PETools: Workshop on Privacy Enhancing Tools 
July 9, 2013
Bloomington, Indiana, USA

Registration for PETools 2013 is now *OPEN* at http://petsymposium.org/2013/registration.php
*** Early registration (and hotel block) deadline: June 13, 2013 ***

The goal of this workshop is to discuss the design of privacy tools aimed at real-world deployments. This workshop will bring together privacy practitioners and researchers with the aim to spark dialog and collaboration between these communities.

Existing privacy enhancing tools range from web browser plugins to specialized software, and are all aimed at empowering users to better control their privacy. For widespread adoption and continued effectiveness, however, these tools need to be made usable and be continually refined and examined by researchers and developers. While certain tools such as Tor have successfully received such attention, this workshop seeks to stimulate such collaborative efforts for a plethora of privacy enhancing tools and discuss the continued evolution of privacy enhancing tools in the real world.

The full program is available at http://petools.soic.indiana.edu/program/ and features several talks based on submitted abstracts, and three invited talks by Kelly Caine (Clemson University), Roger Dingledine (The Tor Project), and Sid Stamm (Mozilla).
