Tuesday, August 13

Time Session
  Breakfast on your own
8:30 - 8:50 am All Hands
Who is here? How to get the most out of our time together.
9:00 - 10:45 am Identity Management in 1.75 Hours
A community-led workshop, this interactive mini-course gives you the basics to get started with IAM.
10:45 - 11:00 am Break
11:00am - Noon Federation is a Team Sport
Federation works best for users when everyone does their part. Doing things right from the get-go will pay big dividends down the road whether you operate services, manage identities, or both.
Noon - 1:30 pm [Much Food, Conversation and Email Checking Here]
1:30 - 2:15 pm Federation Basics - Who Does What and Why
We’ll discuss InCommon-related roles at your organization and at InCommon Operations, and the responsibilities that come with each. Looking to offer services or support users’ access to what’s out there? We’ll have separate discussions for both, so you can explore your questions with your peers.
2:20 - 3:05 pm Federation Basics - It's All About the User
Single sign-on, attributes, permissions - it’s all about getting the end-user to the service quickly and painlessly. We’ll look at how you can make the difference between the good, the bad, and the ugly of user experiences.
3:05 - 3:20 pm Well-Deserved Break
Cold and hot caffeine (or non-caffeine) and snacks.
3:20 - 4:05 pm Federation Basics: Technology and Interoperability
Now let's get to the technology. We’ll also discuss how the decisions you make today will affect things down the road (for better or for worse).
4:15 - 5:15 pm [Your Item Here]
After an intense day, you will have questions. Get rapid-fire answers from a panel of experts.
6:00 - 7:30 pm What's On Tap?
It’s Milwaukee after all, known for beer (oh, and that big lake). Join us for some identity sessioning, beer and food.

Time Session
  Breakfast on your own
8:30 - 8:45am Day 2: Stand Up* with Doughnuts
*”A brief meeting that is conducted standing up, because it is not intended to last longer than a few minutes, so there is no need for people to sit down and get comfortable.”
9:00 - Noon Minds On!
Choose three intense sessions from a list of six. Our current ideas include managing your organization's information in the InCommon Trust Registry, Identity Provider as a Service, researcher access to services, and Shibboleth made easy. Caffeine and snacks will see us through!
Noon - 1:30 pm [Much Food, Conversation and Email Checking Here]
1:30 - 2:15 pm And Now for Something Completely Different: Solutions
Now that you’re an expert on the InCommon Federation, let’s do a deep dive into your organization’s identity questions. Following up on our intro to IAM on day one, we’ll talk through high level architecture and set the stage for the Solutions Salon. Also included will be a wee bit about the open-source InCommon Trusted Access Platform and how that maps to identity-related business architecture.
2:20 - 3:05 pm Solutions Salon: One
During the next two time slots, pick two from four general IAM-related challenges and walk through various solutions. We’ll touch on the InCommon Trusted Access Platform options, but you may have your own systems you’d like to explore as well. We’re thinking that one session will look at enabling access for “others” (parents, alumni, visiting scholars, on-site conference attendees, etc), and another will explore “giving new students access to online stuff.”
3:05 pm - 3:20 pm Well-Deserved Break
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.
3:20 - 4:05 pm Solutions Salon: Deux
In part two of the Solutions Salon, we’re thinking that covering “managing access with groups” and “enabling research collaborations” would be good. Have another in mind? Let us know.
4:10 - 5:30 pm ANSWER ALL THE THINGS!
Today’s sessions may have generated more questions than they answered or caused you to think of how something may or may not fit with what you have. We have people for that! Join us for this fast paced session and put the community’s experts to the test.

Time Session

8:30 - 8:45 am Day 3: Stand Up* With Doughnuts
*“A brief meeting that is conducted standing up, because it is not intended to last longer than a few minutes, so there is no need for people to sit down and get comfortable.” But with a fry cake.
9:00 - 11:30 am Software and Operations Salon
As an extension of yesterday’s Solutions Salon, we’ll focus on some specifics of either the software you heard about or some really keen operational approaches (like DevOps and Moving to the Cloud) that we hear are catching on. You can pick two of four sessions.
11:30 am - Noon Chocolate is a Food Group
We saved the best for last. Make sure you book your return flight for after 2 pm. Trust us on this one.
