An interdisciplinary conference in Freiburg i. Br./Germany, May 08-10, 2012
Scope of Conference
The purpose of the workshops and of the conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines. IT professionals, lawyers, law enforcement and intelligence agents, as well as judges, prosecutors, forensic specialists and psychologists will contribute their special expertise to the discussion of current security issues, covering topics like anonymity vs. accountability, cybercrime, computer forensics and investigations, legal aspects on current security and privacy issues, resilience in communication infrastructures, human-related security risks, a broad range of privacy matters and traditional IT and network security. The debate on the radical changes in the risk, threat and vulnerability of IT systems condense on this workshop jointly organized by the Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law (MPICC) and the Centre for Security and Society at the University of Freiburg. The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to establish an in-depth contextual knowledge to the challenges of IT security. The better understanding of each others domain should help that new IT security measures and laws do not compromise the openness and democracy of our society.
This conference is already the fifth workshop in a row of events held every two or three years at the Max Planck Institute. It started as a semi-public workshop for the IT people and other interested party in the Max Planck society and other research institutes. With the rising significance of the topic the idea was born to make it an international conference for legal and technical aspects of IT security. The last workshop in 2009 brought together participants from a wide range of technical, legal and sociological backgrounds joined by law enforcement agencies, public prosecutors, external professionals or forensic investigators.
