Graduate Symposium

The IFIPTM 2017 Graduate Symposium will feature a highly interactive program that allows internationally renowned researchers and students at any stage of their graduate career to discuss the research, open issues, and state of the art in the field of Computational Trust and Trust Management.

Participation in the Graduate Symposium is independent of a submission and open to all interested students, researchers, and practitioners.

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.

Three extended abstracts will be discussed at the symposium and presented during the conference:

  • Information Trust by Tosan Atele-Williams (University of Ontario Institute of Technology)
  • Privacy and Trust In Cloud-based Marketplace for Data Resources by Vida Ahmadi Mehri (Blekinge Tekniska Högskola)
  • Psychological Evaluation of Human Choice Behavior in Socio-technical Systems: A Rational Process Model Approach by Tim Schürmann (TU Darmstadt)
