Call for Graduate Symposium

The 2017 IFIPTM Graduate Symposium on Trust and Trust Management carries on a series of successful Summer Schools in Denmark, India and Spain and the Graduate Symposiums in Singapore and Germany. The aim of the 2017 two day Symposium is to provide graduate students at any stages of their graduate career a view of the research, open issues, and state of the art in the field of Computational Trust and Trust Management. Topics of interest also include security, privacy, economic, and psychological aspects of trust as well as all topics mentioned in the Call for Papers. The Symposium features lectures by experts in the field, exploring the theory, philosophy and practice of Trust and Trust Management and its application to society and science. There will be ample opportunity to network with presenters and other students. Participants will work on small projects together to apply skills and knowledge and learn from each other. A special conference session is planned for selected students to present their work in the main IFIPTM conference, followed by a poster session. Accepted abstracts will appear in the proceedings of the IFIPTM conference.

We are happy to announce that the symposium will be accessible at a heavily discounted price of 500 SEK when registering to the main conference at the student registration price of 3000 SEK. A preliminary program of both the symposium and the conference can be found here.
