Call for Papers

This seminar continues a tradition of PhD workshops on e-voting. Since 2006, the seminar focuses on current research of PhD students on various aspects of e-voting including technical aspects, legal challenges, identity management, verifiability of the vote, etc.

The goal of the seminar series is to foster understanding and collaboration between PhD students from various disciplines. To this end, the program allows space for discussion and initiating collaboration based on presentations by attendees.

The target audience is:
    ■    PhD students directly in the field of e-voting (computer scientists, mathematicians, logicians, legal experts, public administration, political science, social scientists, cryptographers, anthropologists, etc.);
    ■    PhD students in related areas, where privacy, authentication, integrity and trust play a role, and for whom e-voting constitutes an interesting application domain;
    ■    Master students in e-voting and related areas are welcome to participate. Proposals for presentations will be considered if possible.
    ■    Academics and professionals with an interest in the topic of e-voting and who are willing to assist the participating PhD students with their research are welcome to join the seminar.


Participants who wish to present their work will be able to submit a proposal of some two pages length through the EasyChair page of the colloquium https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=phdv2019. This includes recent work, ideas for papers or open problems, or other issues where feedback from colleagues would be helpful etc.
In particular, we encourage participants to present their topic even if they are not advanced in their research. Please precise in your document wether you prefer to give a short  (15+10min of discussion) or a long presentation (30+15min of discussion).
