April 22-25 - Forum Deutsches Museum - Munich, Germany

This month sees the second annual European Identity Conference taking place (in Munich, April 22nd -25th) and will again be the global forum where thought leaders and practitioners in Identity Management (IM) meet to discuss major topics and trends in IM. With a line up of more than 100 speakers from technology heavyweights and emerging companies right across the globe, EIC 08 looks set to be a hotbed of discussion.

Bringing together many of the leading experts in IM, such as Kim Cameron of Microsoft, André Durand of Ping Identity, Doc Searls of Harvard Business School, Dave Kearns, Edge Zarella of KMPG, and many others, the event also has a prestigious Awards programme and ceremony where Kuppinger Cole + Partners, Conference hosts, will honour distinguished projects in IM together with other notable initiatives and innovations.

“We are delighted that so many of the world’s leading experts in Identity Management will be participating at what we hope and anticipate will be an even bigger success than in 2007,” comments Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Senior Partner of Kuppinger Cole + Partner. “With so many developments taking place in this space, it’s a very exciting time to be in IM and our colourful array of participants and topics reflects this diversity.”
