EINS Summer School in Internet Science: Oxford, 13-17 August 2012
The first Network of Excellence Internet Science Summer School will take place in Oxford from 13-17 August 2012. The theme of the summer school is "Internet Privacy and Identity, Trust and Reputation Mechanisms" with sub-themes addressing online identity and ACTA/SOPA/CISPA.
The principal aim of the programme is to promote interdisciplinary discussion of issues related to Internet Science among early career researchers (advanced PhD students and those in the first four years of their post-doctoral research career) and industry professionals engaged in work related to Internet privacy and identity, trust and reputation mechanisms. Daily activities will be structured around morning lectures and afternoon discussions aimed at developing participants’ thinking on a range of issues central to the Internet. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their work with leading thinkers in the area of Internet privacy and identity. A range of social events will provide informal opportunities for continued discussions and networking among participants.
About the Network of Excellence in Internet Science
The Network of Excellence in Internet Science aims to develop an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of Internet networks and their co-evolution with society. The network is composed of over thirty research institutions across Europe from a variety of disciplines. Its main objective is to enable an open and productive dialogue between all disciplines that study Internet systems from any technological or humanistic perspective, and which in turn are being transformed by continuous advances in Internet functionality.
