This year for the first time, IBIA will be leading a panel at the Smithsonian Magazine Future Con.  Future Con, presented by Smithsonian Media, a part of the bigger Awesome Con, is a celebration of science and technology, featuring some of the world's most innovative brands and organizations. The Conference is being held April 26 - 28, 2019 at the Walter E Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC, the week leading up to connect:ID 2019.
IBIA submitted a proposal, with the title Science Fiction to Fact: The Voyage of Biometrics.  Among the hundreds of applications, IBIA was accepted  
IBIA will create a panel of 4-6 presenters, showcasing biometric technologies with IBIA talent to discuss the voyage of biometrics, and how it is changing the way we live. We are seeking panelists from among the many creative geniuses in IBIA.
Over 70,000 people from the DC Metro Area attend Awesome Con and more than 51% of attendees are employed in government, tech, and professionals, specialists or management fields.  Last year, Awesome Con received over 2.1 billion combined media impressions, reaching a highly-targeted audience.
IBIA’s panel time is Friday, April 26 from 2:00 pm until 2:45 pm.  This is an “out of this world” opportunity to introduce IBIA, share our technologies with the public.  
In addition, Future Con will be hosting an “Ask the Scientist” table on the showroom floor and have invited IBIA to participate, extending the panel discussion.
All panelists will receive complimentary passes that are good for the whole weekend.
In previous years, NASA, Lockheed Martin and other large tech companies have participated in this event.   If you are a secret “Treckie” or sci-fi fan, this is an opportunity to have fun and educate a new and significant audience.
