Open Identity Summit 2013

Open Identity Sumit 2013 - 10./11.09.2013 - Kloster Banz/Germany


The aim of Open Identity Summit 2013 is to link practical experiences and requirements with academic innovations. Focus areas will be Research and Applications in the area of Identity Management and Open Source with a special focus on Cloud Computing

Open standards and interfaces as well as open source technologies play a central role in the current identity management landscape as well as in emerging future scenarios based on cloud computing for example.

While there are already plenty of successful applications in which those techniques are used to guarantee the authenticity and integrity of entities, there are still many closely related areas which demand further research.  

We invite stakeholder and technical experts from public administration, industry, science and academia to propose contributions to the program of the workshop. Submissions should be extended abstracts (3-4 pages) or full papers (max. 12 pages) in English. Submitted abstracts and papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and are planned to be published in the GI-Edition Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI).
