General Information

The seminar will take place in form of a conference. The typical phases of a scientific publication will be followed through the example of a paper:

  • Submission (Abstract)
  • Review Process
  • Talk (General information, Schedule)

    • 1 person: 20 minutes + 5 minutes questions/answers
    • 2  persons: 30 minutes + 10 minutes questions/answers

  • Submission (Full Paper)

All presentations will take place on one day (two days if needed). This day will be organized similar to a talk or visit at a scientific conference. This format ensures that the preparation times are identical for all participants. We will meet all together only twice: to award topics/preliminary discussion and at the talks. Questions that arise during the work of the individual topics will be discussed with the respective supervisor in individual meetings. Further information is available at the preliminary discussion.

The slides from the "Presentation Skills" workshop can be found here.

For the presentations the following template has to be used: PPT. Please note the comments within the template and consider them for your own presentation

The best presentation will be awarded with a price.

Questions regarding your grade should be addressed to your own supervisor.

Teaching goals

Our everyday life moves more and more towards the Internet. E-business and e-banking have become the normality for a significant proportion of our society and further electronic processes begin to enter the field. While we already use the Internet for many activities like shopping, banking, gaming, and communicating with friends both in the private and business sector, the number of applications is still increasing. As prime example, electronic voting becomes an alternative or even substitution for traditional voting channels in many countries like Estonia or Norway. All these applications have in common that they are security-critical systems which need to meet many security properties from a technical point of view but which also need to be usable in a way that the implemented security is effective in practice and not only theoretically – and accepted by society.

The goal of this seminar is to better understand the challenges. Therefore, we offer topics, which

  • focus on the security properties in electronic voting [EV]
  • focus on the human and society factors in different security-critical areas and applications [HS]

Topics, Elaborations and Talks

There are two types of seminar topics: [L] means Literature Review, [S] means re-running a published study. You are welcome to suggest your own topic in one of the areas: until April 23, 2014. Please feel free to contact the corresponding contact person for further information about the topics. In the first meeting (April, 24), topics will be assigned.
