Digital Security and Privacy


Science can serve as an intellectual bridge between cultures, religions, and political systems; the workshop is an instance of Scientific Diplomacy to address challenges in Digital Security and Privacy by constructive col-laboration: It will connect the respective research communities of Iran, Austria, and Germany. Based on the long, historic relations between Iran and these countries the event will provide a platform to establish con-tacts and scientific cooperation that will improve mutual relations.
