Next Workshop

2nd Workshop

1st Workshop

 Workshop on Privacy Enhancing Technologies

Hotel Elbflorenz Dresden, Germany      26 - 28 March   2003

Thanks to Microsoft EU and MITACS, it looks like we're going to have some sponsor funding to help offset costs. But since paying the full cost for people would quickly drain our funds, we will instead give out smaller stipends to quite a few people.

If you want a chance at some of the money, send mail to [address removed] by February 16 with a subject line of "PET2003 stipend proposal" and the following information:

  • name, affiliation, and contact info
  • whether you are a full-time student
  • how much of a stipend it would take for you to attend PET
    (Please don't simply add up all your costs and tell us that number --- rather, think about how much you need to make this more in line with a reasonable nearby conference, etc. The more you ask for, the less likely you are to get it. We're much more likely to cover just registration than registration+hotel+airfare.)
  • a brief (10 lines or less) description of why you deserve this money
    (This could be papers you've written that influenced the field or were in the PET series; other work you've done that would add value to the workshop or the field; a statement from your advisor about why we'd benefit from having you here, or why you'd benefit from being here; a summary of why you're so excited about anonymity; etc.)
  • whether there is anybody else who could possibly pay for it
    (Stipends are not meant to replace funding from your company, university, etc. They're meant for people who have no other funding source but who would still benefit from and be useful to the workshop.)

Of course, there's no guarantee that we'll have enough money to go around. We plan to spend the money in a way that best advances the field of privacy enhancing technologies, through a combination of encouraging new blood as well as experienced researchers.

We'll consider all stipend proposals received by February 16 on equal footing. After that, it's first-come first-served if we have any money leftover.
