14th IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management
19-23 August 2019 in Brugg/Windisch, Switzerland
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 year, the IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management is particularly interested in contributions on Data for Better Living looking at the perspectives of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Privacy.

CALL FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS
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 any of the following approaches are welcome: technical, legal, regulatory, socioeconomic, social or societal, political, ethical, anthropological, philosophical, historical, psychological, or media & communication studies perspectives. The interdisciplinary character of the work has long been 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. Submissions within the scope of the call are selected for presentation at the School. For accepted submissions, the full papers of up to 16 pages in length in Springer LNCS format are to be submitted 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.
CALL FOR TUTORIALS AND WORKSHOPS
The School also welcomes contributions in the form of tutorials and workshop proposals from a wide range of disciplines (e.g. computer science, economics, ethics, law, psychology, sociology, political and other social sciences, surveillance studies, media and communication studies, and others). 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.

(2) On acceptance of the abstract, authors should 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 (unreviewed) summer school
pre-proceedings that will be published online.
(3) After the summer school, authors will have the opportunity to submit their revised full papers (again in Springer LNCS format, max. 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. They will be considered for publication in the summer school proceedings by the official IFIP publisher (Springer). 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 through this volume.
All paper submissions must be made in PDF format, in the Springer LNCS template, and using the Easychair System:
