Summer School 2024

Welcome to our Graz Security Week 2024, held from 23. – 27. September! It is hosted by the IAIK – the Institute of Applied Information Processing and Communication at Graz University of Technology. This school targets graduate students interested in security, privacy, and correctness.

The main topics of the school this year are:

  • Cryptography & Cryptographic Implementations
  • Side Channels
  • Privacy
  • Safe AI

During the five-day school, participants will gain awareness of these security challenges. Introductory classes are supplemented by advanced courses and practical lab sessions. Students are encouraged to present their current research topics in a special PhD Forum. During spare time participants are invited to enjoy the city of Graz and attend organized events.

Impressions from last year


All participants will receive a certificate of attendance. There is also the option to obtain a certificate with 2 ECTS credits for students that (A) give a lightning talk of their research during the PhD forum and/or (B) successfully complete the exercises of the labs.
