The Smart Card Forum, which promotes the card technology, launched an Educational Institute that will supply objective and timely information on smart cards, related technologies, and software applications.

Its classes are to be geared toward forum members and other interested parties in both the public and private sectors to instruct them about the basics of smart card technology and how to apply it in a business environment.

An introductory course is scheduled Jan. 15-16 in Phoenix at La Posada Resort.

Speakers will include Catherine Allen, a former forum chairwoman who is now a principal of the Santa Fe Group; William Barr of Bellcore; John Burke of Foley, Hoag & Eliot; and Gilles Lisimaque of card maker Gemplus.
