After the success of the last IFIP Summer School “Privacy and Identity Management for emerging Internet Applications throughout a Person’s Lifetime” in September 2011, ABC4Trust is again collaborating with other projects and several IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing) working groups to arrange a Summer School in 2013. This 8th International Summer School, organised jointly by the IFIP Working Groups 9.2, 9.5, 9.6/11.7, 11.4, 11.6 and projects such as ABC4Trust, A4Cloud, PRISMS, DigiDeas and FutureID, will focus on “Privacy and Identity Management for Emerging Services and Technologies”. It will be held in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, from June 17 to 21, 2013. The local organisers are PI.lab and Radboud University Nijmegen.
The aim of the Summer School is to encourage young academic and industry entrants to the privacy and identity management world to share their own ideas, build up a collegial relationship with others, gain experience in making presentations, and potentially publish a paper through the resulting book proceedings. It takes a holistic approach to society and technology and supports interdisciplinary exchange in the keynote lectures, tutorials and workshops. In particular, participants' contributions that combine technical, legal, regulatory, socio-economic, social or societal, ethical, anthropological, philosophical, or psychological perspectives are welcome. The school is interactive in character, and is composed of a combination of keynote lectures and workshops with PhD student presentations. Contributions are selected based on an extended abstract review by a Summer School Programme Committee.
