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 2012 Workshop, held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the eleventh 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 in social networks
data privacy privacy in the cloud systems
economics of privacy privacy in the electronic records
electronic commerce privacy privacy metrics
health information privacy privacy policies
identity management privacy threats
location privacy privacy vs. security
personally identifiable information privacy-aware access control
privacy and anonymity in the Web privacy-preserving computation
privacy and confidentiality management public records and personal privacy
privacy and data mining traffic analysis
privacy and human rights unobservability
privacy enhancing technologies usability of privacy technologies
privacy in health care and public administration user profiling
privacy in mobile computing wireless privacy
privacy in pervasive and ubiquitous computing

Submission instructions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Regular submissions should be at most 10 pages in the ACM double-column format, excluding well-marked appendices, and at most 12 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions should not be anonymized. The workshop will also consider short submissions of up to 4 pages for results that are preliminary or that simply require few pages to describe. Authors of regular submitted papers will indicate at the time of submission whether they would like their paper to also be considered for publication as a short paper (4 proceedings pages).

Authors are requested to register an abstract on the submission site by July 12, and the papers must be uploaded to the site by July 17 to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by August 13, 2011. The camera ready must be prepared by August 21, 2011 (firm). Proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM and made available to the workshop attendees. Papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library, with a specific ISBN. Each accepted paper must be presented by an author, who will have to be registered by the early-bird registration deadline.
