Background and goals
We are inviting contributions to this Summer School 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 different European and national research projects. 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.
Vision of the 2020 School

Best Student Paper Award
Every year, at the IFIP Summer School, a paper is chosen for the Best Paper Student Award. The award is made at the School, and this award success made public. Papers written solely or primarily by students and presented by a student at the Summer School are eligible for this award. If the paper is co-authored with senior researchers, the authors have to state that the main work and contributions can be clearly attributed to the student author(s). The award will be selected based on the quality of the paper and the oral presentation.
