Keynote title: Sustainable Quality Systems in Organizations

The content of the speech will address the following questions:

  1. 1. How the definition of "sustainable" concretely applied in organizations?
  2. 2. How much are our projects "sustainable"?
  3. 3. Which best practices are yet in place?
  4. 4. Which standards should we adhere to?
  5. 5. What impact on ICT products and processes (if any)?

Keynote title: Biometric Person Authentication - Strengthening Our Defences in the Face of a Computer Security Crisis

Computer users are asked almost daily to "upgrade" their commercial-grade office software, web browsers and operating systems in order to maintain a level of protection against cyberattacks. Nevertheless, media reports of computer systems compromised and large financial losses to hackers and criminal gangs are all too frequent. There are several reasons for the apparent computer security crisis. Software engineering is partly to blame for the seemingly never ending revelations of bugs and vulnerabilities, but social engineering and human psychology also play an important role in facilitating easy access to computer system to unauthorised users. Enter biometrics. Authentication through what we ARE instead of, or in addition to, what we have and what we know, promises to strengthen user authentication and make it less tedious for users at the same time. This talk will present the state of the art in biometric person authentication, including pattern recognition algorithms, multimodal fusion and liveness assurance, as well as the usability, acceptability and robustness of different biometrics in typical applications and authentication scenarios. An often overlooked aspect of biometric authentication, namely its potential for a substantial diminution of the environmental impact in a number of application areas, will be emphasised in this talk.
