The award will be presented at the International Biometric Conference in Riga, Latvia during IBC 2022.
The award consists of a Recognition Award, which will be presented in Riga, and complimentary IBS membership for the next calendar year (which may be donated to a member from a lower-and-middle-income country, if the award winner so chooses). A full list of Kempton Award recipients may be found here.
