What Is IIW
A Brief Explanation

The Internet Identity Workshop has been finding, probing and solving identity issues twice every year since 2005. We meet in the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. Every IIW moves topics, code and projects downfield. Name an identity topic and it’s likely that more substantial discussion and work has been done at IIW than any other conference!

How It Works
A Summary

IIW is at its heart a participatory conference, it is an Open Space unConference. It has no keynotes or panels, so it’s about getting stuff done!

The agenda is created live each day by attendees present at the opening of the day. The doors will open at 8:00 with espresso and light breakfast and Agenda Creation happens at 9:00 followed by five 5 working sessions.

Through dozens of sessions, lunches & two evening meals (provided by our generous Sponsors) you will have plenty of chances to exchange ideas and make new professional connections. The unConference format is perfect because the field is moving so rapidly that the organizing team is in no position to know what needs to be talked about. We do know great people who will be there and it is the attendees who have a passion for learning and contributing to the event that make it the success it is.

This is the time and place that you get to discuss, share your knowledge, work on and learn about anything & everything related to Internet Identity today. You can find Books of Proceedings for all previous IIW Events HERE.
