ECCA to Host its 2017 Annual Conference in Birmingham UK

“Standardising Secure Identity”

The European Campus Card Association’s Annual Conference 2017 offers a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge of campus card systems and secure eID Credentials. The conference educational sessions, presentations, and workshops will provide you with a range of new technology innovations and initiatives that will assist in the delivery of high quality services to your campus community. The workshops will include a range of innovation initiatives including the concept of a common eID solution that will achieve interoperability between institutions on a cross-border basis.

This year’s conference will be held in Birmingham, UK on May 21st to 23rd 2017. This is the 15th annual conference since ECCA was founded in 2002. The conference is already attracting huge interest, and delegates from all over Europe and worldwide are expected to attend.
Presentations, Research Papers and technical workshops will be presented by speakers from Europe and the US covering a wide range of issues relating to campus card systems and secure eID credentials. The conference exhibition centre, which will be attended by leading worldwide card companies and technology developers will provided an insight into the current and future card technology hardware and software systems.

The conference in addition to providing attendees with ideas on the future needs and requirements of eID credentials and campus card systems, will also provides an important networking opportunity for those to share information, experience and knowledge.

ECCA Campus Card State-of-the Art Survey

The report on the findings of the survey commissioned by ECCA in 2016 to determine the current state-of-the-art and the potential future requirements for eID credentials and campus card systems in Europe and beyond has been recently published.

This report provides a detailed analysis of the findings and reflects the views and opinions of a wide range of educational institutions.

The global participation of 28 countries in the survey, comprising of 181 educational institutions, of which 129 were European institutions, provided a wide base for data collection. The findings from the data provided from the European Institutions indicated no significant deviation when compared with the data provided by the other global institutions. It is clearly evident that the requirements of campus card systems are similar on a global basis, particularly with regard to their future needs and requirements of eID credentials.

The objective of the survey focused on establishing the current state-of-the-art of the following:
(i) Details on existing Campus Card system
(ii) Card Issuing, Personalisation and Requirements
(iii) Value load and Payments
(iv) Mobile devices and Applications
(v) Interoperability and standards
(vi) Card Validation, Authentication and Self Service Kiosks
(vii) Details and plans of campuses without a card system

Overall the survey has provided valuable information on the current state-of-the-art in campus card systems. It has also provided an insight into the educational members’ vision with regard to their future needs and requirements of eID credentials and campus card systems. These findings, in addition to assisting our educational and corporate membership, will assist ECCA’s research and innovation programme, particularly in the area of promoting the concept of a common eID solution that will achieve interoperability between institutions on a cross-border basis.
ECCA would like to acknowledge and thank the educational institutions who participated in this survey. Their assistance has enabled ECCA to establish a valuable depository of information which will be of valuable assistance to the on-going development of eID credentials and campus card systems.
