Internet Identity Workshop IIW XXXI


October 20, 2020 all-day

You belong at IIW this Fall!  You’ll acquire the real-time pulse of genuinely disruptive technologies that are the foundation of today’s important Internet movements.

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!

IIW XXXI will be our second online event. While we miss being with everyone in person, we have found that the online event isn’t just an acceptable substitute, but a real workshop in its own right with considerable advantages. Being virtual will allow many more people from around the world to participate in the important discussions that happen at each IIW.

“From my perspective, IIW is the seminal conference for the digital identity space. The feedback & technical insight garnered here is so invaluable for my company that we build our internal product roadmap around the twice-yearly conference. I was admittedly skeptical about the event going fully virtual, but the organizers managed the transition with little to no loss in collaborative nature or connections. I was very pleased with the value and turnout, and am already looking forward to the next one!”

How It Works

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!

Our schedule will be much the same as the online event in April, with some additional session times. The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening circle (the same as when we meet F2F in Mountain View).

Through dozens of sessions,you’ll have plenty of chances to present your ideas, engage in challenging dialog, and make new professional connections.  The Open Space unConference format is perfect for a rapidly moving field where the organizing team cannot what needs to be discussed. We know great people will be at IIW XXXI. The attendees who have a passion for learning and contributing to the event makes 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.

“IIW XXX completely changed my mind about ‘virtual conferences’. I was quite skeptical that it could be even remotely as effective as the in-person IIW events—of which I’ve never missed a single one. But IIW XXX not only captured most of the same interactions, it actually proved to be MORE INTENSE than the in-person event because there are multiple channels alive at the same time—the Zoom Rooms, the Zoom chat, and then the Garden rooms and side channels that form and keep going throughout the event. Plus being virtual meant many more people around the world could attend. In fact, it was so engaging that I left the event feeling that at least one of every two IIWs should be virtual now.”
