Call for Papers (Submission website CLOSED)

The need for privacy-aware policies, regulations, and techniques has been widely recognized. This workshop discusses the problems related to privacy in the global interconnected society and their possible solutions. The 2007 Workshop, held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the sixth in a yearly forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today's electronic society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of electronic privacy, as well as experimental studies of fielded systems. We encourage submissions from other communities such as law and business that present these communities' perspectives on technological issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

anonymity, pseudonymity, and unlinkability

privacy and confidentiality management

business model with privacy requirements

privacy in the electronic records

data protection from correlation and leakage attacks    

privacy in health care and public administration

electronic communication privacy

public records and personal privacy

information dissemination control

privacy and virtual identity

privacy-aware access control

privacy in the digital business

privacy policy enforcement

user profiling

Privacy in social networks

wireless privacy

economics of privacy

privacy and human rights


Paper submissions
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using single-column, 11-point font and reasonable margins on letter-size paper), and at most 20 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions are not required to be anonymized. Like last year, we plan to accept some of the submissions as full papers (15 pages), and we may accept some others as abstracts (3 pages) if they represent novel or interesting work that is not as developed.

Papers are to be submitted electronically via the online submission system (closed). Through this form, you will be requested to upload the file of your paper (in PDF or portable postscript format). Do NOT upload files formatted for word processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of June 3 June 10, 2007 in order to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by July 22, 2007. Authors of accepted full papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM in a conference proceedings.
