Abstract
----------------------------------------------

Last year Bruce Schneier’s article “The Internet is a surveillance state” summarised the state of Internet privacy as “Welcome to an Internet without privacy, and we've ended up here with hardly a fight”. A couple of months later, Snowden shocked the world when he revealed that the US National Security Agency (NSA) were tracking online communication in a large scale surveillance programme known as PRISM. This was quickly followed by revelations that other countries were running similar covert operations. One year on and the story is still making headline news. Just this month, Tim Berners-Lee called on the world to take a stand against surveillance on the web. His suggestion is a global digital "bill of rights" similar to the Magna Carta.

The stage is set for a thrilling debate on the right to privacy and what actions should be taken to protect this right online. This year’s workshop aims to build on last years event by growing the community of individuals actively working on the topic and by promoting discussion beyond the technical aspects, building on aforementioned current events. It aims to capture the intersection between society, policy and technology, for example by debating the need and foundation for a global digital "bill of rights" similar to the Magna Carta as suggested by Tim Berners-Lee.

----------------------------------------------
Topics Of Interest
----------------------------------------------

The topics of this workshop are different from previous workshops and events which were usually focused on technology and inspired by current societal events and trends. This workshop aims to capture the intersection between society, policy and technology, for example by debating the need and foundation for a global digital "bill of rights" similar to the Magna Carta as suggested by Tim Berners-Lee. Therefore we have structured the topics in three main areas as follows.

Society and privacy
- Case studies: what are the societal privacy implications of semantic technologies?
- What is the impact of semantic technologies on privacy in specific domain?
- What are appropriate societal conventions to protect privacy?
- What are desirable privacy situations?
- When do we want to control information flow?
- Privacy awareness in social communities

Legal and policy perspective of privacy
- Managing personal information disclosure
- What laws support privacy management and enforcement?
- What new legislation might be necessary?
- Privacy legislation compliance
- How to influence policy making?
- How to synchronise policies of different legal domains?
- Personal data and the role of the data controller/processor

Technology perspective
- How can societal conventions be supported by technologies?
- Anonymity and identity discovery
- Techniques for anonymity, pseudonymity and unlinkability
- Privacy implications of data integration and data linking
- Protecting against pattern/behaviour discovery and community mining
- Protecting against data falsification
- Non-repudiation and digital signatures
- Usage control and accountability
- Data provenance and trustworthiness of knowledge sources

----------------------------------------------
Format and Submission Procedure

Contributions to the workshop can be made in terms of papers and reports as well as position papers addressing different issues of the stated topics of interest. Research papers and reports (up to 12 pages) and position papers (up to 6 pages), must adhere to the LNCS Style. Papers must be submitted in PDF format through the workshop submission site at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=privon2014.
