LPW 2023 : 5th Location Privacy Workshop
Call For Papers
* Co-located with the 8th IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy (Euro S&P 2023) *
Location and mobility data are highly sensitive, as they can be used to infer a number of other personal and sensitive data on an individual. However, human mobility is highly predictable, and location information is routinely collected by location-aware devices (e.g. smartphones), connected vehicles, smart transportation systems, e-tolling, and cameras with face recognition among others.
Location privacy is a rapidly developing research area, and the fifth Location Privacy Workshop (LPW 2023) provides a platform for original research and discussion on all technical aspects of privacy and security of location-based services.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
- Security of location-aware mobile devices
- Privacy-enhancing technologies for location-based services
- Privacy and anonymity in (public) transportation systems
- Privacy in connected autonomous vehicles
- Security of smart mobility applications
- Privacy in location-aware social media
- Privacy in position-based advertising
- Malicious and pervasive tracking, de-anonymization
- Cryptographic protocols and schemes for location information
- Data structures for location information
- Security and reliability of positioning systems
- Location verification and authentication
- Location forensics
- Data protection techniques for regulatory (GDPR) compliance
- Location-based contact tracing
Perspective authors are invited to submit novel contributions, application papers and case studies. Submissions should be 6-8 pages in the double-column IEEE S&P conference format, but longer contributions up to 10 pages will be considered. Short papers and position papers (3-4 pages) are also welcome.
Submissions must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation and clarity of exposition.
Submissions are accepted through EasyChair:
Submitted paper must adhere to the IEEE EuroS&P conference template:
Accepted papers will appear in a volume accompanying the main IEEE Euro S&P 2023 proceedings, published by the IEEE. They will be available on IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Scopus, dblp, etc.
One of the authors of each accepted paper is required to present the paper at the conference. We are expecting to hold an in-person workshop and that authors will be able to travel to the conference to present their paper, but we will make allowances for remote presentation in cases where authors of a paper have legitimate reasons for which they are unable to attend in person (full registration will be required in any case).
