InCommon CAMP and Advance CAMP (ACAMP)

CAMP and Advance CAMP:
Where the community meets

InCommon’s annual gathering of the international identity and access management community

What is CAMP?

What is CAMP? The acronym means Campus Architecture and Middleware Planning. CAMP has come to mean the series of track sessions that include case studies, organizations’ innovations in identity management, best practices, and other presentations that help move the community forward.

The CAMP program is developed by a community program committee based on community-submitted proposals. The event draws identity architects, developers, implementers, service provider operators, and other identity management professionals with any level of experience. You can see the most recent CAMP program (2020) on the wiki.

What is Advance CAMP?

Advance CAMP is an unconference, with participants developing the agenda at the beginning of the event. ACAMP then continues with as many as five breakout sessions per hour to discuss issues of interest to the international research and education identity and access management community. Each ACAMP session is documented by a group scribing process and those documents are available on the wiki.

When do CAMP and ACAMP take place?

Since 2014, CAMP and ACAMP have constituted the identity and access management track at the Internet2 Technology Exchange (TechEx), generally in the fall of the year. In 2020, due to the pandemic, CAMP and ACAMP were held online.
