OID 2021 : Open Identity Summit 2021
Call For Papers
Open Identity Summit 2021 - Call for Papers
June 1st - 2nd 2020, Copenhagen, Denmark
February 15th, 2021 deadline for electronic submissions via
The aim of Open Identity Summit 2021 is to link practical experiences and requirements with academic innovations. Focus areas will be Research and Applications in the area of Identity Management, Trust Services, Open Source, Internet of Things, Distributed Ledgers and 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 in the area of electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions. Reliable identity management is an essential building block for many applications and services such as innovative payment services, digital manufacturing, and other innovative applications in the area of e-health, e-government, distributed ledgers, cloud computing, data management for artificial intelligence, and the internet of things.
While there are already plenty of successful applications in which those techniques are applied to safeguard authenticity, integrity and confidentiality, there are still many closely related areas, which demand further research. These include technical solutions that provide higher levels of transparency, intervenability and accountability.
We invite stakeholders and technical experts from public administration, industry, science and academia to propose contributions to the program of the workshop. Submissions should be short papers (5-6 pages) or full papers (max. 12 pages) in English. The program committee will review submitted papers. Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and are planned to be published in the GI-Edition Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) and listed in Scopus.
