Risk, Rewards and Repercussions, 29-30 September, Gaithersburg, MD

Proposal Guidelines

The program committee invites proposal submissions for presentations and/or panel discussions.  Submissions will be judged not only on the quality and originality of the material, but also on how well they draw valuable lessons and contribute to a better understanding of the current status, the future prospects of identity managment, the role and relevance of emerging technologies.

The Program Committee will peer-review all proposals and reserves the right to adapt or restructure proposals submitted to ensure an interesting and technically compelling program. Below are a few more details regarding the conference presentations:

  • Presentations will generally be about 30 minutes in length, including question & answer time.  Authors may express their wish for a longer or shorter presentation timeslot, although the program committee may in some cases decide differently due to program constraints.
  • Panel sessions should be 60 minutes in length. Proposals for panels should include the topic, three to four potential panelists (name and/or role) and proposed format (e.g. Q&A, short presentations).

OASIS will publish online proceedings of the conference presentations. Authors should arrange any necessary releases for publication prior to submitting proposals.

Speaker substitutions are not permitted, except in the case of an emergency and are subject to Program Committee approval. All selected speakers will receive a complimentary registration to attend the event.
