IFIP Summer School 2011
After the success of the 2010 edition, this year IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing, Working Groups 9.2, 9.6/11.7 11.4, 11.6)  in collaboration with other FP7 EU projects will organise the International Summer School on the topic of Privacy and Identity Management for Emerging Internet Applications throughout a Person's Lifetime.

Internet applications, such as Web 2.0 applications and cloud computing, increasingly pose privacy dilemmas. When they communicate over the Internet, individuals leave trails of personal data which may be stored for many years to come. These developments raise substantial new challenges for personal privacy at the technical, social, ethical, regulatory, and legal levels:

- How can privacy be protected in emerging Internet applications such as collaborative scenarios and virtual communities?
- What frameworks and tools could be used to gain, regain and maintain informational self-determination and lifelong privacy?

The Summer School takes a holistic approach to technology and support interdisciplinary exchange. In particular, participants' contributions that combine technical, legal, regulatory, socio-economic, ethical, philosophical, or psychological perspectives are welcome.
to be held at the University of Trento, Italy, on 5-9 September 2011 in cooperation with the EU funded projects: PrimeLife, ABC4Trust, Endorse, NESSOS, TAS3, the Norwegian PETweb II and e-Me, and Swedish U-PrIM (in cooperation with HumanIT) projects
