Call For Papers

Nowadays we are witnessing the democratization of Internet services. As a result, more and more end-users (individuals and businesses) are adopting the concept of Software-as-a-Service for achieving their transactions (shopping, administrative procedures, B2B transactions, etc.). In such scenarios, personal data is generally transferred among several entities, therefore end-users need to (i) be aware of the collection, processing, storage and retention of personal data and (ii) to have necessary means to hold service providers accountable for the usage of their data. Dealing with personal data raises several issues that must be considered in the creation and use of novel Cloud services. Accountability, privacy and data protection gained more interest recently with the ongoing European Data Protection Regulation Reform and the NSA privacy violation scandal in the US.

Accountability is the property of a service of being responsible for its actions according to the data stewardship regime in which organizations that are entrusted with personal and business confidential data. This includes, among others, the obligations manage user consent, to report security breaches when they occur, to provide evidence data processing practices, etc. Such concerns need to be part of software or cloud services from their design to implementation, but also of their discovery, composition, execution, and auditing.

The goal of this track is to offer academic and industrial researchers and practitioners a platform for discussions related to privacy and accountability issues in software components and cloud services.

We target contributions from both academia and industrials on the following topics, but not limited to:

Accountability and data protection in the cloud
Privacy and Trust for the Cloud
Accountability/Privacy techniques and models
Accountability/Privacy in Web and cloud services
Accountability/Privacy policy description frameworks
Accountability/Privacy aware software development and design
Accountability/Privacy aware software composition and mashup
Auditing of cloud services
Accountability evidences
Use cases and real world development and experiences
Tools and frameworks for accountability
