OID 2013: Open Identity Summit 2013
Bad Staffelstein, Deutschland
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).
Open Identity Summit 2013 on 10.-11.09.2013 is jointly organized by the Special Interest Groups BIOSIG, CRYPTO and PET and the regional chapter Upper Franconia within the German Computer Science Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik), the EU-funded FutureID Project, the Open eCard Project, the Federal Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media (BITKOM), the Competence Center for Applied Security Technology (CAST), the open source initiative “Deutsche Wolke”, the European Association for eIdentity and Security (EEMA), the Open Cloud Initiative (OCI), the OpenID Foundation, the Open Identity Exchange (OIX), the Open Source Business Alliance (OSBA), the Open Source Integration Initiative (OSII), the TeleTrusT IT Security Association Germany, the SkIDentity Project, which aims at providing trustworthy identities for the cloud, and last but not least the Trusted Cloud Program supported by the German government.
