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.
