Session 5 __ The worst nightmares of a cash society
Cash systems must be designed to be fail-proof and thus provide assurances of stability to countries and their citizens. Proposed papers must explore nightmare scenarios that could disrupt the order of cash usage and how to prevent these, such as undetected counterfeit banknotes, untraceable sources of counterfeiting, cyber-crime and the dark net, the cultural traps of banknote design, as well as the social unacceptance of cash.
Session 6 __ ID fraud: from document counterfeiting to photo morphing
Identity documents continue to face challenges from digital technologies. This session will explore the latest trends in document counterfeiting, with emphasis on photo morphing technologies that complicate the proof of identity, the identification and registration of refugees, and international cooperation of law enforcement for the apprehension of criminals.
Session 7 __ Psychology of cash: a world without it?
Cash provides a critical function for countries around the globe, enabling transactions and trust in local economies. Proposed papers may include the public perception of banknotes today, the role of cash in an economic model, usage patterns of cash, and the potential consequences of a cashless society.
Session 8 __ Identification documents beyond the traditional
Passports, national ID cards and driver’s licenses provide common forms of identification. However, many other forms now exist, from temporary and sector-specific to regional and transnational. Because of their increasing importance, these documents are incorporating the latest anti-counterfeit technologies. This session will cover new programmes such as seafarer IDs, refugee ID documents, eLaissez-Passer, and permanent residence cards.
