InCommon Confab: Scaling Community Trust

April 26 (8 am – 5 pm), April 27 (8 am – noon)
Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, Virginia
REGISTRATION: Registration is now open for the 2012 InCommon Confab, April 26-27, in Arlington, Virginia.

TOPICS: This fast-paced, information-filled workshop will give you the opportunity to learn how the InCommon community is using trust services to enhance users’ experiences and scale online relationships.

AT THE InCOMMON CONFAB, you can explore one-and-a-half days of sessions covering the gamut of topics related to federated identity, certificates, assurance, and who’s doing what. After each topic, you’ll hear more about how to get involved and connect up with others. This is a great opportunity to compare notes with colleagues working in the same area and learn what they are doing.

NEW TO THE FEDERATION and want to know more about recommended practices? We’ll have an entire track just for you as well as a track for those who use federation extensively.

PARTICIPANTS AT ALL POINTS on the adoption curve--from those who are just getting started with InCommon to those who have been active for years--will benefit from in-depth discussions and fast-paced presentations.

Topics will include:

  • Getting Your Return on Investment: Scaling the Federation
  • Connecting collaborators in research and the academy.
  • Using InCommon Recommended Practices
  • Understanding assurance in identity
  • Deploying stronger authentication

AUDIENCE: InCommon higher education, research and corporate participants are encouraged to send technologists, IT leadership, and leadership from closely-aligned areas to learn about these issues together and leave with plans for furthering efforts back home.

REGISTRATION: Registration is now open at the Internet2 Spring Member Meeting website. Please note that you DO NOT have to attend the Spring Member Meeting to attend the Confab.

HOTEL and TRAVEL: The meeting will take place at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in the Crystal City area of Arlington, Virginia. The hotel is just one Metro stop from Washington National Airport.
