My colleagues Melanie Volkamer (Technical University of Darmstadt) and Manuel Kripp (E-Voting.CC) are organizing a bi-annual PhD workshop, the next to be held in Krems/Austria on 7 and 8 May 2011. Our fellow election updates co-author Thad will hopefully also be present to give some insights from his perspective. Application letter is due 2011-01-31. Read more about it here.
It can greatly be combined with submitting also a paper to the CEDEM conference (taking place at the same location just before the workshop) where Melanie and Thad organize a track on e-voting. Deadline for submissions is a bit earlier, actually on 2010-12-01.
