1st International Workshop on Privacy and Data Protection Technology (PDPT)


As part of the first Amsterdam Privacy Conference, held in Amsterdam, the 
Netherlands from Oct 7-10 2012, the first International Workshop on 
Privacy and Data Protection Technology (PDPT) seeks to be a lively forum 
for discussing novel technical privacy and data protection solutions. 
Translating International privacy and data protection laws and regulations, 
such as the upcoming revision of the European data protection framework, 
can be a difficult and challenging problem. This workshop aims to shed 
light on the problem of translating privacy requirements and regulations 
into technology. PDPT invites papers that discuss technical solutions to 
control privacy and to protect data in a wide variety of large-scale 
distributed systems - ranging from smart metering systems to social 
networking, to intelligent transport systems.

PDPT sollicits papers on practical technical contributions including novel and 
potentially groundbreaking solutions for privacy and data protection in 
large-scale distributed systems and applications. The workshop seeks to explore 
novel technologies, innovative ideas, concrete use cases and practical 
problems, and invites experience papers that describe privacy enhancing 
technology, data protection controls, and privacy by design in real-world 

The workshop accepts the following types of submissions:

- 1 or 2-page abstracts for oral or poster presentations;
- position papers up to 4 pages, presenting challenging or novel approaches on 
privacy and data protection;
- full papers up to 10 pages, presenting more mature research results, or 
experience papers.

Paper submissions will be peer reviewed and, if accepted, included in the APC 
conference proceedings.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- privacy by design
- (technical) privacy controls, policies, mechanisms
- analysis of security in existing systems
- applications: smart metering systems, internet of things, etc.
- apps and mobility
- auditing and provenance
- privacy implications of tracking data and data access
- implementation of removal rights and the right to be forgotten
- transparency (by design)
- authentication and authorization, access control mechanisms
- fine-grained information flow policies
- cloud security including data ownership, data storage, data management
- location-dependent (and sticky) privacy policies
- (distributed) consent management
- e-Identity frameworks 
- privacy enhancing technologies
- de-identification and anonymization/pseudonymization techniques
- cryptographic data protection techniques, key management
- threat models, vulnerabilities, and intrusion detection systems
- network threats, tooling, cybercrime and forensics
- data breach management and notification
- the human factor: usability aspects
- stakeholder influence on design
- privacy impact and (security) risk assessments

Besides contributions from computer science, we invite multidisciplinary
papers and submissions from related research fields such as psychology or 
sociology, as long as the paper is technical in nature and related to any of 
the topics above.

Submitted papers should clearly indicate how they relate to the broader privacy 
and data protection questions discussed at the conference. The topic of the 
paper should bear relevance to the problems which are discussed at APC2012. 
Presentations should be comprehensible to the multidisciplinary audience that 
is attracted to APC 2012.

- June  1 2012: paper/abstract submission deadline (hard deadline)
- June 23 2012: notification of acceptance
- July 23 2012: camera ready submission deadline
- Oct 8-10 2012: workshop (precise date TBA)
