Call For Papers

As the amount and sensitivity of personal information disseminated on the Web increase, so do related privacy concerns. The ambition of the Workshop on Hot Topics in Privacy Enhancing Technologies (HotPETs) is to foster new ideas, spirited debates, as well as controversial perspectives on privacy (and lack thereof).

Held in conjunction with the PET Symposium, HotPETs is an established, vibrant forum providing researchers with a unique chance to receive feedback from privacy specialists.

The nature of HotPETs' discussion-oriented format is especially suited to promising preliminary results, interdisciplinary research, as well as hands-on experimentation with privacy-enhancing technologies. However, submissions of full-blown work seeking dissemination and feedback from the community are also encouraged.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

. Interdisciplinary research connecting privacy with: economics, legal issues, cultural perspectives, ethnography, usability, medicine
. Hands-on experimentation with PETs
. Real-life challenges of PETs deployment
. Out-of-the-box approaches to privacy protection
. Government Surveillance
. Studying relevance of PETs in recent protest movements
. Privacy in health-care, genomics, and biotechnologies
. Experiences and perspectives in Do-not-track and Bitcoin initiatives
. Cryptographic protocols with application to privacy
. Game-theoretical approaches to privacy
. Social networks and location privacy
. Privacy-enhanced access control and authentication

The HotPETs Workshop has no official proceedings. Selected papers will not be included in PETS proceedings, not to preclude later publication of a full paper in other venues. If needed, authors may request workshop co-chairs to contact organizers of other venues to clarify the nature of HotPETs publications.

HotPETs chairs:

Emiliano De Cristofaro (PARC)
Julien Freudiger (EPFL)
