CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The 15th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS 2015)

As the amount and the sensitivity of information disseminated in the online
world grow, so do related privacy concerns. Extensive surveillance and
massive tracking of users on the Web are only some of today’s threats to
individual privacy. In the big data era, information increasingly equals
power and money, and organizations are thus motivated to collect and retain
large quantities of personal and, increasingly, contextual information.


The Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) aims to advance the
state of the art and foster a worldwide community of researchers and
practitioners to discuss innovation and new perspectives. It brings
together privacy experts from around the world to discuss recent advances
and new perspectives. PETS announces novel research efforts toward
designing and building systems for privacy and anonymity protection as well
as analyzing challenges and threats.


The full program for the event can be found at
http://petsymposium.org/2015/program.php:

it includes 23 accepted papers, panels and a keynote talk by *Jonathan Katz*
