Technology in Corrections, 27-29 May 2015

By Fraser Bryans - December 22nd, 2014

The European Organisation of Prison and Correctional Services (EuroPris) in cooperation with the International Corrections and Prisons Association (ICPA) and the Confederation of European Probation (CEP) will organise on 27-29th May 2015 the first Global Corrections Digital Technology Conference, ‘Technology in Corrections: Challenges for the Future’ and will be hosted by the Justice Department, Government of Catalonia.

Close to the famous Arc de Triomf and Place Catalunya, the conference venue is located at the Centre for Legal Studies and Specialised Training, in the centre of Barcelona.

The aim of this conference is to:

• Challenge the private sector to develop innovative digital solutions for use in corrections to address issues facing prisons and probation today;

• Provide networking opportunities for technology experts in the corrections arena;

• To promote the use and implementation of advanced Digital Technology Solutions in corrections.


This is an international event and experts from a wide range of backgrounds and sectors in the creation, development and the implementation of correctional technology solutions should seek to attend. This includes senior decision makers in correctional jurisdictions, heads of ICT departments, business improvement professionals, prison and probation management experts, analytical and research specialists and technology solution providers. We seek to attract a core audience of those presently working within the prison and probation sectors who are involved in the advancement of their respective jurisdictions through the implementation of digital technology initiatives. Overall we aim for this event to attract some 200 participants comprising public and private sector professionals from countries across the globe.


A detailed programme will be formed in the months leading up to the event; however the programme will be underpinned by three main themes:

1) The collaboration, knowledge and information management within the whole Lifecycle of Offender Management;

2) The collaboration and participation of the Offender throughout this Lifecycle;

3) Improving Operational and Security processes both inside and outside the prison walls.

Presentations will demonstrate innovative solutions in corrections to present day challenges! Case studies and real world examples of ‘what works’ will be presented jointly by experts in the public and private sectors.

Delegates will be welcomed to the event at our evening reception on Wednesday 27th May (starting at 1900hrs). The conference itself will comprise a number of inspiring and engaging presentations with dialogues in smaller groups from both public and private perspectives on the challenges and possible solutions of using technologies in corrections.

Over the course of the event, participants will have the opportunity to interact and contribute during the dialogue sessions and to network and discuss issues in detail. Participants will also be invited to meet and greet in our exclusive ‘marketplace’ and to learn more about some of the present offerings from leading technology providers in the field.
