Just coming up in this first full week in February, Kantara will be participating in the TIIME workshop hosted by Kantara's own eGov WG Chair Rainer Hoerbe. We get together with our Higher Ed colleagues and interested others, as we work through identity related topics at the bleeding edge as well as refinements at the operational edge of the community. Wednesday 21st February heralds the first work-focussed meeting of the Consent Management systems Systems best practice WG, so if you have signed the Group Participation Agreement (GPA) or intend to, please do so as soon as possible so as to not miss out on anything. Later in the month, EEMA - Kantara's most active European liaison - is hosting me in Brussels at its members Fireside, a topic close to us all - the future of identity and trust.
