PinSoDa 2012: 1st International Workshop on Privacy in Social Data
(In conjunction with ICDM 2012)
December 10, 2012, Brussels, Belgium


One of the most fascinating challenges of our time is understanding the complexity
of the global interconnected society we inhabit. Today we have the opportunity to
observe and measure how our society intimately works, by analyzing the big data,
i.e, the digital breadcrumbs of human activities sensed as a by-product of the
ICT systems that we use. These data describe the daily human activities: for instance,
automated payment systems record the tracks of our purchases, search engines record
the logs of our queries for finding information on the web, social networking services
record our connections to friends, colleagues and collaborators, wireless networks
and mobile devices record the traces of our movements and our communications.
These social data are at the heart of the idea of a knowledge society, where decisions
can be taken on the basis of knowledge in these data. Social data analysis can help us
understand complex social phenomena, such as mobility, relationships and social connections,
economic trends, spread of epidemics, opinion diffusion, sustainability, and so on.
The opportunities of discovering knowledge from social data increase with the risk of
privacy violation: during knowledge discovery, the risk is the uncontrolled intrusion into
the personal data of the data subjects, namely, of the (possibly unaware) people whose data
are being collected, analyzed and mined. Privacy intrusion jeopardizes trust: if not
adequately countered, they can undermine the idea of a fair and democratic knowledge society.
The purpose of this workshop is to encourage principled research that will lead to the
advancement of the science of privacy and data protection on social data.

Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:
– Privacy-preserving analysis/mining of social data (e.g., spatio-temporal data, query logs data,
transactional data, social networking data, ...)
– Privacy-preserving publishing of social data (e.g., spatio-temporal data, query logs data,
transactional data, social networking data, ...)
– Anonymity in location-based services
– Context-aware location privacy
– Information hiding in geospatial data
– Interdisciplinary approaches and studies (e.g., law, economy, sociology, etc. )
– Privacy ontology
– Privacy policies for social networks
– Privacy in cloud computing
– Privacy in e-services
– Social implications of privacy
– Security and privacy metrics
– Privacy-preserving outsourcing of data mining tasks
– Privacy for streaming data
– Privacy in monitoring systems
– Privacy in industrial systems
– Privacy in pervasive/ubiquitous computing and mobile systems
– Usability and privacy
– Attacks and defenses
– Data Protection and Law Enforcement
– Legal and ethical privacy issues
– Data portability, Right to Oblivion
– Transparency tools
– Privacy issues in Profiling
