Call For Papers


Workshop on Privacy by Transparency in Data-Centric-Services (PTDCS)

Workshop webpage:
In conjunction with BIS'15:


Big Data has developed into a key factor of the economy that benefits users and providers of data-centric services. However, the analysis of growing volumes of users data in data-centric services also presents significant privacy challenges. The objective of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners together to explore transparency-based mechanisms, such as dashboards, economic explanations of the use of privacy and value of data, as well as user behavior. In particular, the goal of this workshop is to set thematic milestones for the technical development of transparency mechanisms on the one hand, and on the other, trace ways in which technical progress, users and industry could profit from transparency. A major focus will be set on Transparency-Enhancing Technologies (TET) and, in particular, Privacy Dashboards. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Accountability in Data-Centric Services
Economics of TET
Privacy Dashboards
Privacy Economics
Privacy Policy Specification and Negotiation
Privacy in Socio-Technical Systems
Privacy-Enabled Business Models
Requirements for TET
Transparent Behavioral Targeting
Transparent Usage Control

Paper Submission

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration. Authors must follow the LNBIP formatting guidelines. Deadline for submission is March 22, 2015.
