The interdisciplinary summer school on privacy provides an intensive one week academic post-graduate programme teaching privacy from a technical, legal and social perspective. The goal of the summer school is to provide students with a solid background in the theory of privacy construction, modelling and protection from these three different perspectives.


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.

The school is held in a location that encourages dialogue and social interactions between both the staff and the students, both during lectures and in the evening. Staff (i.e. lecturers) are encouraged to stay at the summer school for the whole length of the school. The summer school is foremost aimed at PhD students from computer science, law and social sciences.


Registration is required, and the registration fee will be determined soon. People expressing interest will be notified when the full registration page becomes available.
