Registration for industry professionals is free of charge. “The unique value of our international web conferences is that they cut down the budget and time barriers usually associated with offline conferences”, says Val-Pierre Genton, Managing Director of e-symposium. The free-of-charge strategy is expected to generate attendance levels in excess of 1,000 delegates and create unprecedented knowledge-sharing from experts to delegates. It seems that the E-Symposium covers every angle – not only can delegates attend high quality presentations from the comfort of their own office, but they can also interact with their international colleagues via cutting edge web-based instant messaging technology. Delegates can even create private, secured “rooms” to have closed meetings. With training and travel budgets tight or non-existent, this certainly is deliverance for the legal, law enforcement and academic communities. “Our mission is to facilitate the gathering of industry intelligence and to stimulate international knowledge sharing”, says Val-Pierre Genton. Well, it looks like the Human Identification E-Symposium 2005 does just that.
