Call For Papers

*18th IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management 2023*
08.-11.08.2023, Oslo Norway

Call for Papers:
*Sharing (in) a Digital World*

Our future is shared. The Internet and the web, (personal) data,
resources, climate effects, music, genetic information, trading routes,
celestial bodies, holiday homes, rides: we have built a globalized world
on sharing, and sharing will be the great protagonist of our future.
However, sharing is mostly realized through centralized platforms,
controlled by dominant industry players, instead of decentralized
architectures and communities. Recently, European policymakers have
started to provide legal frameworks for sharing, including concepts such
as data intermediaries and data sharing obligations.

Experts can work to make sharing secure, safe, and just, to protect the
privacy and other rights of those who want to share, and of those who
cannot or do not want to. Starting today, the experts of tomorrow can
research ways to enable the fair distribution of the benefits – and
side-effects – of sharing in a globalized world. How can sharing be
realized using today's technology and building blocks, but with a
sustainable and inclusive approach for the shared IT worlds and
metaverses of the future? On a structural level, who determines who is –
purposefully or carelessly – included in and excluded from accessing,
sharing, or deciding, and which narratives are used to justify these
positions? How can we address the sharing paradox, i.e. that everyone
wants to see what others shared, but people are reluctant to sharing
their own information? Which of the technical and organisational
approaches to sharing are best suited to protect the rights and freedoms
of natural persons?

These questions and issues in the context of privacy and identity
management are still nascent. The summer school aims to create a
platform for spreading awareness and facilitating interactions and
knowledge exchanges around these issues.

The 18th IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management takes
a holistic approach to society and technology. We support
interdisciplinary research exchange and foster discussions through
keynote lectures, tutorials and workshops. Participants will
benefit from presenting their research and receiving meaningful
feedback. The summer school culminates in the publication of selected
papers among those submitted by the participants, in the form of an
edited volume published by Springer.

We welcome contributions combining any of the following perspectives:
sociological, legal, technical, ethical,
political, surveillance, intersectional, anthropological, economic,
historical, media & communication, regulatory, philosophical, critical,
disabilites, and psychological studies in the areas around privacy, data
protection, and identity management.

The IFIP Summer School encourages not only interdisciplinarity but also
broader diversity. It particularly welcomes submissions on how to foster
gender and cultural balance in privacy and identity research and policy,
and notably tutorials and workshops about how to raise awareness in
these matters.

_Paper Submission and Review Process_

The research paper presentations focus on involving students, and on
encouraging the publication of high-quality, thorough research papers by
students and young researchers. To this end, the school will have the
following process for submissions:

- Submit an extended abstract of at least 2 and at most 4 pages in
Springer LNCS style. From these submissions, the PC chairs select papers
within the scope of this call for presentation at the summer school.
- A full length submission (up to 16 pages), also in Springer LNCS
format, is required to be submitted before the summer school by
applicants whose abstract has been accepted. The full-length paper will
be published in the pre-proceedings.
- At the summer school each author will give a presentation followed by
a discussion.
- After the summer school, authors are invited to submit to the
proceedings (again 16 pages LNCS). It is expected that they take into
account the comments and discussions from the summer school.
- There will be a review of these submissions by the Programme
Committee. Based on these reviews, papers might be accepted,
conditionally accepted, or rejected.
- Accepted and (after satisfactory revision) conditionally accepted
papers will be included in the summer school’s proceedings, which will
be published by Springer.

Submissions need to be in English language, and must be submitted
electronically using the following Easychair link:

_Proposals for Workshops and Tutorials_

A workshop is an interactive session that is scheduled for one or two
hours and focusses on involving students in discussion. In it,
participants jointly work on a topic or project that is related to the
theme of the summer school. Workshop actitivies are summarized in short
papers that recapitulate the outcome and the kinds of discussion raised
in the summer school, for inclusion in the proceedings. Proposals for
workshops should contain a 2-page statement presenting the topic and
summarising the planned activity and the expected contributions from the
audience members, e.g. responding to a questionnaire or conducting a
small experiment. Proposers should indicate whether any special
equipment is needed for the workshop, such as audio-visual systems or
computational equipment and support.

Tutorials are one or two hour long presentations. They should deal with
topics that are of interest for the interdisciplinary audience in the
summer school. Tutorials should provide knowledge on theoretical,
empirical, methodological, practical or other aspects relevant for the
summer school. Proposals for tutorials should contain a 2-page
summary and state the level and background required for audience members
to follow the tutorial.

Workshop and tutorial proposals need to be in English language, and must
be submitted electronically using the following Easychair link:

_Why should I submit?_

Accepted papers will receive thorough discussions during the School and
provide students with an opportunity to be published in the IFIP AICT
series by Springer. Students who present a paper can receive a course
certificate awarding 3 ECTS points at the PhD level. Students whose
papers were accepted as full papers for the proceedings, can receive a
course certificate awarding 6 ECTS points at the PhD level. The
certificate can state the topic of the paper so as to demonstrate its
relationship (or otherwise) to the student’s master or PhD thesis. We
encourage submissions from students from emerging economies: it is
possible to apply for support from the IFIP Digital Equity Fund to ease
student travel.
