We have generous support from a number of Sponsors:
The main IIW Conference convenes semi-annually in California with a focus on user-centric digital identity facilitating cross industry collaboration between large and small companies and across all major standards organizations and between various industries.
The IIW Community is engaged in solving the technical challenges of how people can manage their own identity and data across the range of websites, services, companies and organizations that they interact with, belong to, purchase from and participate with. We also work on addressing social andlegal issues that arise with these new tools and innovation in business models for a healthy overall ecosystem.
The 13th IIW held this past October was the largest thus far with over 300 in attendance. It included two days of focus, one on NSTIC (National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace) and the other called Yukon (You-Con) which focused on the business opportunities that emerge around people and their data.
We host Satellite Events in various locations to supplement our main semi-annual event. In the fall of 2010 we hosted an IIW Satellite event in DC and London and also co-produce ID Collaboration Day on the Monday Prior to RSA in San Francisco. We are returning to DC this January because of repeated community requests to do so.
People who should attend this event include:
Unlike other identity conferences, IIW’s focus is on the use of identity management approaches based on open standards that are privacy protecting. It is a unique blend of technology and policy discussions where everyone from a diverse range of projects doing the real-work of making this vision happen, gather and work intensively for two days. It is the best place to meet and participate with all the key people and projects going on in the field.
The event has a unique format - the agenda is created live the day of the event! This allows for the discussion of key issues, projects and a lot of interactive opportunities with key industry leaders. As people register we solicit ideas for sessions and post them on a wiki. You can see the growing list of who is attending at the bottom of this announcement and the list of suggested topics here.
How does it work?
After the brief introduction on the first day, there are no formal presentations, no keynotes and no panels. After introductions we start with a blank wall and, in less than an hour, with a facilitator guiding the process attendees create a full day, multi-track conference agenda that is relevant and inspiring to everyone there. All are welcome to put forward presentations and propose conversations.
We do this in part because the field is moving so rapidly that it doesn’t make sense to predetermine the presentation schedule months before the event. We do know great people who will be there and it is the attendees who have a passion to learn and contribute to the event that will make it.
The event compiles a book of proceedings with all the notes from the conference. Here are the proceedings from the previous Satellite in DC and from IIW13, IIW12, IIW11, IIW10... and more. BTW documents are your key to convincing your employer that this event will be valuable.
