===================== CALL FOR PAPERS =======================

Springer Nature on Computer Science


The growing use of digital services is leading to generalized concerns 
on privacy. Processing of personal data is carried out by all sorts of 
entities, including, in many cases, third parties. National and/or 
regional legislation, such as EU’s General Data Protection Regulation 
(GDPR), aims at providing legal assurances in what concerns the 
protection of personal data/Personal Identifiable Information (PII). On 
the other hand, an increasing number of frameworks, tools, and 
applications, demand personal data – such as identity-related data, 
social security data, financial data, and sensitive individual health 
data – covering all sorts of areas, from public administration to the 
private sector. Given the above, ways for guaranteeing privacy, for 
protecting personal data and for ensuring digital identity have never 
been so high.

Submissions can be up to 8000 words long, excluding bibliography and 
appendices. In this context, this topical issue is seeking original, 
previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another 
conference or journal, on subject matters that include but are not 
restricted to:

- privacy enhancing architectures, frameworks, mechanisms, tools, and 
business processes;
- privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs);
- technical solutions for supporting GDPR compliance;
- data protection Governance;
- technical solutions for supporting consent in information society 
- technical solutions for supporting child's consent;
- data protection by design and/or data protection by default principles;
- practical implementation of data protection by design and/or by default;
- practical implementation of GDPR compliance in SMEs;
- practical implementation of GDPR compliance in non-profit organizations;
- use of blockchain in privacy protection and/or GDPR compliance;
- privacy-aware identity management;
- privacy-aware access control;
- artificial intelligence and privacy;
- privacy and data protection in cloud-based systems, IoT systems, and 
smart environments;
- privacy-related risk assessment and management;
- privacy-preserving data/process mining;
- economics of privacy;
- privacy, data protection and digital identity standardization;
- security/cybersecurity for supporting privacy, data protection, and 
digital identity;
- pilots and use cases.

Contributions describing overall working systems and reporting real 
world deployment experiences are of particular interest.
