Call to participate in the 2015 IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management: Time for a revolution?

16th to 21st August 2015

School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh

*** Funding available for SICSA PhD students – see below ***

This year’s IFIP summer school at the School of Informatics in Edinburgh is hosting a exciting series of invited talks and workshops from prominent international researchers exploring privacy and identity topics from multi-discipline perspectives.

The programme also includes more than 25 papers from talented doctoral students providing an essential opportunity to survey cutting-edge research in privacy and identify management.

This call is for non-presenting participants to the Summer School who wish to benefit from a gathering of international expertise and to help us debate the question ‘Is it Time for a revolution?’ in Privacy and Identity management.

Invited speakers include:

Angela Sasse, University College London:
“There is no ‘privacy paradox’ – just technology that does not support users’ privacy preferences”

Gabriela Barrantes, Universidad de Costa Rica:
“Communicating privacy issues to the general population – hands-on education campaigns”

Ian Brown, Oxford Internet Institute:
“Something is rotten in the state of privacy – the need for a revolution!?”

Gerrit Hornung, Passau University:
“The European General Data Protection Framework – evolution, revolution, or disillusion?”

Anja Lehmann, IBM Research – Zurich:
“Cryptography for People”

Marc van Lieshout, TNO:
“Mirroring privacy and security – where the two meet and fall apart”

In partnership with SICSA we can offer to cover the registration fee of up to seven PhD students studying at SICSA institutions. This offer does not include travel and accommodation which should be provided by the student’s own school.

To be considered for one of these places please apply to by the 10th July.

Your application should state your institution, briefly outline your PhD topic and state your reasons for wanting to attend the Summer School.

We are required to favour applicants from a spread of SICSA institutions but otherwise if there are more than seven eligible applicants we will make awards by lottery. We have reserved a small number of rooms at conference rates, but some successful applicants may have to find alternative accommodation.
