Stephanie Cardenas, Communications Director for The Center for Identity at the University of Texas at Austin (UTA), has published a Call for Papers and Participation in the Second Annual Global Forum on Identity (ID360) to be held April 30-May 1, 2013 at the AT&T Conference Center on the UTA campus. The ID360 conference is aimed at building a community of participants interested in fostering research, development and implementation of innovative solutions needed to meet current and future challenges to identity fraud, theft, misuse and detection. Participants are encouraged to focus on understanding, describing, and securing the Identity Ecosystem, including trusted identities for individuals, organizations, and devices.
The Center for Identity was founded in the fall of 2010 and Dr. Suzanne Barber, AT&T Endowed Professor in Engineering at UTA, serves as the Center Executive Director. The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) has been an Academic Partner and active participant in the Center for Identity since its formation, and Dr. Yinle Zhou, formerly a student in the UALR Information Quality Graduate Program and now an Architect in the IBM InfoSphere MDM Group, was the winner of the best Academic Paper Award at the First Annual ID360 conference held in April 2012. Other academic partners include Indiana University, Syracuse University, and The University of Tulsa. There are more than 30 other government agencies and business that also support the Center including IBM, LexisNexis, VISA, the FBI, US Marshals Service, and US Secret Service.
