2021 CAMP Week Call for Proposals

InCommon and GÉANT announce the opening of the call for proposals for 2021 CAMP Week (October 4-8, 2021).

See the tentative programme here: https://www2.internet2.edu/l/66332/2021-03-31/czjc7v

We invite you to submit a proposal for this online conference. You will find topic areas and a timeline below.

What is CAMP Week?

CAMP Week (formerly the IAM track at TechEx) includes:

  • CAMP (Campus Architecture and Middleware Planning), a traditional conference with track sessions comprised of your proposals
  • Advance CAMP (ACAMP), our unconference that features discussions of coming challenges and opportunities related to identity and access management

What are some topic ideas?

CAMP track sessions can consist of panel discussions, presentations, and/or demos, and typically include case studies, best practices, and solutions to trust and identity challenges. Here are some suggestions to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Security and Identity and Access Management (particularly with continued work-at-home, hybrid and remote learning situations)
  • Issues and solutions in managing identities (business drivers, for example)
  • IAM changes and challenges associated with remote and hybrid operations (access control systems and policies, for example)
  • Identifying and solving challenges related to privacy, such as access control and user consent
  • Your story (case study? best practices?) of solving an IAM problem at your organization. If a campus partner or stakeholder was involved, bring them along as a panelist (at no extra charge!)
  • Establishing or supporting research collaborations or virtual organizations
  • International collaborations
  • Managing service providers (by academia, research, or industry) in the InCommon Federation
  • Managing permissions, group management, and service provisioning access, both locally and to the cloud
  • Identity integrations for cloud services
  • Adoption and use of the InCommon Trusted Access Platform components
  • Other areas of interest in accessing services, data, or other resources

“Virtual” doesn’t have to mean “just another Zoom session.” Consider including some type of interactivity as part of your session.
