Call for Presentations

Devoted to innovative use of smart card and mobile contactless technologies, designed to improve the services offered within universities campuses, ECCA 2014 will accept presentations that offer attendees pioneering practices, real and sustainable solutions and a view on future trends.
Smart cards are essential building blocks for many applications and systems used in payment, content protection, transportation, student services, mobile and identification. Besides the commercial and application aspects of smart cards, this year the ECCA conference wants to gather researchers and technologists with strong focus on all aspects of smart card (i.e. cards, tokens, smart phones and embedded chips) development and deployment of solutions, preferably those with strong emphasis on enhancing life within campus. ECCA 2014 is seeking for original solutions and presentations covering all phases of the development and deployment cycle, from exploratory research and proof-of-concept studies to practical and final applications.
