Privacy summerschool ISP 2016 registration is still open

13 juni 2016

The interdisciplinary summerschool on privacy 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.

We invite doctoral researchers working on privacy, data protection, security, surveillance and ethics to participate in the first Interdisciplinary Summer school on Privacy (ISP 2016) to be held from July 10-15, 2016 in Berg en Dal (The Netherlands), close to Radboud University (Nijmegen).

The school lasts one week, with nine scheduled lectures (five morning lectures and four afternoon lectures) of two and a half hours each. The late afternoon / early evening is used for hands on working group sessions to study practical cases.
