International Conference on Biometrics for Borders (ICBB)

Please be informed that on 1-3 December 2020, Frontex will hold its second International Conference on Biometrics for Borders (ICBB). In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s conference will be held online.

The thematic focus will be the practical implementation of the Entry/Exit System (EES) at the EU’s external borders.

The objective of the ICBB2020 is to provide an online platform for dialogue to decision-makers, project managers and other practitioners responsible for the implementation of the EES by:

  • Offering access to discussions on the EES in the wider context of interoperability, and the international perspectives on the European entry and exit system;
  • Demonstrating existing EES solutions through a Virtual Industry Exhibition on EES equipment, with online presentations and discussions, and an industry portal for digital consultation of industry solutions; and
  • Providing practical support to Member States through a series of online sessions aimed at discussing challenges of a practical and operational nature that relate to processes and operational performance.


Virtual Industry Exhibition on EES equipment: to meet national border management authorities’ need for innovative technologies in the context of the EES, a substantial part of the conference will be dedicated to a Virtual Industry Exhibition on EES equipment. Throughout the whole conference, selected industry representatives will be given the opportunity to showcase their new and existing EES-compliant technical solutions in a series of online presentations and discussions. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on international travel and border control, innovative touchless technologies and solutions focusing on seamless travel will also be considered. Information on how to submit an offer will soon be published on the Frontex website (Industry point of contact:
