Join InCommon

It’s Better than a Meeting.
It’s CAMP.

When managers and practitioners want to learn about — and explore — issues related to identity and access management, they turn to CAMP.

In fact, InCommon offers three flavors of CAMP (Community Architecture and Middleware Planning)


BaseCAMP is designed for those new to the InCommon Federation, new to identity management, or new to the InCommon Trusted Access Platform identity and access management software suite.

BaseCAMP 2019 is in the books, but you can check out the schedule and resources (including many slide decks) on the wiki. Planning for the 2020 BaseCAMP is underway, to be held in June.


CAMP meetings are all about sharing case studies of what’s working and learning about what’s next. Designed for those in production with some flavor of our platform, topics vary and are developed by a community-driven program committee. CAMP takes place at the Internet2 Technology Exchange.

Advance CAMP

Advance CAMP is where we identify and work on the long range and global challenges. Attendees explore emerging identity-related trends as well as discuss development topics associated with broader community coordination. Starting in 2009, Advance CAMPs have served as identity summits, developing common approaches to identity challenges and open source software development. Advance CAMP takes place at the Internet2 Technology Exchange.

The CAMP series focuses on issues relating to identity and access management. The meetings help to promote effective campus identity practices, and to educate higher education institutions about how to participate in a national and growing international trust infrastucture.
