Privacy by Design in Practice Track at the

33rd ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

The Symposium
For over thirty years has the ACM  Symposium on Applied Computing been a primary gathering forum for  applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and  application developers from around the world. SAC 2018 is sponsored by  the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP www.acm.org/sigapp<http://www.acm.org/sigapp>). Its proceedings are published by ACM; they are also available on the web through the ACM Digital Library www.acm.org/dl<http://www.acm.org/dl>. More information about SAC 2018 can be found at www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2018/<http://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2018/>.

The Privacy by Design in Practice track
The aim of this track  is to promote research on privacy-preserving technologies to be used in  practice. "Privacy by Design" is a requirement in the new EU data  protection regulation, which will be applied in the EU countries from  May 2018. Thus, privacy needs to be considered by engineers from the  beginning and built in to newly developed systems properly.
The track seeks  submissions from academia, industry and public authorities (e.g. data  protection agencies) presenting novel research on how to implement  Privacy by Design in practice. Examples of successful projects where  Privacy by Design has been implemented in practice are especially  welcome. Legal researchers  bringing in their view on Privacy by Design are also very welcome to  submit papers to this track to foster multi-disciplinary research.

Topics of the track include, but are not limited to:
- Privacy Engineering
- Privacy-enhancing Technologies
- Anonymization and Pseudonymization
- Privacy in the Internet of Things (e.g. Smart Home, Smart City, Connected Cars, Smart TV, Smart Grid, etc.)
- Privacy and Quantified Self
- Privacy Laws and their impacts on technology
- Conflict between Privacy and Security

Submission Guidelines
The submission guidelines must be strictly followed for a paper to be considered.
Original papers from  the above mentioned or other related areas will be considered. Only full  papers about original and unpublished research are sought. Parallel  submission to other conferences or other tracks of SAC 2018 is  forbidden. Each paper must be BLIND in the sense that it must only  include its title but not mention anything about its authors.  Self-citation must be in third person, such as "Smith et al. [citation]  showed...". All submissions must be formatted using the ACM  conference-specific LaTeX style, which can be obtained from the  symposium web page. All papers must be submitted by the deadline stated  above.
Papers must be submitted through the symposium-wide paper management system for SAC 2018 at https://www.softconf.com/h/sac2018.

Review and publication of accepted papers
Each paper will be  fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three  referees. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC 2018  proceedings. Some papers may only be accepted as poster papers, and will  be published as extended abstracts in the proceedings.

Student research abstract competition
Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts at www.softconf.com/h/sac-src2018<http://www.softconf.com/h/sac-src2018> following the instructions published at SAC 2018 website. Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed.
