20th Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2021)
Seoul, South Korea - November 15, 2021
co-located with ACM CCS 2021

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 2021 Workshop, held in conjunction with the
ACM CCS conference, is the twentieth in a yearly forum for papers
on all the different aspects of privacy in today's electronic society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
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:

- access and query privacy
- anonymization and transparency
- crowdsourcing for privacy and security
- data correlation and leakage attacks
- data security and privacy
- data and computations integrity in emerging scenarios
- electronic communication privacy
- economics of privacy
- information dissemination control
- insider-threat protection
- models, languages, and techniques for big data protection
- anonymization of text, unstructured data and multimedia
- anonymization of longitudinal data and streams
- statistical disclosure control
- theory of data anonymization
- privacy models
- network privacy
- personally identifiable information
- privacy-aware access control
- privacy and anonymity on the Web
- privacy in big data
- privacy in biometric systems
- privacy in cloud and grid systems
- privacy and data mining
- privacy in the digital business
- privacy in the Internet of Things
- privacy enhancing technologies
- privacy in health care and public administration
- privacy and human rights
- privacy metrics
- privacy in mobile systems
- privacy in outsourced scenarios
- privacy in sensor networks
- privacy in surveillance systems
- privacy policies
- privacy of provenance data
- privacy in social networks
- privacy threats
- privacy and virtual identity
- user privacy
- wireless privacy

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 no more than 12
pages in the ACM double-column format, excluding the bibliography
and well-marked appendices. 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).

Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at .
Only PDF files will be accepted.
Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without
consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the
extended deadline of July 27, 2021 (11:59 PM American Samoa time) to be
considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent
to authors by September 7, 2021.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will
be presented at the workshop.
