Call for Papers
Open Identity Summit 2015
November 10 - 11, 2015, 
Berlin, Germany
June 22nd, 2015 extended deadline
for electronic submissions via

The aim of the Open Identity Summit 2015 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

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 according to the eIDAS
regulation (2014/910/EC), trustworthy end-to-end encryption and
innovative applications in the area of e-health, e-government and
cloud computing for example. While there are already plenty of
successful applications in which those techniques are used 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 (ca. 12 pages) in
English. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee.

Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and are planned to
be published in the GI-Edition Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI).
