IX Workshop on Digital Identity Management (WGID)


The IdM (Identity Management) consists on an integrated group of policies, processes and technologies that allow organizations to treat and manipulate the identities of its users and its objects (devices) for authentication, authorization, accounting, and audit procedures.

This is an active research topic and, given its complexity and relevance, it should keep in that way for a long time. There are uncountable technical issues that the identity management systems should consider such as: easiness of use, user privacy and anonymity, security, unique authentication, scalability, fine granularity access control (based on attributes), interoperability, and total cost of ownership.

The IX Workshop on Digital Identity Management (WGID) aims to be a forum for discussion and presentation of technical works about the state of the art in technologies related to identity management. Besides that, WGID also seeks to identify the research challenges and to enable the a meeting of researchers in the area.

Instruction to Authors

IX WGID will include the presentation of papers accepted for publication, talks and a discussions panel.

Papers can be submitted in four categories:

Full papers: a complete paper should contain in up to 12 pages (including figures, tables, references, appendices and attachments) a research work that has been developed to the point of producing original and relevant results that where validated and analyzed.

Tutorials: a tutorial should contain in up to 12 pages (including figures, tables, references, appendices, and attachments, a current research topic in identity management.

Extended abstract: an extended abstract should describe in up to 4 pages (including figures, tables, references, appendices, and attachments) an ongoing research work, a computational tool and/or practical experiments. In the case of a tool and/or experiments, the abstract should contain at least the following information: description and motivation to the problem solved by the tool; architecture of the solution and description of its main features; URL where the tool is available; URL of the documentation and description of a eventual demonstration of the tool.

Light Talks: a light talk proposal should introduce in up to 2 pages (including figures, tables, references, appendices, and attachments) a new topic related to identity management.

Papers must be written in English or Portuguese; its formatting must follow SBC's template available on the SBC's portal. Submission will be done exclusively in PDF format, through the SBC's JEMS system.

After submission to the WGID, papers will be evaluated by a reviewers board in a double-blind peer review (without any identification from authors, reviewers or involved institutions) and the selected works will be organized for presentation and publication at the event proceedings. At least one of the authors of each selected work should register for the SBSeg and be present at the date and time to be announced at the event program to present the work.

A committee will select the best papers of all the papers presented in the workshop.
