The 9th international IFIP summer school on privacy and identity management for the future internet in the age of globalisation took place on September 7-12, 2014 in Patras, Greece.

This year's summer school was hosted by ABC4Trust consortium partner CTI - Computer Technology Institute and Press "Diophantus" located near the University of Patras.

This annual event is organised by the IFIP working groups 9.2, 9.5, 9.6/11.7, 11.4, 11.6 and special interest group 9.2.2. ABC4Trust co-organizes the joint effort of several research projects to keep the IFIP summer school series up. For the event in 2014 summer school was hosted by our Greek ABC4Trust partner CTI with Yannis Stamatiou as organizing committee chair. Further ABC4Trust involvement consisted of Marit Hansen (ULD) as general chair and Jan Camenisch (IBM) as a program committee co-chair.

The IFIP summer school 2014 was interactive in character, and composed of keynote lectures and workshops with master/PhD student presentations. The principle is to bring together junior and senior researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines to discuss important questions concerning privacy and identity management and related issues in a global environment. To this end, contributions from students at the stage of preparing either a master’s or a PhD thesis are especially encouraged.

ABC4Trust was represented by two keynote speakers and an afternoon workshop, providing three parallel sessions. Furthermore, the project was addressed in several student papers.

Participants of the IFIP Summer School 2014 can view all slides of the ABC4Trust sessions here.
