CITP is co-sponsoring the first interdisciplinary summer school on privacy in Nijmegan, the Netherlands, July 10-15, 2016. This is a intensive one-week academic post-graduate program that teaches privacy from technical, legal and social perspectives. The goal of the summer school is to provide students with a solid background in the theory of privacy construction, modeling and protection from these three different perspectives. It also aims to help establish a first international network with peers and senior academics across these disciplines.

This year’s summer school will be dedicated to the topic of Addressing Privacy in Service architectures and the Sharing economy. The shift from shrink wrapped software to service oriented architectures as the building blocks of our digital infrastructure brings about changes in information flows, rights and experiences of users, and accountability of services. The sharing economy has risen to prominence with service architectures and has lead to a further collapse of concepts of consumer, producer, labor and citizenship. Combined, the sharing economy and service architectures serve to make it possible to leverage information flows to control the circulation of people and “things.” These developments have a great impact on the type of privacy problems that arise and the appropriate technical, legal and social means to address these problems.

This program is aimed at 1st or 2nd year PhD students from law, social sciences and computer science.
