PrivTech SS20

PrivTech SS20

Seminar on Privacy-Preserving Technologies (PrivTech) offered during SS20.

In this seminar, we will look at techniques for protecting privacy that allow to process sensitive data under encryption without revealing the data itself. We will investigate both the theoretical background as well as practical issues of such solutions.

Participants choose a topic for which they get one or two publications that they will summarize in a written report and present in a talk.

Due to the ongoing corona virus pandemic, we will run the PRIVTECH 2020 kick-off event as an online course with a pre-recorded welcome lecture. Individual meetings with your supervisor are possible remotely via video conferencing platforms.

We hope that the situation will improve throughout the summer term such that we can host the presentation day as an in-person event. However, in any case (even if it must be organized as an online event), participation during the entire presentation day (18.08., 09:00 – 17:00) is mandatory in order to complete the course.
