IFIP TC-9 HCC-9 Stream on
Privacy and Surveillance (IFIP-TC9-HCC9)
within the IFIP World Computer Congress  2010
Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre
2 0 -2 3 September 2010 , Brisbane , Australia

New technical and legal developments pose greater 
and greater privacy dilemmas. Governments have in 
the recent years increasingly established and 
legalised surveillance schemes in form of data 
retention, communication interception or CCTVs 
for the reason of fighting terrorism or serious 
crimes. Surveillance Monitoring of individuals is 
also a threat in the private sector: Private 
organisations are for instance increasingly using 
profiling and data mining techniques for targeted 
marketing, analysing customer buying predictions 
or social sorting. Work place monitoring 
practices allow surveillance of employees. 
Emerging pervasive computing technologies, where 
individuals are usually unaware of a constant 
data collection and processing in their 
surroundings, will even heighten the problem that 
individuals are effectively losing control over 
their personal spheres. At a global scale, Google 
Earth and other corporate virtual globes may have 
dramatic consequences for the tracking and 
sorting of individuals. With CCTV, the 
controlling power of surveillance is in few 
hands. With live, high resolution imagery feeds 
from space in the near future, massive 
surveillance may soon be available to everybody, 
a development whose consequences we do not yet 
grasp. New means of surveillance are also enabled 
by social networks, in which individuals are 
publishing many intimate personal details about 
themselves and others. Such social networks are 
today already frequently analysed by employers, 
marketing industry, law enforcement or social engineering.

The aim of this conference stream is to discuss 
and analyse such privacy risks of surveillance 
for humans and society as well as countermeasures 
for protecting the individuals’ rights to 
informational self-determination from multi-disciplinary perspectives.
