Meeting Information

TERENA and SURFnet kindly invite you to the second VAMP workshop on September 30th & October 1st, 2013 in Espoo, Finland. Espoo is situated in the Helsinki Metropolitan area.

The Goal of VAMP2013 is to foster the deployment of identity management and collaboration tools within the research community. The organisers invite IT architects of international Research Communities, identity federations and providers of (collaborative) infrastructures for research to participate in this interactive workshop.


The design of the workshop is to provide structured presentations on exemplar deployments within specific Research Communities, as well as open discussions for Research Communities architects and infrastructure experts to share use cases, best practices, infrastructural solutions, etc.

VAMP2013 sequels VAMP2012. By the end of the workshop, participants will know about the latest developments in identity federation support for Research Communities, how they can (and cannot) use identity federation, what are the experiences of Research Communities with collaborative infrastructures, and what tools are available for strengthening collaboration.


We invite everyone involved in setting up or designing collaborative infrastructures for Research Communities, or otherwise interested, to join us on September 30th and October 1st. Research Communities willing to share their experiences with collaborative infrastructures are explicitly invited to forward their suggestions. Please contact us at:
