We are pleased to invite you to participate in the premier annual event
of the International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'17).
Ongoing news reports regarding global surveillance programs, massive
personal data breaches in corporate databases, and notorious examples of
personal tragedies due to privacy violations have intensified societal
demands for privacy-friendly systems. In response, current legislative
and standardization processes worldwide aim to strengthen individual’s
privacy by introducing legal, organizational and technical frameworks
that personal data collectors and processors must follow.

However, in practice, these initiatives alone are not enough to
guarantee that organizations and software developers will be able to
identify and adopt appropriate privacy engineering techniques in their
daily practices. Even if so, it is difficult to systematically evaluate
whether the systems they develop using such techniques comply with legal
frameworks, provide necessary technical assurances, and fulfill users’
privacy requirements. It is evident that research is needed in
developing techniques and tools that can aid the translation of legal
and normative concepts, as well as user expectations into systems
requirements. Furthermore, methods that can support organizations and
engineers in developing (socio-)technical systems that address these
requirements is of increasing value to respond to the existing societal
challenges associated with privacy.

In this context, privacy engineering research is emerging as an
important topic. Engineers are increasingly expected to build and
maintain privacy-preserving and data-protection compliant systems in
different ICT domains such as health, energy, transportation, social
computing, law enforcement, public services; based on different
infrastructures such as cloud, grid, or mobile computing and
architectures. While there is a consensus on the benefits of an
engineering approach to privacy, concrete proposals for models, methods,
techniques and tools that support engineers and organizations in this
endeavor are few and in need of immediate attention.

To cover this gap, the topics of the International Workshop on Privacy
Engineering (IWPE'17) focus on all the aspects surrounding privacy
engineering, ranging from its theoretical foundations, engineering
approaches, and support infrastructures, to its practical application in
projects of different scale. Specifically, we are seeking the following
kinds of papers: (1) technical papers that illustrate the engineering or
application of a novel formalism, method or other research finding
(e.g., a privacy enhancing protocol) with preliminary evaluation; (2)
experience and practice papers that describe a case study, challenge or
lessons learned from in a specific domain; (3) early evaluations of
tools and other infrastructure that support engineering tasks in privacy
requirements, design, implementation, testing, etc.; (4)
interdisciplinary studies or critical reviews of existing privacy
engineering concepts, methods, tools and frameworks; or (5) vision
papers that take a clear p!
 osition informed by evidence based on a thorough literature review.

IWPE’17 welcomes papers that focus on novel solutions on the recent
developments in the general area of privacy engineering. Topics of
interests include, but are not limited to:
-Integrating law and policy compliance into the development process
-Privacy impact assessment during software development
-Privacy risk management models
-Privacy breach recovery Methods
-Technical standards, heuristics and best practices for privacy engineering
-Privacy engineering in technical standards
-Privacy requirements elicitation and analysis methods
-User privacy and data protection requirements
-Management of privacy requirements with other system requirements
-Privacy requirements elicitation and analysis techniques
-Privacy engineering strategies and design patterns
-Privacy-preserving architectures
-Privacy engineering and databases, services, and the cloud
-Privacy engineering in networks
-Engineering techniques for fairness, transparency, and privacy in databases
-Privacy engineering in the context of interaction design and usability
-Privacy testing and evaluation methods
-Validation and verification of privacy requirements
-Privacy Engineering and design
-Engineering Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs)
-Integration of PETs into systems
-Models and approaches for the verification of privacy properties
-Tools and formal languages supporting privacy engineering
-Teaching and training privacy engineering
-Adaptations of privacy engineering into specific software development
-Pilots and real-world applications
-Evaluation of privacy engineering methods, technologies and tools
-Privacy engineering and accountability
-Privacy engineering and business processes
-Privacy engineering and manageability of data in (large) enterprises
-Organizational, legal, political and economic aspects of privacy
This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; since IWPE'17 is
interested in all aspects of privacy engineering. However, to screen out
off-topic papers early in the review process, we request authors to
submit an abstract prior to their paper submission. Abstracts of papers
without a clear application to privacy engineering will be considered
outside the scope of this workshop and may be rejected.

We solicit unpublished short position papers (up to 4 pages) and long
papers reporting technical, research or industry experience (up to 8
pages) on all dimensions of the privacy engineering domain. Each paper,
written in English, must follow IEEE Proceedings format. Authors must
submit an extended abstract prior to the paper submission. This abstract
is aimed at 1) helping organizers understand whether the paper is
on-topic early in the review process; and, 2) allowing reviewers to
choose their preferred manuscripts in advance of the paper submission.
Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should
the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the
workshop to present the paper. All papers must be submitted via
EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwpe17
