  The increased power and interconnectivity of computer systems available today provide the ability of storing and processing large amounts of data, resulting in networked information accessible from anywhere at any time. It is becoming easier to collect, exchange, access, process, and link information. This global scenario has inevitably resulted in an increasing degree of awareness with respect to privacy. Privacy issues have been the subject of public debates and the need for privacy-aware policies, regulations, and techniques has been widely recognized. Goal of this workshop is to discuss the problems of privacy in the global interconnected societies and possible solutions to it.
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 personally identifiable information
privacy in the digital business privacy policy enforcement
privacy enhancing technologies privacy and data mining
privacy policies and human rights relationships between privacy and security
privacy and anonymity in Web transactions user profiling
privacy threats wireless privacy

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. Papers should be at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 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. Papers should have a cover page with the title, authors, abstract and contact information.
To submit a paper, send to wpes@dti.unimi.it a plain ASCII text email containing the title and abstract of your paper, the authors' names, email and postal addresses, phone and fax numbers, and identification of the contact author. To the same message, attach your submission (as a MIME attachment) in PDF or portable postscript format. Do NOT send files formatted for word processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files).
Papers must be received by the deadline of August 23, 2002. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the authors no later than October 13, 2002, and authors will have an opportunity to revise for preproceedings version by November 8, 2002. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop.
During the workshop preproceedings will be made available. Final proceedings with be published, after the workshop, by ACM. Final versions are not due until after the workshop, giving the authors the opportunity to revise their papers based on discussions during the meeting.
