Sixth International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'20) - https://iwpe.info/
Co-located with IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (EuroS&P) - https://www.ieee-security.org/TC/EuroSP2020/
15 June 2020 - Genova, Italy

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 (IWPE20) 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 position informed by evidence-based on a thorough literature review.

IWPE’20 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 or data protection impact assessments in the engineering context
  *   Privacy engineering and data-driven software development
  *   Privacy engineering in machine learning and AI
  *   Privacy engineering and data subject access rights and data portability
  *   Privacy risk management models
  *   Technical standards, heuristics and best practices for privacy engineering
  *   User privacy and data protection requirements
  *   Management of privacy requirements with other system requirements
  *   Privacy-preserving architectures for databases, networks, and the cloud
  *   Privacy engineering in the context of interaction design and usability
  *   Validation and verification of privacy properties and requirements
  *   Engineering Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs)
  *   Integration of PETs into systems or the development ecosystem
  *   Tools and formal languages supporting privacy engineering
  *   Teaching and training privacy engineering
  *   Pilots and real-world applications
  *   Evaluation of privacy engineering methods, technologies and tools
  *   Organizational, legal, political and economic aspects of privacy engineering

This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive as IWPE 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.
For accepted papers, at least one author must attend the workshop.
Important Dates
Paper submission deadline:
Sunday, March 1, 2020 (Anywhere on Earth)
Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Camera ready:
Wednesday, April 1, 2020
Monday, June 15, 2020


IWPE 2020 offers the choice of archival and non-archival paper submissions. The non-archival option is offered to avoid precluding future submissions to area-specific venues.

Accepted archival submissions will be published in IEEE Xplore, which is indexed by EI Engineering Index, ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI-S), Scopus, etc. We are negotiating with a JCR-indexed journal a special issue on privacy engineering, and the best papers will also be invited to submit.

We solicit short papers (up to 4 pages) and long papers (up to 8 pages) reporting technical, research or industry experience on all dimensions of privacy engineering. Each paper, written in English, must follow the IEEE conference proceedings format<https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html>.

At least one of the authors of the accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop to present the paper.
