iPAT 2019

2nd Interdisciplinary Workshop on Privacy and Trust (iPAT 2019)

to be held in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security
(ARES 2019 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)

August 26 – August 29, 2019, Canterbury, UK

Mobile information and communication technology have become virtually ubiquitous due to the proliferation of smartphones and tablet computers; large sections of the society use it to their advantage. However, this convenience comes along with an increasing collection and assessment of the users’ personal data. Research has shown that most users are often unaware of this increasing infringement of their privacy. Yet there is a group of users that expresses concerns about the collection of their personal data. These users might be highly motivated to protect their data but lack the ability and technical expertise to do so. In order to support both user groups in protecting their private data, an interdisciplinary approach is needed to develop privacy enhancing technologies that address not only technical aspect, but also aspects related to usability, psychology, economy, sociology, philosophy, and law.

This interdisciplinary workshop thus seeks submissions from a wide range of disciplines (computer science, usability, law, economics, psychology, sociology, philosophy, ethics, …) that cover the various aspects of privacy and trust.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

(Mobile) Security, Privacy and Trust
Legal and Economic Aspects of Security, Privacy and Trust
Data Protection Law in Theory and Practice
Societal Aspects of Security, Privacy and Trust
Digital Rights and Net Neutrality
Philosophical and Ethical Dimensions of Privacy and Trust

Usable & Transparency-Enhancing Security and Privacy
Data Processing and Transparency
Mental Models of Security, Privacy, and Trust
Mass Surveillance
Legal, Economic and Societal aspects of “Dark Patterns”
