Registration is now open for a free two-day Australian Access Federation Shibboleth Workshop, hosted by CSIRO in Canberra, Australia from 21-22 April 2008. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis.

The workshop is aimed at providing background and necessary skills for Australian organizations to contribute their projects to the AAF. It covers technical information and guidance for participants to join the Shibboleth-based MAMS Testbed Federation.

  • Discussions on issues pertinent to AAF from perspective of Identity Provider and Service Provider
The intended audience, therefore, are technical architects and developers at higher education and research institutions.

The workshop is Shibboleth-only component of AAF with the second day focused on discussion relevant to different approaches applicable for minigrant problem-domains and other related issues.

The agenda covers:

  • Introduction to the Australian Access Federation (what it is, what are the benefits, how can you join)
  • Introduction to Shibboleth federations (what it is, what it can do for you)
