Overview

The 8th Government Discussion Forum on Electronic Identity will be hosted by APSCA on 23-25 February 2011 at the Hotel Le Meridien in New Delhi. The 8th forum is being held in India because of the significance of India's eID initiatives and will focus on electronic identification schemes for residents and government agencies that facilitate and enhance the delivery of government services and benefits.

Since 2002 the Government Discussion Forum on Electronic Identity has established a track record as Asia's largest meeting of government officers responsible for eID management and infrastructure. From 2004 to 2010, representatives from over 60 government agencies from 30 to 40 countries, from Asia, the Gulf, Europe and the Americas participated in the forum. Over the past 8 years each forum has been attended by an average of 100-150 senior government decision-makers responsible for eID management, national population databases, national identity cards, government services, passports and border control in their countries.

A technology exposition of latest solutions and technologies for government electronic identity schemes will be held concurrently with the forum to enable government officers and eID experts to learn of the latest technologies for biometrics, eID infrastructure and management, enrolment and registration, identity verification and authentication, software and database solutions.

Site visits and study tours will be conducted on Day 3 by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and government agencies responsible for national eID schemes in India. The site visits will enable better understanding of the enrolment processes, registrars, de-duplication of citizens’ data, and the authentication services already underway in India to provide residents, government agencies and private sector organisations under the UID initiative with national population databases and smart eID card schemes.
