connect:ID 2018 names keynote speaker


The organisers of connect:ID 2018Science Media Partners and the International Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA), have announced that Jonathan Turley, Professor of Law at the George Washington University School of Law, will deliver a Principal Keynote Address to the full conference.

His address, which will focus on issues of identity, privacy, and anonymity under our constitutional system, will open the second day of the conference at 8:30am on Tuesday, May 1, 2018. 

connect:ID 2018, which will be held between April 30 - May 2  in Washington DC, will bring the entire identity community together to explore the identity revolution, and chart a course for the future, the organisers wrote in a press statement advising of the launch.

Professor Turley will mediate the increasingly acrimonious debate over privacy and technology with reasoned, fact-based arguments. Professor Turley received his chair as the J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at the George Washington University School of Law in 1998.

Since then, he has become a recognized legal expert. He has written several books, dozens of law journal articles, and hundreds of newspaper columns; consulted on homeland security and constitutional matters; testified before House and Senate committees; and served as counsel on some of the most prominent court cases of the past two decades.

Professor Turley is known for his contributions to USA Today; his appearances on television news networks including Fox, NBC, and CBS; and his widely read and highly accessible law blog. Turley’s reputation has earned him the designation of the second most cited law professor in the United States, as well as the 38th spot on a ranking of the top 100 public intellectuals. 

connect:ID 2018 is an innovative international conference and a free global exhibition that together focus on all aspects of identity technologies and the opportunities for their management in both the physical and digital worlds.
