We invite you to attend PET-CON 2018.1 -- the eighth 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 took place at University of Hamburg, University of Regensburg, TU Dresden, TU Darmstadt, RWTH Aachen, Goethe University Frankfurt and Hamburg University.
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.
There is no filtering of contributions. However, there is a voluntary submission process with peer review. Submissions should have a length of up to eight pages and be formatted using one of the common paper templates (e.g., llncs.cls). You can also attend the convention without giving a talk at all.
