Terrell and I submitted a poster to JCDL a few months back, and we’re happy to report it was accepted. JCDL is being held this June 11-15, right in our hometown of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. If anyone who stumbles across this blog is planning on attending JCDL, you’ve got to drop us a line so we can go grab food and beer (or at least share some advice about the area). For a small town, Chapel Hill offers a ton of great eateries, music venues (looking at the Cat’s Cradle calendar, I see that Davendra Banhart is already booked for a June 12th show), and cultural attractions.
Our poster is entitled “ClaimID: A System for Personal Identity Management”, and the accompanying paper can be downloaded here. For those familiar with claimID, there’s not really anything new in the paper; we’ll be certain to post the poster here once it’s completed. Here’s the abstract.
In this poster, the authors describe a system, claimID, that enables individuals to create representation of their online identity. Realizing that online identity, especially personal identity as represented in search, is difficult to collect and verify, the authors propose a system that enables individuals to collect and self-classify the information that is about them online.
We’re looking forward to an interesting conference, hoping to talk to lots of smart folks about claimID, and generally praying it won’t be too hot. See you there!
