The SANReN Competency area, TENET and ASAUDIT will be hosting a follow-on workshop about Federated Identity Management (FIM). This is a long overdue workshop – the original event that kicked off the Federation project occurred nearly 2 years ago. The focus of this event will be on the strategic direction of the Federation. There are 3 main aims of this workshop:
1. Provide feedback on the work that has been done to date
2. Discuss the structure of the Federation moving forward
3. Get community’s input regarding important decisions that need to be made for the Federation
The logistics for the event are as follows:
Venue: Ruby Auditorium, CSIR International Convention Centre, CSIR, Pretoria Date: 27th February 2015 (1 day event) Start Time: 8:30 for 9:00 End Time: 17:00
The workshop is free to attend. However, please confirm with me if you are going to attend by emailing me on smammen(at)csir.co.za. Please feel free to distribute this message to whomever you think needs to attend this event.
