10th Privacy Enhancing Techniques Convention (PET-CON 2019)
We invite you to attend PET-CON 2019 — the tenth convention in Germany in the area of Privacy Enhancing Techniques. PET-CON brings together students (B.Sc., M.Sc., PhD), junior researchers, privacy activists and other interested people to discuss work in progress. PET-CON is organized by the PET interest group of the German Computer Science Society (GI). Previous PET-CONs have been organized at TU Berlin, University of Hamburg, University of Regensburg, TU Dresden, TU Darmstadt, RWTH Aachen, and Goethe University Frankfurt.
PET-CON is a very informal gathering. The workshop consists of short contributed talks (10-15 minutes) followed by extensive feedback and discussions (up to 45 minutes). For instance, students can present planned, ongoing, and recently finished theses in order to receive feedback. We also accept presentations of papers that have already been published elsewhere. You can also attend the convention without giving a talk at all.
