Current trends such as Web 2.0, mobile applications, cloud computing,
big data analysis and sensor technologies mean processing more and
more personal information. In this situation, the privacy of
individuals is at stake. In 2012, several legislative initiatives that
may foster better privacy protection were proposed, among others the
US Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights, Australia's Privacy Amendment
(Enhancing Privacy Protection) Bill and the European Data Protection
Regulation that promotes "data protection by design" as well as "data
protection by default". In addition, the European Commission has
proclaimed 2013 Year of the Citizens.
Yet how can the individuals' privacy rights be effectively achieved
considering the rapid changes and massive challenges stemming from
emerging information and communication technologies and services? What
frameworks and tools do we need to gain, regain and maintain
informational self-determination and lifelong privacy?
These questions will be addressed by the IFIP Summer School 2013 on
Privacy and Identity Management for Emerging Services and
Technologies. The Summer School organisation will be a joint effort of
IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing, Working
Groups 9.2, 9.5, 9.6/11.7, 11.4, 11.6) and several European and
national projects. The IFIP Summer School 2013 will bring together
junior and senior researchers and practitioners from multiple
disciplines to discuss important questions concerning privacy and
identity management and related issues.
We are especially inviting contributions from students who are at the
stage of preparing either a master's or a doctoral thesis. The school
is interactive in character, and is composed of keynote lectures and
workshops with master/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
book proceedings. 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 so as to demonstrate its relation or
non-relation to the student's master's/PhD thesis.
Basic elements of the Summer School
The Summer School takes a holistic approach to society and technology
and supports interdisciplinary exchange in the keynote lectures,
tutorials and workshops. In particular, participants' contributions
that combine technical, legal, regulatory, socio-economic, social or
societal, ethical, anthropological, philosophical, or psychological
perspectives are welcome. The interdisciplinary character of the work
is fundamental to the school.
Confirmed keynote speakers at this moment are Jan Camenisch (IBM Zuerich),
Simone Fischer-Huebner (Karlstad University), Yannis Stamitiou (University of Patras),
Rodica Tirtea (ENISA), Eleni Kosta (TILT), Sianni Pearson (HP Labs), Alessandro Acquisti (CMU),
Bart Jacobs (RU Nijmegen) and Luciano Floridi (University of Hertfordshire).
Workshops held during the Summer School week are targeted at
optimising student involvement. They are aimed at giving the most
effective feedback possible to students on their work. They are not
intended for submissions by established researchers or industrialists.
Related European, national, or regional/community research projects as
well as other senior researchers are also very welcome to present
papers or to organise workshops as part of the Summer School.
An award for the best student paper submitted and presented will be
organised, which will be handed out during the Summer School week. The
paper should be written by the master/PhD student herself or
himself. Any contribution to the paper by other researchers should be
made clear.
We welcome: research papers from all disciplines (e.g., computer
science, economics, law, psychology, sociology and other social
sciences); contributions on application scenarios, use cases, and good
practices; research with an empirical focus; and interdisciplinary
work. Contributions will be selected by the Summer School Programme
Committee based on an extended abstract review. See Important dates
and details (below) for the length of the abstract.
The contributions should contain a concise problem statement, an
outline, and clear messages (they should not be about work "to be
done"). 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 will be extended to 8 pages in length (and will
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. Students are expected to try to publish their
work through this volume.

- privacy and identity management (services, technologies,
infrastructures, usability aspects, legal and socio-economic aspects),
- privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs),
