The 2nd edition of the Privacy by Design in Practice track at the

34th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

April 8 – 12, 2019 / Limassol, Cyprus

** Call for Papers **

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 2019 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP 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. More information about SAC 2019 can be
found at www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2019/.

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. 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 authorities) 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

Topics of the track include, but are not limited to:

-      Privacy Engineering

-      Privacy-enhancing Technologies

-      Privacy Patterns

-      Anonymization and Pseudonymization

-      Privacy in the Internet of Things (e.g. Smart Home, Smart City,
Connected Cars, Smart TV, Smart Grid, etc.)

-      Conflict between Privacy and Security

-      Privacy Laws and their impacts on technology

Submission Guidelines

The submission guidelines must be strictly followed for a paper to be

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 Only full papers about original and unpublished research are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
2019 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. The standard length of a submission in the stated
format is 8 pages. Longer papers (up to 10 pages maximum) will imply an
additional charge. All papers must be submitted by the deadline stated

Papers must be submitted through the symposium-wide paper management
system for SAC 2019 at www.softconf.com/h/sac2019.

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 2019 proceedings. Some papers may only be accepted as poster papers,
and will be published as extended 3-page (up to 4 pages maximum at
additional cost) abstracts in the proceedings. According to the authors'
guidelines, which can be obtained from the symposium web page
(https://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2019/), at least one author per accepted
paper must register before the paper is included in the proceedings.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the papers and
posters in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending
SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for all accepted
papers, posters, and invited SRC submissions to be included in the ACM
digital library.

No-show of scheduled papers, posters, and student research abstracts
will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.

Student research abstract competition

Graduate students are invited to submit 4-pages research abstracts at
www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2019/submission_src.html following the
instructions published at SAC 2019 website. Submission of the same
abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed.
