HCSIT Summit Themes

HCSIT 2007 will bring together people from industry, research, public employment, initial and higher education to present and discuss their work in the context of urgent social challenges to ensure Employability and Lifelong Learning in the Knowledge Society.

Healthcare and Human Resources Tracks

A special healthcare track is transversal to the four days of the events:
  • 16 October focuses on digital identity and privacy. It will cover issues concerning both patients and practitioners.
  • 17 October focuses on human resource
  • issues, such as competency models for healthcare professionals
  • 18-19 October focuses on the continuing professional development of healthcare professionals and particularly on the contribution of ePortfolios to reflective practice and validation of competencies
More details on the healthcare track's leaflet and the human resources' track leaflet.

DIP 2007, 16-17 October

Digital identity and Privacy:

  • Legal and regulatory aspects of identity, privacy, confidentiality: policy and regulation enforcement

  • Privacy and confidentiality management within an organisation: privacy and anonymity, pseudonymity, and unlinkability in Web transactions

  • Intellectual property rights management (IPR): ownership of personnel data; balance between organisational and individual ownership; sharing personal attributes with employers; annual review

  • Privacy enhanced technology in education and employment: access control to personal data – private, protected, public

  • Identity management by an organisation and across sectors: federation of services, e.g. in education and employment, public and private, government and business; risks and benefits

  • Identity management by individuals: multiple identities management, federation of identities

  • Trust  and authentication: personally identifiable information identification and authentication, of individuals and organisations; data sources, assessment methodology for identity attributes; modelling in online transactions; certification and accreditation

  • Exploitation of digital identities and profiles, e.g. user profiling, data mining, linking data and records, intelligence

  • Education of stakeholders, from kindergarten to retirement, from parents to employers, etc.

  • Social networks and software, data sharing, including peer-to-peer, collective intelligence

  • Integrity of personal data, information resilience and survivability

  • Self-auditing and privacy enhancing tools: metrics; identification of sensitive fields and data; risk/vulnerability assessment; data sanitizing and privacy enhancing protection against data injection; unwanted data mining and inference attacks; making risk management visible to users; usability of current IDM and tools.

  • Interoperability and system architecture, standards, conformance testing


This workshop aims to bring together the main stakeholders to discuss and reach a common understanding of the most critical issues that need to be resolved in the world of employment, and the potential solutions that semantics could provide. In particular, we seek contributions (presentations and demonstrations) that address but are not limited to:
