Call for Papers

The deadline is now extended to Noon EDT on June 25, 2006.

The need for privacy-aware policies, regulations, and techniques has been widely recognized. This workshop discusses the problems of privacy in the global interconnected societies and possible solutions. The 2006 Workshop, held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the fifth in a yearly forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today's electronic society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of electronic privacy, as well as experimental studies of fielded systems. We encourage submissions from other communities such as law and business that present these communities' perspectives on technological issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

anonymity, pseudonymity, and unlinkability privacy and confidentiality management
business model with privacy requirements privacy in the electronic records
data protection from correlation and leakage attacks     privacy in health care and public administration
electronic communication privacy public records and personal privacy
information dissemination control privacy and virtual identity
privacy-aware access control personally identifiable information
privacy in the digital business privacy policy enforcement
privacy enhancing technologies privacy and data mining
privacy policies relationships between privacy and security
privacy and anonymity in Web transactions user profiling
privacy threats wireless privacy
privacy and human rights economics of privacy

Paper submissions
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font and reasonable margins on letter-size paper), and at most 20 pages total. (For final publication, you will revise the paper into 10 or so pages of ACM's two-column format, but single-column is easier to review.) Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Like last year, we plan to accept some of the submissions as full papers (15 pages), and we may accept some others as abstracts (3 pages) if they represent novel or interesting work that is not as developed. You can anonymize your pdf if you like, but we expect most authors will not choose to do so.

Papers are to be submitted electronically via the online submission system at https://www.softconf.com/starts/CCS06-WPES/submit.html. Through this form, you will be requested to upload the file of your paper (in PDF or portable postscript format). Do NOT upload files formatted for word processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of noon EDT on June 25, 2006 in order to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by August 2, 2006. Authors of accepted full papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM in a conference proceedings.
