The First International Workshop on Identity in the Information Society

28-30 May 2008 Arona, Lago Maggiore, Italy

Identity is now a key issue for citizens, business and the state. The workshop will explore the developing relationships between identity, security and privacy in an information-intensive society that in the name of better marketing or more efficient delivery of goods and services relentlessly tracks physical persons, their financial transactions, and their health.

The workshop on Identity in the Information Society invites innovative research papers ranging across different disciplinary sources, reflecting the broad nature of the topic with its interwoven concerns of law, technology, and information systems alongside other social, political and management issues.

The workshop is associated with the Identity in the Information Society (IDIS) Journal, providing a structured route for authors developing journal articles. Papers presented at the workshop will be considered (by peer-review) for publication in IDIS. The IDIS journal has been founded from the work of the EU FIDIS project.
