# Background of the summerschool

The interdisciplinary summerschool on privacy (ISP) provides an
intensive one week academic post-graduate programme teaching privacy
from a technical, legal and social perspective. The goal of the
summerschool is to provide students with a solid background in the
theory of privacy construction, modelling and protection from these
three different perspectives. It also aims to help them to establish a
first international network with peers and senior academics across these
disparate disciplines.

Participants of the summerschool are awarded two ECTS (study credits)
and receive a certificate of attendance issued by the Radboud University
attesting this.

# Theme: AI, Algorithms & Privacy

The theme "AI, Algorithms & Privacy" addresses the privacy issues that
arise from the use of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning
algorithms, and studies how to address these issues. Topics within this
theme are
e.g. transparency, discrimination, and adversarial learning.

# Format

The summer school is interdisciplinary, involving the following
disciplines: computer science, law and social sciences / media and
communication studies. The school lasts one week, with nine scheduled
lectures (five morning
lectures and four afternoon lectures) of two hours each. These nine
lectures are equally distributed over the three disciplines, with
top-notch lectures from each of the disciplines. The lectures will lay
the grounds for an interdisciplinary conversation among students and
lecturers coming from a variety of backgrounds.

The remaining time is used for hands on working group sessions to study
practical cases. The cases will be offered by businesses, governments,
government related institutions (like DPAs) and civil society/NGOs.
Groups of six students, ideally two from each discipline, are formed to
tackle the cases and report back on their results in a plenary session.

The school is held in a location that encourages dialogue and social
interactions between both the staff and the students, both during
lectures and in the evening. Staff (i.e. lecturers) are encouraged to
stay at the summer school for the whole length of the school. The summer
school is foremost aimed at PhD students from computer science, law and
social sciences.
