                           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 at most 20 pages total.  Committee members are not required to

abstract and contact information.

names, email and postal addresses, phone and fax numbers, and
identification of the contact author.  To the same message, attach

format.  Do NOT send files formatted for word processing packages
(e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files).

Papers must be received by the deadline of AUGUST 23, 2002.
Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the authors
no later than OCTOBER 13, 2002, and authors will have an opportunity
to revise for preproceedings version by NOVEMBER 8, 2002. Authors of
accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at
the workshop.

During the workshop preproceedings will be made available. Final
proceedings with be published, after the workshop, by ACM. Final

the meeting.
