Talks, workshops, panels…


20 - 23 October
Internet Identity Workshop #31


The Internet Identity Workshop has been finding, probing and solving identity issues twice every year since 2005. Every IIW moves topics, code and projects downfield. Name an identity topic and it’s likely that more substantial discussion and work has been done at IIW than any other conference!

Jolocom is an official sponsor of the DocCenter at IIW #31.

31 October


What better place to reflect and discuss power than in the atmosphere of a nuclear power plant that, due to a referendum, was never put into operation.

Between 30th and 31st of October, the historic site will be used as a “reactor” to convert the ideas, knowledge and know-how into democratic and civic energy. For one weekend, the AKW Zwentendorf will thus become a hotspot for activists, actors of civil society, scientists, and artists.

Kai will be moderating a fishbowl panel (starting at 15:00) featuring Peter Parycek, Julia Kloiber, and Martin Atassi.

10 - 12 December

Webinar: Use of DIDs in development projects

WSIS Forum 2020

The World Summit on the Information Society Forum 2020 represents the world’s largest annual gathering of the ‘ICT for development’ community.

In 2018, the World Bank estimated that 1.1 billion people do neither have an analogue nor a digital ID. Yet, digital identification and credentials are a central element to a digital and inclusive society. When digital records are linked to a unique ID, #privacy and #data #protection risks arise.

Join the #WSISForum workshop hosted by  University of Geneva, Geneva Macro Labs, and INATBA to learn how those risks can be countered with the concept of DIDs. Irene from Jolocom will be joining the panel of distinguished speakers.

DWeb Meetup

2020—The State of the Decentralized Web

It’s 2020 and the Decentralized Web has working code. Protocols used by dozens of projects. Projects employing 100+ developers. But if you zoom out, where is the DWeb Ecosystem as a whole? What will it take to scale to widespread audiences?

DWeb Meetup June brings you two new reports on decentralization and a free user experience design clinic, meant to bring the report’s recommendations to life.

Plus, we’re experimenting with a new meetup platform:, using WebRTC to create a virtual gathering space complete with a beach, bar, auditorium and hang out spaces.

Decentralized Identity Foundation F2F - Virtual
Bi-annual community meeting

The entire decentralized identity community is invited to join the open online virtual meeting. We will discuss the current state of the decentralized identity stack, the status of individual elements and how the path towards interoperability should look.

While many of the discussions will center around work items developed within DIF, most key technologies will be presented at the meeting in the spirit of cross-community collaboration.

Join the meeting to make interoperability happen!
