During the INFuture2015 confernce two workshops are organised. They are intended for the conference participants (who do not have to register for the workshop) and those who do not participate at the conference but are interested for the workshops' topics (they have to register for the workshop - see below).


Workshop 1 - Thursday 12 November 2015, 16-18h, Hotel Westin, 17th floor

How to maintain authenticity and integrity of electronic information without utilizing electronic certificates?

Hans Almgren and Mats Stengård, Enigio Time AB, Sweden

The workshop will be led by Hans Almgren, co-founder of Enigio Time AB, inventor within solutions for long term preservation of authenticity of digital information. Hans has a long background within technology solutions for the E-archive business in Sweden.

How to manage integrity and authenticity are key areas for all kinds of long term preservation of electronic information. Today, many e-archive solutions are built to support the Records Continuum Model, i.e. a record is never definite, it can continuously be provided with more information, such as metadata.

This shift provides further demands on securing integrity and authenticity within the e-archiving systems. One way to address that is by using solutions for qualified electronic time stamps in order to securely track every event of a record.

Workshop Outline
Qualified electronic timestamps are provided either by using technology based on electronic certificates or by using one-way hash functions. The time span of electronic certificates is limited and therefore not suitable for long term applications, thus this workshop will focus on solutions using one-way hash functions.

Advanced one-way hash functions are perfect basis for proving the existence of electronic information. But the problem is how to secure that the proof of existence hasn’t been tampered with. The provider of the qualified trusted timestamp has to be able to prove that the proof of existence (i.e. the hash code) is “written in stone”.

This workshop will enlighten participants about different technologies for providing a non manipulated publication channel for the proof of existence and thereafter elaborate on how this can be used also for streaming media (such as: continuous log file tracking, video and voice recording).

Part 1: How to utilize Block Chain Technology for providing proof of existence
• How does it work?
• Bitcoin and alternatives
• Pros and cons

Part 2: How to secure authenticity for streaming media by utilizing timeloop
• How to secure authenticity of streaming media?
• How does it work?
• Use cases

Who Should Attend?
Anyone who has concerns on how to secure long term authenticity and integrity of data. This workshop will explain some possibilities and solutions in this area of research.


Workshop 2 - Friday 13 November 2015, 10-12h, Hotel Westin, 17th floor

Initial maturity model for information governance arrangements in organizations

Diogo Proenca, Ricardo Vieira, Jose Borbinha, Clive Billenness, Project E-ARK

The workshop will be led by Clive Billenness, Project Manager and Lead on Dissemination activities within E-ARK, who, as an Information Systems Auditor for the United Kingdom Government, is experienced in the creation and the implementation of Maturity Models within areas of Information Governance.

The workshop is based on the research work undertaken in the EC Project E-ARK [620998] as published in public Project Deliverable D7.2, submitted to the EC on 1 August 2015.

Workshop outline
The purpose of the workshop is to introduce delegates to the background and principles of the Maturity Model which measures the effectiveness of the Information Governance Arrangements within an organisation - which are essential to support the archiving of electronic data. This will be followed by a detailed inspection of the evaluation model and an examination of the questions. 

Delegates will be invited to take a copy of the model back to their own organisation and complete it to assess their own current maturity level in a number of areas and so develop an action plan to address any shortcomings identified.

Delegates will also be invited to submit their responses anonymously to a central database, thereby contributing to a facility for organisations to benchmark themselves again comparable bodies and measure their progress.

Who Should Attend?
The workshop is intended to be highly interactive and is intended for all involved in the archiving of electronic data or preparing for such activities.
