Mid-Term PhD Workshop

25th E-voting PhD Colloquium: 7-8 April 2020

ITU Copenhagen, Denmark

IMPORTANT NOTE – This workshop has been cancelled due to COVID-19!

The colloquium focus will be to exchange and discuss current research of PhD students, in particular governance, organization and technical set-up of both polling station and Internet-based e-voting.

This colloquium continues the tradition of PhD workshops on e-voting. Since 2006 the PhD seminars have focused on various aspects of e-voting including technical aspects, legal challenges, identity management, verifiability of the vote, etc. The seminars took place in various locations in Austria, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Luxembourg, Catalonia, and Switzerland. The goal of the seminar series is to foster understanding and collaboration between PhD students from various disciplines working on e-voting. To this end, the program allows plenty of space for discussion and initiating collaboration based on presentations by attendees.

The target audience is:

  • PhD students 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.


The colloquium will be located at the IT University of Copenhagen. There are no registration fee. More information about accommodation possibilities will be available soon.


Each interested participant should submit his/her research proposal (or alternatively ideas for papers, open problems, or other issues where feedback from colleagues would be helpful etc.) of some two pages length using the conference platform: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=evotingphd2020

During the venue, each PhD student presents his research proposal and there will be enough time to discuss the content with the PhD students and senior researchers.
