April 23, 2020
The 30th edition of the Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) will be taking place from April 28th to 30th, and unlike previous editions, this one will be totally online. The event provides a fantastic opportunity for the Sovrin community to come together to accelerate the SSI mission of “decentralized identity for all”.
Someone once said that IIW is like six months on a mailing list, and while the event will be “going virtual” this year, it is still worth at least several months.
For the past 15 years, IIW has played a major part in cultivating a community which is passionate about enabling people to control their own digital identities. Check out IIW’s pitch video below.
With Sovrin’s transition to a volunteer-led organization and the ongoing discussions surrounding COVID-19 and the corresponding tech solutions for contact tracing and immunity certificates using verifiable credentials (VCs), there is lots to talk about.
The IIW schedule can be found via this link: https://internetidentityworkshop.com/schedule/ There will be a plethora of sessions to support different timezones for those wishing to participate. Sessions are an hour and 15 minutes long with a 15 minute break in between. A few important points to know include:
On the last day of IIW, April 30th, the Sovrin community plans to self-organize a session (or sessions) at some time during the day to continue community discussions on the evolution of the Sovrin Ecosystem. The specific time will be made known the day thereof, but if you have any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
