Biometrics for border control: ethical, social and legal aspects


Presentation: ABC4EU pilots: evaluating ABC gates from a legal, ethical and societal standpoint

Dr. Gemma Galdon Clavell and Dr. Martín Zamorano


This presentation will describe the ABC4EU pilots to be executed in the forthcoming project months. In particular, it will describe the protocols set up for protecting the participants privacy and integrity, as well as the methodology that will be applied in order to evaluate the system deployment by real travelers.
We will discuss this methodology, including field studies and different data collection techniques, such as surveys, interviews and non-participant observations.
Examples of questionnaires and of the conceptual operationalization employed, including the evaluation criteria, variables and different indicators, will be discussed giving priority to the aspects related to user experience. Some interesting results of preliminary fieldwork will be also shared.
