Karen Hanson (Assistant Registrar) and I ran a half-day workshop at the AACRAO Technology Conference on Identity and Access Management (IAM) and the Registrar’s role in IAM. We had a great time even though the session was Sunday at 8AM. The slides are here: AACRAO 2007 IDM Slides
We had a mix of people from central IT to Registrars in the audience. We had schools that had fairly mature IAM systems to some who were just starting. It was a fun time and there was good conversations.
Karen and I also had fun running around Minneapolis. We had great food at Zelo and Masa and listened to the Spaghetti Western String Company. We also saw the Picasso exhibit at the Walker Art Museum.
One of the better conferences trips that I’ve had in a while.
