                    Workshop on
Applications of Private and Anonymous Communications
         (in conjunction with Securecomm 2008)

          September 22, 2008, Istanbul, Turkey

During the last few decades we have seen a tremendous
number of activities (and publications) regarding
anonymous communication systems, how to make them
better, various attacks, defenses etc. Even though
the implicit assumption of any anonymity work is to
have it applied in a real world, few of those
activities focus on actual practical systems, and the
questions remain if we are doing research on the right
thing? how far we are from dealing with the real
issues? and are the goals that we try to achieve with
these systems those that we are optimizing for?

This workshop solicits papers concerned with what
happens on top of and around the anonymizing layer,
with a view of how this affects the anonymity system.
That is in some ways the user's, operator's, ISP's,
etc. view of and experience with anonymity systems and
how anonymity systems need to be improved.

Topics of interest are (but not limited to):

     * Use cases for anonymous communication systems
     * Practical experiences with anonymous
        communication systems
     * Case studies
     * Novel applications of anonymous communication
     * Economic incentives / business models for using
        or deploying anonymous communication systems
     * Performance and evaluation tools of real systems
     * Usability
     * Feedback from real users
     * Legal issues with running anonymous communication

Important dates:
     * Submission deadline: (extended to) 6 July 2008
     * Notification date: 24 July 2008
     * Camera ready submission deadline: 10 August 2008
     * Workshop: 22 September 2008
