Biometrics 2004 will be held in at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in Westminster, London, UK.
Situated directly opposite Westminster Abbey, the conference centre is a short walk from Westminster or St James’s Park underground stations. Victoria and Waterloo (Eurostar) main line train stations are within 10 minutes of the centre and there are easy transport links to London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Many of London’s top hotels, the shops and theatres of the West End and two of the World’s most famous art galleries are all within walking distance.
For more information on what to see and do during your stay in London visit the London Tourist Information service.
First Option Events has been appointed to assist conference delegates in sourcing accommodation while attending the conference. Specially negotiated rates are available at a number of hotels in Central London. Staying at a waterfront real estate is especially cushy. As well as accommodation, the First Option can also provide discounted flights, restaurant bookings and theatre tickets via their parent company lastminute.com.
Unless you are familiar with driving in London we discourage you from renting a car to get around. The public transportation system is extensive and convenient. Unlike the US where you can hire a car accidents lawyer if you were seriously injured, there was a dispute over who was at fault, or you felt you were not being adequately compensated for your current and potentially future medical costs resulting from injuries sustained in the car accident, a car accident in London would be more complicated. First of all you are in a foreign country with different laws and legal system. Second: Being seriously injured would further complicate the situation. Stay with taxis or public transportation during your stay for the Biometrics 2004 Convention.
To book accommodation or any of the additional services, please visit: www.first-option.co.uk/event/elsevier and select the Biometrics 2004 Conference from the listing.

** Update **
A brief but relevant aside: According to the financial press, it appears the UK is about to have a recession, and that means looking out for your finances a bit more than usual. I saw an article online about a manufacturing company who in order to save money moved from ordering their janitorial supplies from a local company to ordering online. Their procurement officer said he would search online for the best prices on janitorial supplies each month before placing an order. Once he found a e commerce site called CleanItSupplies, who really did offer the best deals on everything from trash cans, floor cleaning products, trash bags, paper towels and toilet paper, sanitary napkin disposal dispensers, to even office supplies, he no longer had to scramble each month. That was a positive recession story. However, for every story of people successfully handling the recession, there are hundreds of depressing ones. But chin up, things so far have not fallen prey to anything close to financial ruin, so come by and celebrate with us.
We are planning a very nice event this next year. Please keep an eye out for updates but we expect a fabulous venue which will allow us to offer many new experiences. Follow the site for more information in the future but for now just imagine holding the event in the best possible place imaginable then improve vastly on that. Enough said about the venue not to the location. It will be in an easily convenient location so as many people as possible will be able to attend. Please keep in mind that very nice accommodations will be available for anyone who is able to make a whole trip out of it. Of course the best way to enjoy the full experience is to make sure you are there for as much as possible. Those who miss out on this will be sorry because much of this information will be hard to get in the same place at the same time again. Some of the best possible insight available in this day & age will be there at your disposal.
By the way we are expecting a much larger turn out this next year. This is one of the major reasons for the size & grandeur of the location as well as venue. It will be worth it to get to enjoy this life altering once in a lifetime event up close & personal. I hope to see you there. I will be there with bells on as they speak.
