Event description


Internet Identity Workshop XXX (#30)

April 28 - 30, 2020

Computer History Museum - Mountain View, CA

You belong at IIW this Spring! You’ll acquire the real-time pulse of genuinely disruptive technologies that are the foundation of today's important Internet movements.

The Internet Identity Workshop has been finding, probing and solving identity issues twice every year since 2005. Every IIW moves topics, code, and projects downfield. Name an identity topic and it's likely that more substantial discussion and work has been done at IIW than any other conference!

“Not Just Who They Say We Are: Claiming our Identity on the Internet“ Watch this short documentary about the work that has happened over the first 12 years at IIW.

Why You Should Come

This is the time and place that you get to discuss, share your knowledge, work on and learn about anything & everything related to Internet Identity TODAY.

Session notes from the last IIW can be found online at the link. Identity is at the heart of all these topics along with others we hope to see discussed at IIW Spring 2020 such as:

  • Two-Factor Authentication (U2F)
  • Use Managed Accesss (UMA)

"I've been attending IIW for many years, and it provides immense value every time. The event promotes progress in one of the most exciting and consequential realms anywhere in the world of technology, and the unConference format brings out the best in experienced identity practitioners and newbies alike."
Eve Maler - VP Innovation & Emerging Technology ForgeRock

How It Works

IIW is at its heart a participatory conference, it is an Open Space unConference. It has no keynotes or panels, so it's about getting stuff done!

The agenda is created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. The doors will open at 8:00 with espresso and light breakfast and Agenda Creation happens at 9:00 followed by five (5) working sessions. For a visual idea of how this works, take a look at this Video Montage of IIW #15 created by TechGoddessJudith.

Through dozens of sessions, lunches & two evening meals (Provided by our Generous Sponsors) you'll have plenty of chances to exchange ideas and make new professional connections. The unConference format is perfect because the field is moving so rapidly that the organizing team is in no position to know what needs to be talked about. We do know great people who will be there and it is the attendees who have a passion for learning and contributing to the event that make it the success it is.

This is the time and place that you get to discuss, share your knowledge, work on and learn about anything & everything related to Internet Identity today. You can find Books of Proceedings for all previous IIW Events here.

"IIW is a unique conference where people who are engaged in hard problems come together and make solutions to those problems. It's not just another trade show or academic exercise, IIW is a place where things get done, and that's why I keep coming back."
Justin Richer -Bespoke Engineering, Author - OAUth2 In Action

"IIW is a very efficient use of time for anyone involved in identity issues on the internet: the right people are there, the topics are relevant, and the emphasis is on exchanging ideas rather than selling products. Compared with conferences where papers are accepted months in advance, IIW's unConference format ensures an opportunity to discuss the very latest developments."
Jim Fenton - Independent Internet Technologist
