Call for Proposals

  Identiverse 2021

  June 21, 2021 - July 2, 2021

  Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center

Identiverse® is the premier annual conference for the identity security industry. 2021 will be our twelfth year bringing together the best across industry and enterprise to share insights, synthesize new ideas, and advance the state of modern digital identity and security. Our annual open call for presentations solicits presenters to contribute their ideas, experience, and perspective.

For Identiverse 2021 we have a particular (but not exclusive!) focus on personal identity.

In our increasingly digital world, identity systems are evolving to keep us productive, and to assure everyone's safety and privacy. We are exploring more personal ways to authenticate, to verify, to authorize, and to be authorized. We are developing identity standards, tools, and solutions that put us-individuals-at the center. And we are learning to apply these new technologies and techniques to build new solutions and to improve existing systems. Modern identity systems are the enabler for services and businesses that put people first.

Identiverse is an inclusive event, and we welcome proposals from anyone who has experience and expertise to contribute. We're always excited to reconnect with alumni and to welcome new faces to our community. This year's content committee will evaluate proposals on their merit and on their relevance to the conference focus. Identiverse 2021 will operate as a hybrid event, with a blend of virtual and in-person material; and we may also review proposals for potential blog or podcast coverage outside of the main agenda.

Please remember that Identiverse is an industry conference. Our attendees won't tolerate product pitches or vendor-biased content. We receive more submissions than the agenda can accommodate, so we can't promise a slot for all submissions-even great ones. But we can guarantee that your presentation can't be chosen if you don't submit a proposal!

Depending on your presentation and presenter type, you will receive either a discounted or complimentary pass, as well as access to session video, if recorded, after the event (note that we cannot guarantee to record video of all sessions).

Deadline for Submissions: Friday, January 8, 2021
Acceptance Notification: no later than Friday, February 12, 2021

Additional details about the Call for Presentations process are available on the Identiverse website. Please read through this carefully, even if you've attended or presented in previous years-some of the details have changed.

If you're interested in presenting at Identiverse, please click 'Start Application', and complete the details as requested. You're welcome to submit multiple proposals.

We look forward to seeing your submissions!
