A workshop held this week in Helsinki, Finland brings together representatives from communities of identity experts, users, funders and other stakeholders to address two main interrelated themes:
- identifying & attributing authors/creators of scholarly works, with a focus on ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID initiative
- identification for access management purposes, i.e. with a focus on federated identity management
Sessions address challenges in identifying and attributing knowledge contributors, e-infrastructure possibilities for authenticating and authorizing researchers, unique identifiers and the digital scholar, and researchers’ needs for an authentication and authorization infrastructure.
