Call for Papers


Building on the success of IDMAN 2007 and 2010 (which were held in Rotterdam and Oslo, respectively), this conference focuses on the theory, technologies and applications of identity management.

IFIP IDMAN 2013, the 3rd IFIP WG 11.6 Working Conference on Policies & Research in Identity Management, will take place on the 8th and 9th of April 2013 at Royal Holloway, University of London, UK.

Conference scope

The world of the 21st century is, more than ever, global and impersonal. As a result of increasing cyber fraud and cyber terrorism, the demand for better technical methods of identification is growing, not only in companies and organisations but also in the world at large. Moreover, in our society digital identities increasingly play a role in the provision of eGovernment and eCommerce services. For practical reasons, Identity Management Systems are needed that are usable and interoperable.

At the same time, individuals increasingly leave trails of personal data when using the Internet, which allows them to be profiled and which may be stored for many years to come. Technical trends such as Cloud Computing and pervasive computing make personal data processing non-transparent, and make it increasingly difficult for users to control their personal spheres. As part of this tendency, surveillance and monitoring are increasingly present in society, both in the public and private domains. Whilst the original intention is to contribute to security and safety, surveillance and monitoring might, in some cases, have unintended or even contradictory effects. Moreover, the omnipresence of surveillance and monitoring systems might directly conflict with public and democratic liberties. These developments raise substantial new challenges for privacy and identity management at the technical, social, ethical, regulatory, and legal levels.

Identity management challenges the information security research community to focus on interdisciplinary and holistic approaches, while retaining the benefits of previous research efforts.
