Call For Papers

IFIP Summer School -- Call for Papers/Extended Abstracts

11th IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management
Karlstad, Sweden, 21-26 August 2016

Organised by IFIP Working Groups 9.2, 9.6/11.7, 11.6 in co-operation with the Computer Science Department at Karlstad University and the EU H2020 ITN Project, Privacy & Us.

We are inviting contributions to this summer school from students who are at the stage of preparing either a master’s or a PhD thesis. The school is interactive in character, and is composed of plenary lectures and workshops with master’s/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, build up a collegial relationship with others, gain experience in making presentations, and potentially publish a paper through the resulting Springer proceedings. Submissions by senior researchers and participants in European, national, or regional/community research projects are also very welcome.

The school covers all aspects of privacy and identity and seeks for contributions from a broad range of disciplines (e.g., computer science, informatics, economics, ethics, law, psychology, sociology, political and other social sciences, surveillance studies, business and public management). Research papers are expected to contribute towards application scenarios, use cases, and good practices; research with an empirical focus; and interdisciplinary investigations.

Important Dates

Submission format & review process

The abstract submissions should contain a concise problem statement, an outline, and clear messages (they should not be about work “to be done”). On acceptance of the abstract, authors should submit their full papers of up to 16 pages in length in Springer LNCS format. These versions of the papers will be made available to all participants in the (unreviewed) summer school pre-proceedings.

After the summer school, authors will have the opportunity to submit their revised full papers (again in Springer LNCS format, max. 16 pages). These versions should address the questions and discussions raised on the paper during the summer school as well as in the detailed reviews provided by the Programme Committee members. They will be considered for publication in the summer school proceedings by the official IFIP publisher (Springer). The papers to be included in the final proceedings will again be reviewed and finally selected by the summer school Programme Committee. Students are expected to try to publish their work through this volume.

All paper submissions must be made in PDF format, in the Springer template, and using the Easychair system.

Credit Points

Students who actively participate, in particular those who present a paper, can receive a course certificate which awards 3 ECTS points at the PhD level. Student attendees who do not present a paper will receive a course certificate, which awards 1.5 ECTS points at the PhD level. The certificate can state the topic of the paper contribution so as to demonstrate its relationship (or otherwise) to the student’s master’s or PhD thesis.
