2022-01-31 09:00 - 17:00

Veranstaltung zur Verwendung des Eclipse Dataspace Connectors


Time Title Speaker What to expect
9:00 – 9:10 Welcome and Introduction Markus Spiekermann
Welcome to the conference.
9:10 – 10:00 Keynote Boris Otto
Why do we need dataspaces and what are the concepts behind them?

What is data sovereignty and how is it addressed through dataspaces?

How is the Eclipse Dataspace Connector enabling the creation of dataspaces?

10:00 – 11:00 Eclipse Dataspace Connector Concepts and Architecture Jim Marino
(EDC Lead Architect)
Overview of Architecture and Concepts
11:00 – 11:15 Coffee Break
11:15 – 12:00 Decentralized Identity for true Digital Sovereignty Stefan van der Wiele
It is hard to build a truly sovereign data sharing solution if you are depending on a central Identity Provider which is controlled by someone else. We will therefor explore the concepts of Decentralized Identity and discuss how they enable everyone to be self-sovereign.

What are Decentralized Identities (DIDs) and how are they being used in the Eclipse Dataspace Connector?

12:00 – 12:30 A peek into the future… Markus Spiekermann
Where is the Eclipse Dataspace Connector headed?


How can you contribute and what areas need contributions right now?
