Pods/Groups coming from other countries together Japanese organizes by framing it as a IdM specialist study trip to silicon valley What could make this more compelling visiting companies on Friday/Monday Survey - leading questions

Explaining better what happens and what goes on at IIW.
- The topic is so broad some people "should be here" but don't know
- Who is at IIW - High level thinkers who are visionary.
- Why are they here? They Love the unconference format and the Dynamic it brings.
- Create a WordCloud from the Book of Proceedings.
As topics come in can we curate them?
- MindMap Past and current events
- Who people are like "speakers" presented
- Use a Panel Picker Like tool to input ideas for sessions
Ideas to broaden participation
- Fellowship Program from sponsors for attendees.
- European Workshop for Trust and Identity (Austria/Europe)
- Identity North (Canada)
Social Event around IIW Pre/Post
- Women's Spa Day? (Kaliya has thought of this on the weekend before or after)
Consider Pre-event with "speakers"
