Call for Papers

March 28th – March 29th

The aim of Open Identity Summit 2019 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, End-to-End Encryption 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. At the time 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, cloud computing and the internet of things.

While there are already plenty of successful applications in which those techniques are applied to safeguard the authenticity, integrity and confidentiality, 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 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).
