Paving the Way for Research Collaboration
Plan to attend the August IAM Online to hear about research collaborations and what you can do to help (or hinder) people on your campus as they seek access. Our speakers
will discuss the services they offer, the need for collaboration, and what happens when a researcher or scholar hits a roadblock.
Chris Whalen, from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is part of the National Institutes of Health. He is the International Program Director for the Office
of CyberInfrastructure and Computational Biology and will discuss a massive re-engineering of the identity management operation and how it will impact identity providers.
Kathleen Fitzpatrick, from the Modern Language Association, will discuss the MLA (and associated societies) project, Humanities Commons, which envisions using federated identities as
the linchpin for access.
Scott Koranda, of the LIGO project, on the impact of eduGAIN, external IdPs, and why researchers make the choices they do when it comes to access.
Von Welch, director of Indiana University’s Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research and a member of the InCommon Steering Committee, will moderate this session and
provide his perspective on the needs of researchers in an era of global services and interaction.
Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Associate Executive Director and Director of Scholarly Communication, Modern Language Association
