Call for Papers

Due to several requests the deadline is extended to June 17, 2004 (firm)

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 2004 Workshop is the third in what we hope will be a yearly forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today's electronic society. The first two workshops in the series were held in Washington, in conjunction with the 9th ACM CCS conference and with the 10th ACM CCS conference, respectively. The success of the first two editions of the workshop and the increased interest of the community in privacy issues, is the main reason for repeating the event.

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.

Authors are invited to submit their contributions electronically through the web site http://seclab.dti.unimi.it/wpes2004/submissions.html. Submission must be in the form of a ps (Postscript), or pdf (Adobe) file. Do NOT submit files formatted for word processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files).

Papers must be received by the deadline of June 17, 2004 in order to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by August 2, 2004. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM in a conference proceedings.
