The place to share your own ideas


In 2021, the University of Luxembourg at its Belval campus will welcome you to the 16th IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management. This years topic is “It’s complicated: Exploring the relationship between cybersecurity and privacy, and improving training and awareness” We will take a holistic approach to society and technology and support 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, or psychological perspectives are welcome. The interdisciplinary character of the work is fundamental to the School.


The research paper presentations and the workshops have a particular 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 submitted papers are reviewed and selected for presentation at the School. After the School, these papers are revised to benefit from the discussion that occurred at the School, and are then reviewed again for inclusion in the School’s proceedings which will be published by Springer.



About the Summer school


Are you a student preparing a master or a PhD thesis or a young researchers?

This summer school is made for you! The school is interactive in character: the aim is to encourage young academic and industry entrants to the privacy and identity management world to share their own ideas, build up a network, test presentation skills, 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.

Best Student Paper Award

Up to 3 papers might be selected for an award in the frame of a best paper award. Potential candidates are identified by the programme committee members during review. Among these candidates, the PC chairs will select a laureates based on draft paper and presentation.

The awards are made public during the evening event. 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.
