Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2019)
London, UK - November 11, 2019


The Information Revolution has thoroughly transformed society. One of
the major implications of this technological shift has been a massive
increase in the collection, sharing, and analysis of personal data. The
goal of this workshop is to discuss the privacy problems that result as
well as their solutions. This will be the 18th occurrence of this annual
forum, which is held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, government, 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:

attacks on data privacy
location privacy
bias and fairness in machine learning
machine-learning privacy
biometrics privacy
medical privacy
blockchain and cryptocurrency privacy
mobile-device privacy
communication privacy
privacy and digital identity
data anonymization
private data analysis
data-protection schemes
privacy-enhancing technologies
data security
privacy policies
privacy threats
definitions of privacy
private data publishing
economics of privacy
social-network privacy
hardware side channels
usable privacy technologies
human rights and privacy
user profiling
Internet of Things privacy
Web privacy

Paper Submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Regular submissions should be at most 12
pages in the ACM double-column format (specifically, the sigconf format)
excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices. Committee members are
not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be
intelligible without them. Submissions should be anonymized. The
workshop will also consider short submissions of up to 4 pages
(excluding bibliography) 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 pages).

Submissions are to be made on EasyChair
( 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 8, 2019 to be considered. Notification of acceptance or
rejection will be sent to authors by August 22, 2019. The camera ready
must be prepared by August 30, 2019. 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.
