Call For Papers

Sixth International Summer School
organised jointly by the EU FP7 project PrimeLife
and the IFIP Working Groups 9.2, 9.6/11.7 11.4, 11.6

Privacy and Identity Management for Life (PrimeLife/IFIP Summer School 2010)
to be held in Helsingborg, Sweden, 2nd - 6th August 2010
in cooperation with the EU FP7 project ETICA

We are especially inviting contributions from students who are at the stage of preparing either masters' or doctoral theses qualifications. The school is interactive in character, and is composed of keynote lectures and seminars, tutorials and workshops with PhD student presentations. The principle is to encourage young academic and industry entrants to the privacy and identity management world to share their own ideas and to build up a collegial relationship with others. Students that actively participate, in particular those who present a paper, can receive a course certificate which awards 3 ECTS at the PhD level. The certificate can certify the topic of the contributed paper to demonstrate its relation or non-relation to the student's masters'/PhD thesis.

Related European, national, or regional/community research projects are also very welcome to present papers or to organise workshops as part of the Summer School.

A special one-day stream within the Summer School, to which abstracts/papers can be submitted directly, will be organised by the EU FP7 project ETICA on privacy and related ethical issues that arise from emerging information and communication technologies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Privacy and identity management (technologies, infrastructures, usability aspects, legal and social-economic aspects), privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs), Multilateral Security, anonymity and pseudonymity, transparency-enhancing tools, privacy and trust policies, privacy-aware web service composition, semantic web security and privacy, privacy and identity management in cloud computing, privacy metrics, trust management and reputation systems, assurance evaluation and control, privacy in complex emerging real-life scenarios including the use of privacy-enhancing mechanisms in various application areas that are often lifelong in character (such as eLearning, eHealth, eGovernment), lifelong privacy challenges and sustainable privacy and identity management, privacy issues relating to social networks, social network analysis, profiling, tracking technologies, biometrics, surveillance, data retention, availability and other legal-regulatory aspects, impact on social exclusion/digital divide/cultural aspects, privacy and identity management related open source and standardisation initiatives.

We welcome: research papers from all disciplines (e.g., computer science, economics, law, psychology, sociology); inter-disciplinary work; and also contributions on application scenarios, use cases, and good practices.

Contributions will be selected based on an extended abstract review by the Summer School Programme Committee. Accepted short versions of papers will be made available to all participants in the Summer School Pre-Proceedings. After the Summer School, authors will have the opportunity to submit their final full papers (which address questions and aspects raised during the Summer School) for publication in the Summer School Proceedings published by the official IFIP publisher (Springer). The papers to be included in the Final Proceedings will again be reviewed and selected by the Summer School Programme Committee.

Helsingborg is located at the coast in Southern Sweden very close to Denmark and easily reachable via Copenhagen, Malmö or Gothenburg airport.

The submission address for extended abstracts (2-4 pages in length) will be accessible via the Summer School Website soon.
