Soon after the tragedies in Paris, Cartes Secure Connexions 2015 took place in Paris Nord Exhibition Center in Villepinte, France from

November 17-19, 2015.  Cartes, founded 30 years ago has seen many developments  in  information society and now digital society,

The theme of CARTES SECURE CONNECTIONS 2015 was “unlimited innovation.”  

The Sesmes Awards, usually presented the night before the event were held the first night of the event.  This year 11 awards were presented including a special Golden Sesames Award which Infineon won.  After the presentation of the awards  there was an outstanding cocktail party. We met Rinku Suri, dressed in a beautiful beige Indian sari who told us she was there to promote Smart Cards Expo  www.smartcardexpo.co  in India which will be held on October 18 -19,2016,

She told us “SmartCards Expo was launched in 1999 by Electronics Today, India’s first Techno-Economic Electronics Monthly Journal and the Pioneer in organizing Electronics/Information Technology exhibitions in India since 1969.

India has seen a promising growth in all these technology applications during the past few years. Smart card applications, in conjunction with mobile communications, biometrics, RFID and Payments technologies, are being implemented by the Central and State governments for several socioeconomic projects worth trillion of rupees.”

We had the pleasure of talking with Arielle Jaffe, marketing & communications coordinator  for Mondato LLC.  Arielle, from USA told us that she enjoys the cultural life in Paris.
