> CALL FOR PAPERS

HotPETs 2012: 5th Workshop on Hot Topics in Privacy Enhancing Technologies
(Held in conjunction with the 12th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium
-- PETS 2012)
July 13, 2012, Vigo, Spain
http://petsymposium.org/2012/hotpets.php


> WHAT IS HOTPETS
As the amount and sensitivity of personal information disseminated on the
Web increase, so do related privacy concerns. The ambition of the Workshop
on Hot Topics in Privacy Enhancing Technologies (HotPETs) is to foster new
ideas, spirited debates, as well as controversial perspectives on privacy
(and lack thereof). Held in conjunction with the PET Symposium, HotPETs is
an established, vibrant forum providing researchers with a unique chance to
receive feedback from privacy specialists. The nature of
HotPETs' discussion-oriented format is especially suited to
promising preliminary results, interdisciplinary research, as well as
hands-on experimentation with privacy-enhancing technologies.
However, submissions of full-blown work seeking dissemination and feedback
from the community are also encouraged.


> TOPICS OF INTEREST
* Interdisciplinary research connecting privacy with: economics,
legal issues, cultural perspectives, ethnography, usability, medicine
* Hands-on experimentation with PETs
* Real-life challenges of PETs deployment
* Out-of-the-box approaches to privacy protection
* Government Surveillance
* Studying relevance of PETs in recent protest movements
* Privacy in health-care, genomics, and biotechnologies
* Experiences and perspectives in Do-not-track and Bitcoin initiatives
* Cryptographic protocols with application to privacy
* Game-theoretical approaches to privacy
* Social networks and location privacy
* Privacy-enhanced access control and authentication


> PUBLICATION INFORMATION
The HotPETs Workshop has no official proceedings. Accepted papers will be
distributed among attendees but will not be included in PETS proceedings,
not to preclude later publication of a full paper in other venues. If
needed, authors may request workshop co-chairs to contact organizers of
other venues to clarify the nature of HotPETs publications.
