This year the 7th edition of the eID Conference (former National eID & ePassport Conference) was hosted in Washington, DC, USA, on the 28th-29th of September 2015.
300 government delegates came together from all around the world, in Washington, to discuss the foundation and evolution of a global eID infrastructure, based on the digitalization of citizen ID documents.
The World Bank is calling on governments to work together to implement standardized, cost-effective identity management solutions.
A report synopsis notes that about 1.8 billion adults around the world currently lack any kind of official documentation.
