Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2013)
Berlin, Germany - November 4, 2013

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 2013 Workshop,
held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the twelfth in a yearly
forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today's
electronic society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry 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:

- anonymity, pseudonymity, and unlinkability
- crowdsourcing for privacy and security
- data correlation and leakage attacks
- data security and privacy
- electronic communication privacy
- economics of privacy
- information dissemination control
- models, languages, and techniques for big data protection
- personally identifiable information
- privacy-aware access control
- privacy and anonymity on the Web
- privacy in cloud and grid systems
- privacy and confidentiality management
- privacy and data mining
- privacy in the digital business
- privacy in the electronic records
- 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 policies
- privacy vs. security
- privacy in social networks
- privacy threats
- privacy and virtual identity
- public records and personal privacy
- user profiling
- 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. Regular submissions should be at most 10 pages in the
ACM double-column format including bibliography, but excluding well-marked
appendices, and at most 12 pages total. 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 You will be requested
to upload the file of your paper (in PDF format only). Submissions not
meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
Papers must be received by the deadline of July 29, 2013 to be considered.
Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by
August 23, 2013. The camera ready must be prepared by August 30, 2013 (firm).
Proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM on a CD, available to
the workshop attendees. Papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library,
with a specific ISBN. Each accepted paper must be presented by an author,
who will have to be registered by the early-bird registration deadline.

Paper Submission due: July 29, 2013 (11:59 PM American Samoa time) [extended]
Notification to authors: August 23, 2013
Camera ready due: August 30, 2013 (firm)
