Call for Papers
19th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS 2019) 
Stockholm, Sweden
General information: https://petsymposium.org/ 
Submission server: https://submit.petsymposium.org/2019.1/

The annual Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) brings together privacy experts from around the world to present and discuss recent advances and new perspectives on research in privacy technologies. The 19th PETS event will be organized by KTH and held in Stockholm, Sweden 2019 (exact dates TBD). Papers undergo a journal-style reviewing process and accepted papers are published in the journal Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETs).

PoPETs, a scholarly, open access journal for timely research papers on privacy, has been established as a way to improve reviewing and publication quality while retaining the highly successful PETS community event. PoPETs is published by De Gruyter Open, the world's second largest publisher of open access academic content, and part of the De Gruyter group, which has over 260 years of publishing history. PoPETs does not have article processing charges (APCs) or article submission charges.

Submitted papers to PETS/PoPETs should present novel practical and/or theoretical research into the design, analysis, experimentation, or fielding of privacy-enhancing technologies.

Authors can submit papers to PoPETs four times a year, every three months, and are notified of the decisions about two months after submission. In addition to accept and reject decisions, papers may receive 'resubmit with major revisions decisions', in which case authors are invited to revise and resubmit their article to one of the following two issues. We endeavor to assign the same reviewers to revised versions. Papers accepted for an issue in the PoPETS 2019 volume must be presented at the symposium PETS 2019.

Submit papers for PoPETs 2019, Issue 1 at https://submit.petsymposium.org/2019.1/. Submitted papers must be anonymized, and may be at most 15 pages excluding bibliography and appendices and 20 pages total. Reviews are double blind. Please see the submission guidelines at https://petsymposium.org/authors.php#submission-guidelines and view our FAQ at https://petsymposium.org/faq.php for more information about the process.

Important Dates for PETS 2019 Issue 1
All deadlines are 23:59:59 American Samoa time (UTC-11)
Paper submission deadline: May 31, 2018 (firm)
Rebuttal period: July 9 -- 11, 2018
Author notification: August 1, 2018
Camera-ready deadline for accepted papers and minor revisions (if accepted by the shepherd): September 15, 2018

Authors invited to resubmit with major revisions can submit the revised (full) paper two weeks after the stated deadline. Such papers must, however, be registered with an abstract by the usual deadline. All other papers than these major revision resubmissions must be submitted by the stated deadline, including papers submitted to and rejected from previous issues. To benefit from the two-week deadline extension, major revisions must be submitted to one of the two issues following the decision. Major revisions submitted to later issues are treated as new submissions, due by the regular deadline and possibly assigned to new reviewers.

Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:
Behavioural targeting
Blockchain technologies applied to privacy
Building and deploying privacy-enhancing systems
Crowdsourcing for privacy
Cryptographic tools for privacy
Data protection technologies
Differential privacy
Economics of privacy and game-theoretical approaches to privacy
Empirical studies of privacy in real-world systems
Forensics and privacy
Human factors, usability and user-centered design for PETs
Information leakage, data correlation and generic attacks to privacy
Interdisciplinary research connecting privacy to economics, law, ethnography, psychology, medicine, biotechnology, human rights
Location and mobility privacy
