SDW 2014 Programme
|SDW Speaker Template|
SDW 2014's full speaking program will be announced in early 2014, after a comprehensive international speaker selection process.
GLOBAL CALL FOR SPEAKERS NOW OPEN
How to Apply
We highly encourage those at senior executive level, those at the forefront of research and development, market analysts, working group members, and end users/governments that have (or are currently implementing) a cutting-edge case history. Speaker applications from foreign nation governments are particularly welcomed.
Please note that we strongly encourage submissions from the international community. However, contributions must be submitted in English, and if accepted, speakers must have a good command of the English language.
Successful contributions will be evaluated on the basis of relevance, content, originality and expertise/experience of the speaker. New case histories, especially when presented by end-users will be favoured, as will speeches from top-level company or organisational representatives. N.B. This should not dissuade submissions by those with specialist technical knowledge, or those leading research efforts.
Topics being considered
The main themes for SDW 2014 are:

- Beyond identity documents: tax stamps, secure labels, ticketing and more…
- Lightning Talks - Establishing the authenticity of identity
SDW 2014 will bring together the best minds in the industry who will discuss, debate and explore the future of secure credentials and robust identity assurance.
To facilitate this process we will be employing several Conferencing 2.0 techniques which are guaranteed to take the event to the the next level.
A Lightning talk is a high-energy presentation lasting only a few minutes (seven minutes) and should get straight to the heart of the talk.
Slides are not obligatory; the presentation content can range from: asking a question; inviting people to help you with a project; key pointers and advice from an installation; tell a short cautionary story. The options are limitless - except you only have minutes to get across your message…
Audiences can get very excited by this style of presenting - and will be sure to seek you out later if they found your talk stimulated questions.
The SDW Debate will have high levels of audience participation. The topics will be varied, topical and, at times, controversial.
Speakers will be kept to topic and be challenged by the audience and moderators, so they must know their area inside out. But we also rely on the expertise of the audience to keep the session flowing…
