ID Collaboration Day

Across User-Centric, Enterprise and Government Identity Initiatives

Monday February 14th, prior to RSA North America

Registration Here

This event is being jointly produced by the Kantara Initiative and IIW producers (Doc Searls, Phil Windley and Kaliya Hamlin), Identity Commons.

Join us in connecting the big enterprise resources with individual contributors (big and small) The focus of this event will be to explore the emerging synergies between the user-centric and enterprise communities.

On-going perceptions of a struggle between these two communities have been written about and explored by some of the brightest minds in the identity management and privacy spaces.  However, given this event takes place on Valentine’s Day the, Identity Collaboration Day will take the inverse approach and focus on what these groups actually have in common and how we can, and ARE, working together to leverage the sweet spots within both areas of approach.  We hope that you’ll join us in working to dispel negative competitive perceptions and work towards harmonized approaches for the good of all!

We imagine a whole range of interesting topics that user-centric and enterprise communities contribute to will be put forth. You can see the range of topics covered at the most recent IIW in November here on their wiki.   Kantara’s current list of working groups is here and latest announcements can be found here.

So…. if you are involved in the Identity Commons or Kantara Initiative, OIX, Open ID, Information Cards or anything else identity related come and spend a day collaborating together!

Like IIW, the agenda will be created live the day of the event by the participants.  Ideas for session topics are gathered as attendees register and they will be shared online leading up to the event.

Due to the many different activities happening on the Monday before RSA, we have divided the day into 2 distinct sessions – morning and afternoon. Tickets are available for the entire day or for just the Morning or Afternoon session. Agenda creation will happen a second time just after lunch at the beginning of the Afternoon session.

The venue is in downtown San Francisco, just a short walking distance, cab or subway ride from the RSA Convention Center.
