For all of you that wish OpenID had feature X or worked like Y, this is the OpenID Summit for YOU!

This Summit will be for participants ONLY.

You are either part of the Problem (you don't use OpenID because of X or Y and are willing to present), or you are part of the Solution (you are or will be active in an OpenID Working Group).

This is NOT a Summit for those that want to learn about OpenID.

We will start off after lunch on Monday, April 5th with short presentations about the Problem, followed by an evening of beer and food and lively discussion. 

Tuesday, April 6th will be a full day (starting at 9am) where we will have technology presentations, open space for ad hoc topics, and then next step discussions for Working Groups.

The 2010 theme for the OpenID Technical Committee is OpenID v Next. Our goal is to pull the community together so that we can understand what we collectively need the technology to do next, and kick off Working Groups to make that happen. This Summit is that start of the process. 

Agenda suggestions? Interested in giving a presentation? Other questions? Shoot specs@openid.net an email.

Topic Guidelines

We are looking for people to give presentations about the issues the barriers their organization has in deploying OpenID either as an OP or RP. We are also looking for technologists to give presentations on how to resolve the issues identified.

We are not looking for presentations on "Here is how OpenID works", "My thoughts on OpenID", or "Here is what my company has done / will do with OpenID". These are all important presentations, but this is not the right venue.


Presentation Format

Each talk will have an enforced 10 minute time limit, followed by 5 minutes for Q&A and getting the next speaker lined up. We have lots of break times for people to discuss the topics in more detail. We also will reserve a number of open slots that can be used for followup talks Tuesday afternoon.

Please prepare your presentation ahead of time and take at least 20 minutes to practice running through your presentation a couple times. If you do the work creating an presentation that effectively communicates your message, you are more likely to get people to solve your problem or adopt your solution. As an added incentive, we will also have a prize for the best presentation.
