IIW East: Open Identity for Open Government
The Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) is a working group of the Identity Commons and has been convened in California semi-annually since 2005. The 10th IIW was held this past May and had the largest attendance thus far. There have been many requests to have an IIW on the East coast, and now the Open Identity for Open Government Initiative is providing a timely basis to have one in Washington, DC. This event immediately follows Gov 2.0 and has a theme of Open Identity for Open Government.
Internet Identity Workshops focus on “user-centric identity” addressing the technical and adoption challenge of how people can manage their own identity across the range of websites, services, companies and organizations with which they interact. The focus of this first IIW-East will be on the government adoption of open identity technologies for use by government websites.
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. You can see the growing list of who is attending at the bottom of this announcement.
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 IIW7, IIW8, IIW9 & IIW10. BTW these three documents are your key to convincing your employer that this event will be valuable.
Conference fee covers all meeting meals - lunch Thursday and Friday, dinner Thursday evening.
Government Employees - please let us know if you need any additional information in order to register and attend!
