IFIP Summer School -- Call for Paper/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.





2016 will see a raft of advances in data protection regulation. Globally
there are questions raised about how to introduce and adopt data protection
and data privacy legislation appropriately. The European General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR) is likely to be adopted in spring 2016 and will
probably come into force two years later. The Regulation retains the
principles embedded in the current Data Protection Directive. It introduces
new measures and strengthens others. Accountability, Data Protection Impact
Assessment, Privacy by Design and by Default, the Right to be Forgotten, and
a much more potent sanction regime are a few of the new or reinforced
notions in the GDPR. These have the potential to improve privacy and data
protection, but also raise a number of challenges regarding scope,
feasibility, implementation and effects. These questions concern technical,
legal, social, economic, philosophical, psychological, and other dimensions.
Other forms of legislation may also change the regulatory scene dramatically
and have effects on privacy and identity. For instance, the 2015 Cyber
Security Directive and the “Privacy Shield”, that is replacing the Safe
Harbour Agreement, will also raise new questions.


Yet legislation is not the only driver. Technological advances such as the
use of open data, big data, and sensor development in the Internet of
Everything are rapidly changing who holds what data, and where and how that
data may be used. Business development is increasing in fields related to
surveillance, control of mass movement, security, safety, and identity
management. Cities, towns, communities, streets, house and modes of
transportation are all becoming smarter. Fields of organisational activity
are merging.

There are also many advances on hand that may help to achieve better and
safer infrastructures for people to communicate freely without being
observed either by commercial or by governmental bodies (user empowerment);
improve the balance between individuals and institutions (especially
concerning the privacy protection goals of transparency and participation);
and set up democratic processes in which effective oversight over the
consequences of new technologies can be exercised.


These questions, as well as many other current and general research issues
surrounding privacy and identity management, will all be addressed by the
2016 IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management, which takes a
holistic approach to society and technology and support interdisciplinary
exchange through keynote and plenary lectures, tutorials, workshops, and
research paper presentations.


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 international/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



Extended abstracts (2-4 pages)........................22 April 2016

Acceptance notification for presentation at school.....6 May 2016

Full papers for pre-proceedings.......................22 July 2016

First feedback review to the authors..................16 September 2016

Submission for Springer proceedings...................31 October 2016

Acceptance notification...............................25 November 2016

Camera-ready papers...................................16 December 2016 



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


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 (to be found at Summer School website).



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.
