  • Behavioral aspects of security, privacy and trust in online and offline scenarios
  • Human-computer interaction challenges in the contexts of security, privacy, and trust
  • Privacy, security and technology policy challenges and solution approaches
  • Risk and security management from a theoretical and practical perspective
  • Multidisciplinary approaches to the ethics of artificial intelligence and algorithmic systems
