The LSDMA Technical Forum on Authentication and Authorisation Infrastructures (AAI) will seek to discuss in detail the current approaches and best practices on various aspects of AAI, including federated identity management, distributed authorisation and access control and delegation. Several projects, including LSDMA, INDIGO-DataCloud, AARC and EUDAT, are expected to share their experience in the field. The event is hosted by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and will be co-located with LSDMA symposium on Big Data. Please refer to the symposium page for more details on the symposium.

How to get there
By plane: There are two airports not too far from Karlsruhe: Frankfurt and Stuttgart
  • Frankfurt Main, which is about 1 hour by train to Karlsruhe. The train stations are in the Airport in the Terminal 1 building. Please go to "long-distance trains" platform 5. Terminals are connected by the 'free of charge' SkyLIne Train or busses.
  • Stuttgart is about 1.6h from Karlsruhe.
Details for public transport in Karlsruhe: The closest tram stop is "Karlsruhe, Durlacher Tor / KIT-Campus Süd". Trams go every 2-5 minutes from Karlsruhe Main Station. Trams you can take are:
  • 1
  • 2
  • S-4
  • S-41
(Please note the difference between Trams without S and Trains with S, because e.g. Tram 4 and S-2 will take you to the wrong place!) If your train ticket from the airport to Karlsruhe says "Karlsruhe + City", the public transport is included on the way from the airport and back. The app for public transport is Öffi:
