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!
Why you should come ~ This is the time and place that you get to discuss, share your knowledge, work on and learn about anything & everyting related to Internet Idenity today. Topics at the last IIW held in October 2015 included:
- Emerging Identity protocols, like UMA and Open ID Connect
- Blockchain & Identity
- OAuth security / Being an OAuth provider
- Potential Roles for BlockChain in Identity
- API's & Domain of Ones Own
- Alternatives to SSL
- Personal clouds, stores, lockers, vaults & other first person data systems & services
- IoT (The Internet of Things)
- VRM (Vendor Relationship Management)
- Data liberation and portability
- OIDC vs SAML / OIDC OP Testing
- IoM (The Internet of Me)
- Personal sovereignty
- International Perspectives
- Consent receipts in UMA (user managed access)
- Earned (rather than coerced) customer loyalty
- Marketing when customers hold most of the cards
- New forms of currency - like Bitcoin
- Privacy in the Age of Surveillance
IIW is at its heart a participatory conference. IIW is an unConference. It has no keynotes or panels, so it's about getting stuff done! Through dozens of sessions, lunches & two evening meals (provide by our generous sponsors) you'll have plenty of chances to exchange ideas and make new professional connections.
The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. Doors will open at 8:00 each day with espresso and light breakfast.
Tuesday Day 1 will begin at 9:00AM with introduction/orientation followed by Agenda Creation. There will be 5 working sessions
Wednesday Day 2 will have Agenda Creation beginning at 9:00AM. There will be 5 working sessions and a Demo Hour after lunch.
Thursday Day 3 Will begin at 9:00AM with Agenda Creation. There will be 5 working sessions and we will end by 4pm.
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.
"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 - Principal Research Scientist, The MITRE Corporation
How does it work ~ After the brief introduction on the first day we create the agenda when we are face to face the first each morning of the conference. We do this in part because the field is moving so rapidly that the organizing team are 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 to learn and contribute to the event that make it the success it is.
For a visual idea about how this works, take a look at this Video Montage of IIW #15 created byTechGoddessJudith. You can find Books of Proceedings (notes from the sessions that were held) for all previous IIW Events here AND a high resolution (PDF) copy of the April 2015 / IIWXX #20 Book of Proceedings here.
"IIW is a melting pot out of which emerge ideas to change the world."
William Heath - Chairman Mydex CIC UK
The growing list of topics put forth by those who have registered for IIW #22 is posted here: http://iiw.idcommons.net/IIW_22_Proposed_Topics
"IIW is a very efficient use of time for anyone involved in idenity issues on the internet: the right people are there, teh topics are relevant, and the emphasis is on exchanging ideas rather then selling products. Compared with conferences where papers are accepted months in advance, IIW's unConference format ensures an opportinity to discuss the very latest developments."
Jim Fenton - Independent Internet Technologist
