                           CALL FOR PAPERS                 

               Washington, DC, USA - November 21, 2002               
Sponsored by ACM SIGSAC - in association with 9th ACM CCS Conference         


The increased power and interconnectivity of computer systems
available today provide the ability of storing and processing 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. Goal of this workshop is to discuss the
problems of privacy in the global interconnected societies and
possible solutions to it.

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
- business model with privacy requirements
- data protection from correlation and leakage attacks
- electronic communication privacy
- information dissemination control
- privacy-aware access control 
- privacy in the digital business
- privacy enhancing technologies
- privacy policies and human rights
- privacy and anonymity in Web transactions
- privacy threats
- privacy and confidentiality management
- privacy in the electronic records
- privacy in health care and public administration
- public records and personal privacy
- privacy and virtual identity
- personally identifiable information
- privacy policy enforcement
- privacy and data mining
- relationships between privacy and security
- user profiling
- wireless 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.  Papers should be at
most 15 pages excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices
(using 11-point font and reasonable margins on letter-size paper), and

the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them.
Papers should have a cover page with the title, authors, abstract and
contact information.
