13th IFIP Summer School 2018 on Privacy and Identity Management
- Fairness, Accountability and Transparency in the Age of Big Data - Vienna, Austria, 20-24 August 2018


Background and goals

We are inviting contributions to this IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management from students who are at the stage of preparing a master or a PhD thesis as well as young researchers and practitioners. The school is interactive in character, and is composed of plenary lectures and workshops based around Master/PhD students' 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.
This Summer School is a joint effort between the IFIP Working Groups 9.2, 9.6/11.7, 11.6, and Special Interest Group 9.2.2,  and of different projects, including the German Privacy Forum (Forum Privatheit) and the EU H2020 project CREDENTIAL. The 2018 IFIP Summer School will bring together junior and senior researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines to discuss important questions concerning privacy and identity management and related issues in a global environment subject to change. This Summer School is not a "taught course": it does enable, however, students to gain credit points for presenting and attending, and their paper to be considered as a candidate for a Best Paper award.

Basic elements

The Summer School takes a holistic approach to society and technology and supports interdisciplinary exchange through keynote and plenary lectures, tutorials, workshops, and research paper presentations. In particular, participants' contributions that combine technical, legal, regulatory, socio-economic, social or societal, political, ethical, anthropological, philosophical, historical, or psychological perspectives are welcome. The interdisciplinary character of the work is fundamental to the School.
The research paper presentations and the workshops focus on involving students, and on encouraging the publication of high-quality, thorough, research papers by students/young researchers. To this end, the School has a three-phase review process for submitted papers. In the first phase, submissions are short abstracts as a minimum (full papers are possible). Submissions within the scope of the call are selected for presentation at the School. For accepted submissions the full papers are to be submitted latest before the Summer School takes place and they appear in the (unreviewed) pre-proceedings. In a second review phase, the full papers are reviewed soon after the Summer School. The students are invited to resubmit their full papers, after they have revised them based on two sets of feedback: the discussions that took place at the Summer School, as well as a formal written review by programme committee members. In the third review phase, after the full papers are resubmitted, they are reviewed again for inclusion in the School's proceedings which will be published by Springer.
Submissions by senior researchers and participants in European, national, or regional/community research projects are also very welcome, and are generally published in a separate section of the book volume.

Submitting papers / abstracts

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 are to 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 Summer School pre-proceedings.
After the Summer School, authors will have the opportunity to revise and re-submit their full papers (again in Springer LNCS format, with a maximum of 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. These revised papers will be considered for publication in the Summer School proceedings published by Springer, the official IFIP publisher. 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 in this volume.

Call for Tutorials and Workshops

The School also seeks contributions in the form of tutorials and workshop proposals from all disciplines (e.g. computer science, informatics, economics, ethics, law, psychology, sociology, history, political and other social sciences, surveillance studies, business and public management). The timelines for submission of these tutorials and workshops are the same as those of the student papers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: concepts, technologies and applications, design, enforcement mechanisms, effects, attitudes, and user practices.
Tutorials are expected to last one or two hours. Proposals should contain a short summary and state the level and background required for attendees to follow the tutorial.
Workshops are expected to last one or two hours and must generate short papers that recapitulate the outcome and the kinds of discussions raised in the School, for inclusion in the post-proceedings. Proposals should contain a short statement summarising the topic(s) to be discussed 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 audiovisual systems or computational equipment and support.
