It seems that this time of year the conference circuit begins to intensify before taking a break for summer vacations. Unfortunately I am not able to join the identerati at IIW this week, but here is the schedule for the rest of spring and summer:
European Identity Conference: Located in beautiful Munich, this promises to be another excellent event. Of particular intrigue is the fact that Craig Burton will be joining KuppingerCole as an analyst – very exciting news! In addition to Axiomatics sharing an exhibit floor booth with Ping Identity, I will be participating in the following sessions
- Adopting IAM Standards in the Enterprise: A panel session moderated by Dave Kearns Wednesday at 10:30am
- XACML and Beyond – Solutions for a New Need-to-Share Paradigm: A panel session moderated by Sachar Paulus Wednesday at 2:00pm
- What We Can Expect to See at EIC 2012: This is the closing session for EIC 2011 where I will join Tim Cole and Sachar Paulus to discuss trends we have seen occurring over the last couple of years and look ahead to what we might expect to see as hot topics next year at EIC. Normally people give their predictions in December, we will get ahead of everyone and give some predictions in May – should be a lot of fun!
Glue Conference: This is one of Eric Norlin’s creations and promises to be an interesting and informative event – particularly for you developers out there. A new program was introduced this year where Alcatel-Lucent has funded “demo pods” in the exhibitor space for interesting startup vendors. So, a big thank you to Alcatel-Lucent and the selection committee for picking Axiomatics as a demo pod participant.
Cloud Identity Summit: 2011 is the second year for the Cloud Identity Summit, hosted by Ping Identity. Just give a quick look at the agenda and speaker lineup and I expect you will be registering immediately. Plus, Andre has lined up 15 workshops on various cloud and identity topics… 15 workshops, are you kidding me? What conference gives you that kind of learning opportunity? I am pleased to be giving The Essential XACML Primer workshop again this year – please come out to Keystone, CO for this amazing event!
Gartner Catalyst Conference: Axiomatics will have a hospitality suite for the first time at Catalyst this year. For those of you familiar with the Catalyst format, hospitality suites are unlike exhibit spaces at any other conference. They are fun, themed based settings where you can enjoy yourself while mingling with other attendees – and learn a little about vendor offerings. Please join us at Catalyst and look for a very unusual and fun giveaway in the Axiomatics suite.
