PETS 2013: 13th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium
July 10-12, 2013, Bloomington, Indiana, USA

The Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) aims to advance the
state of the art and foster a world-wide community of researchers and
practitioners to discuss innovation and new perspectives.
Papers should present novel theoretical or practical research into the
design, analysis, experimentation, or fielding of privacy-enhancing
technologies. While PETS has traditionally been home to research on
anonymity systems, we strongly encourage submissions in topics such as
cryptography, HCI, data privacy, and in emerging areas (e.g., mobile,
social, cloud, ubiquitous). Some suggested topics are listed below.

. Camera-ready deadline: April 27, 2013


. Behavioral targeting
. Building and deploying privacy-enhancing systems
. Cryptographic tools for privacy
. Data protection technologies
. Differential and crowd-blending privacy
. Economics of privacy and game-theoretical approaches to privacy

Papers describing experiments with users or user data (e.g. network
traffic), should follow the basic principles of ethical research, e.g.,
beneficence (maximizing the benefits to an individual or to society while
minimizing harm to the individual), minimal risk (appropriateness of the
risk versus benefit ratio), voluntary consent, respect for privacy, and
limited deception. Authors may be asked to include explanation of how
ethical principles were followed in their final papers should questions
arise during the review process.


We also invite proposals of up to 2 pages for panel discussions or other
relevant presentations. In your proposal, (1) describe the nature of the
presentation and why it is appropriate to the symposium, (2) suggest a
duration for the presentation (ideally between 45 and 90 minutes), and
(3) suggest some possible presenters.


Please see complete Call for Papers at for additional information on
submission guidelines and copyright agreements.
