national ID cards and driver’s licenses provide common forms of identification. However, many other forms now exist, from temporary and sector-specific to regional and transnational. Because of their increasing importance, these documents are incorporating the latest anti-counterfeit technologies. This session will cover new programmes such as seafarer IDs, refugee ID documents, eLaissez-Passer, and permanent residence cards.

 
Friday 23/03/2018

Session 9 __ Cash in a digital world and the consequences of future disruptive technologies

With the continuous increase of alternative forms of payment, cash must keep pace to stay relevant. Furthermore, with disruptive technologies on the horizon, it is important to consider their impact on cash and its usage before it is too late. This session will explore the functionality of cash, scenarios for cash usage and demand, cash as more than a means of payment, the anonymity of cash vs. the benefits of tracking transactions, the social acceptance of banknotes, the resonance of cash vs. digital transactions, and the potential elimination of cash as a form of payment.

Session 10 __ The future of identity

Governments have traditionally relied on physical documents to prove identity. New forms of verification are emerging that may transform the way citizens are identified. Proposed papers in this session will explore technologies such as biometric identity, mobile identity, mobile driver’s licenses, and next generation machine-readable passports.
