Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2014)
Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - November 3, 2014

The increased power and interconnectivity of computer systems available
today create the ability to store and process large amounts of data,
resulting in networked information accessible from anywhere at any time.
It is becoming easier to collect, exchange, access, process, and link
information. This global scenario has inevitably resulted in an increasing
degree of awareness with respect to privacy. Privacy issues have been the
subject of public debates, and the need for privacy-aware policies,
regulations, and techniques has been widely recognized. The goal of this
workshop is to discuss the problems of privacy in the global interconnected
societies and possible solutions to them.

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 digital business
- privacy in electronic records
- privacy enhancing technologies
- privacy in health care and public administration
- privacy and human rights
- privacy metrics
- privacy in mobile systems
- privacy in online education
- privacy in outsourced scenarios
- privacy policies
- privacy vs. security
- privacy in social networks
- privacy threats
- privacy and virtual identity
- privacy through accountability
- 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, conference, or
workshop with proceedings. Regular submissions should be at most 10 pages
in the ACM double-column format, 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 24, 2014 to be considered.
Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by
August 25, 2014. The camera ready must be prepared by September 7, 2014 (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 24, 2014
Notification to authors: August 25, 2014
Camera ready due: September 7, 2014
