Call for Papers / Contributions:

The first Amsterdam Privacy Conference (APC) in the Netherlands, Oct 7-10 2012, 
is a multidisciplinary conference which aims to address privacy from all angles 
and disciplines. Confirmed keynote speakers include Alessandro Acquisti 
(CMU), Peter Hustinx (EPDS), Ross Anderson (Cambridge, UK), Priscilla 
Regan (George Mason) and Helen Nissenbaum (NYU).

Part of APC are the first International Workshop on Privacy and Data 
Protection Technology (PDPT, http://www.apc2012.org/content/pdpt12/), and 
the first International Workshop on Engineering EHR Solutions (WEES, 
http://www.iwees.org). These workshops specifically address technical 
issues, related to privacy and data protection in general and to privacy 
and security issues in large-scale electronic health record systems, 
respectively.

The submission deadlines have been extended to June 16.

The calls for papers are listed below. Please consider forwarding to 
appropriate groups.

CALL FOR PAPERS

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

http://www.apc2012.org/content/pdpt12/

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 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 problems that occur when translating privacy requirements and 
(international) regulations into technology.

PDPT invites papers that address technical problems and solutions to control 
privacy and to protect data in a wide variety of large-scale distributed 
systems that process personal data -- ranging from smart metering systems to 
social networking, to clouds and intelligent transport systems.

PDPT sollicits papers on practical technical contributions including novel 
solutions for privacy and data protection in large-scale distributed 
systems. The workshop seeks to explore novel technologies and innovative 
ideas, as well as concrete use cases and practical problems relating 
to privacy protection. We also invite experience papers that describe privacy 
enhancing technology, data protection controls, privacy by design and privacy 
assessments of real-world systems.

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 issues 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 security: privacy policies, mechanisms
- auditing and provenance
- analysis of security in existing systems
- privacy issues in smart metering systems, internet of things, etc.
- apps and mobility
- 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
- (sticky) privacy policies
- cloud security
- consent management
- privacy enhancing technologies
- de-identification and anonymization/pseudonymization 
- cryptographic data protection techniques, key management
- centalized versus decentralized architectures
- threat models, vulnerabilities, forensics and intrusion detection 
- data breach management and notification
- the human factor: usability and security
- stakeholder influence on design
- privacy impact and (security) risk assessments

Submitted papers should clearly demonstrate the relation to the broader privacy 
and data protection questions discussed at the conference. Contributions from 
computer science as well as other disciplines are allowed. Although technical 
contributions are invited, presentations at the conference should be 
comprehensible to APC's multidisciplinary audience.

Deadlines:
- June 16 2012: paper/abstract submission deadline (extended deadline)
- July 12 2012: notification of acceptance
- July 27 2012: camera ready submission deadline
- Oct 8-10 2012: workshop (precise date TBA)

CALL FOR PAPERS

The 1st International Workshop on Engineering EHR Solutions (WEES)

http://www.iwees.org/

The first Workshop on Engineering Electronic Health Record Solutions (WEES) 
intends to become a lively forum for discussing real-world problems associated 
with the design and implementation of large-scale systems for exchanging 
medical information.

Over recent years, increasingly large-scale systems for health information 
exchange and communication have been designed and built, ranging from small 
systems to support collaborating professionals at a regional scale, to very 
large-scale, even National systems. Systems at an European and U.S. scale are 
currently being considered. Systems at this scale, particularly for the 
exchange of sensitive information, bring in an unprecedented range of problems 
from usability to scalability to availability to security to privacy.

WEES intends to be the premier scientific forum to discuss these problems. The 
workshop invites contributions from all scientific disciplines, including 
computer science, healthcare, sociology and psychology. However, papers with 
technical merit, tangible results, or concrete practical solutions are 
preferred. Privacy and security issues are particularly relevant. Also, 
experience papers describing real-world systems are invited.

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 a challenging or novel idea
   related to engineering real-world large-scale EHR systems
- full papers up to 12 pages, presenting more polished or mature
   research results, or experience papers.

Paper submissions will be peer reviewed and, if accepted, included in the APC 
conference proceedings. When sufficient high-quality papers are accepted, we 
will seek a high-quality special journal issue or volume for selected papers.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- security architecture and analysis of real-world systems
- requirement analysis and tradeoffs
- interconnected health information exchange systems
- privacy policy enforcement 
- authentication and authorization
- auditing and provenance, transparancy
- (experiences with) consent models
- the role of patients in authorization and information disclosure
- stakeholder influence on design decisions
- data breach detection and notification
- privacy enhancing technologies
- cryptographic techniques and key management
- push and pull communication models
- usability issues (professional and patient perspective)
- data representation, standardization
- segmentation and access control
- Hospital information systems security after I vs. Finland
- Health information technology for developing countries
- data ownership, professional vs. personal health records
- centralized vs. decentralized architectures
- scalability versus security
- privacy impact and risk assessments

Deadlines:
- June 16 2012: paper/astract submission deadline (extended deadline)
- July 12 2012: notification of acceptance
- July 27 2012: camera ready submission deadline
