Title: Identity in research infrastructure and scientific communication - IRISC
Date: 1pm Monday Sep 12th to 4pm Tuesday Sep 13th
Place: CSC premises, Helsinki, Finland
Main workshop website: http://irisc-workshop.org
Lanyrd social conference directory: http://lanyrd.com/2011/irisc/
IRISC2011 will bring together representatives from communities of identity experts, users, publishers, funders and other stakeholders under two main interrelated themes:
i) identifying & attributing authors/creators of scholarly works, with a focus on ORCID (http://www.orcid.org).
ii) identification for access management/security purposes, i.e. authentication & authorization with a focus on on federated identity management.
Specific workshop aims include:
* Raising overall awareness of key technical and non-technical challenges, opportunities and developments
* Facilitating a dialogue, cross-pollination of ideas, collaboration and coordination between diverse - and largely unconnected - communities
* Identifying & discussing existing/emerging technologies, best practices and requirements for researcher identification
The workshop format will be a combination of i) traditional plenary sessions, each followed by moderated discussion, and ii) at least two parallel, interactive breakout sessions which will focus on up to several topics within each main theme*. Confirmed speakers include representatives from eduGAIN, TERENA, ORCID, CrossRef, Open Identity Exchange, ELIXIR and others. Further information, including workshop agenda, speaker lineup and venue/travel information**, is available on http://irisc-workshop.org.
* Plenary sessions are close to finalized, but there is still considerable scope for influencing the breakout sessions (or even for additional breakouts). Don't hesitate to get in touch if you wish to contribute.
** There is a limited pool of funds available for contributing towards participants' travel and accommodation costs. This support is available to students, junior faculty and others with limited access to travel funds.
