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




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.


* 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


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


* Julien Freudiger (EPFL)
* Emiliano De Cristofaro (PARC)


* HotPETs submission deadline: April 16, 2012, 23:59 UTC
* HotPETs notification: May 14, 2012
* HotPETs camera-ready deadline: May 28, 2012, 23:59 UTC
