THE CONTACTLESS INTELLIGENCE CONFERENCE is expanding and is now offering different formats to engage delegates over two days:
- Informal Welcome Evening for arriving delegates
- Main Contactless Intelligence conference with keynotes, presentations and panel sessions
- Informal and interactive ‘unconference’ sessions, guided by industry specialists
- Gala Dinner accompanying the Contactless and Mobile Awards ceremony in the evening
- A second conference day with two in-depth forums on key future topics for the Contactless and Mobile industry
A special focus this year is on the potential of the self-service market and unattended payments. In an increasingly convenience-focused market, we will look at the customer driven, practical innovations and how it creates new solutions. From interactive services, to multimedia output and online connectivity, today’s service oriented kiosks, ticketing and self-service applications may be one of the key drivers for contactless and mobile implementations.
Animated debate and exchange among peers is encouraged during the afternoon’s ‘unconference’ sessions. In the course of these participant-driven meetings, smaller groups discuss topical issues and questions that have come out of the morning’s keynotes and presentations. The results of these meetings are later presented to all delegates.
- Keynote: State of Play
- Transportation: has contactless technology finally proved its worth in this sector?
- Unattended: the move away from cash
- Mobile technologies in the retail environment
EVENING DAY 1
The 8th Contactless & Mobile Awards 2015 celebrates excellence, innovation, commitment and best practices in the contactless and mobile industry. Hundreds of entries are shortlisted down to over panel and during the course of the Awards Ceremony, 14 winners be awarded one of the much coveted CMA awards.

- Unattended: vending and parking
- Contactless ID & Security
- Industry Choice
- Visa PayWave Award: Best Contactless Awareness & Education Campaign
- Visa PayWave Award: Business Leader of the Year
Tickets cost £375 + VAT for the conference and dinner (early bird rate until 31.12.14)
The second day is organised in 2 topical Forum streams, providing insights into trending technical issues: One based on the topic of Mobile ID and the other on the topic of Open Standards. A variety of organizations and Alliances are supporting, endorsing or hosting the Forums.
Both Forums are free of charge, but as places are limited, seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Be it shopping, banking or communicating with public authorities – more and more people are handling both private and business transactions on the net. Security experts are now searching for additional solutions to make the ID functions of electronic documents usable by means of mobile devices, too. In the future, NFC-enabled smartphones or tablets should be usable online functions of electronic ID documents available for mobile applications, too, where eID functions are involved.
This forum looks at the status-quo in terms of government-led mobile ID initiatives and the commercial sector solutions that are developing.
Proposed key topics
- Chicken & Egg – What comes first, commercial or government ownership of the user’s secure credentials?
- The importance of hardware in mobile ID applications
- Integrating biometrics to secure mobile applications – will solutions like Touch ID be the beginning a new mass market reality for biometrics?
- German ID card – An over-priced, over-engineered identity fortress or the benchmark for secure ID systems around the world?
- Biometrics – Face recognition in the era of the cloud and social media: Time to hit the panic button?
The topic of Open Standards is part of most technology debates across the entire value chain of mobile and contactless implementations. Independent of applications such as transportation, payment, loyalty and access, the discussion about standards is getting more and more heated. Initiatives such as FIDO and OSPT are developing open, scalable and interoperable specs to increase the speed of technology adoption without the ties to a proprietary solution and the license fees that go with it.
Proposed key topics
- OSPT – David vs. Goliath: Can a truly open standards approach shake up the transportation and ticketing industry?
- FIDO – How an industry alliance is setting out to reduce the reliance on passwords to authenticate users.
- GSMA – The role of open standards in the mobile value chain.
- Java Card Forum – How can an open platform still offer security?
