Call for Posters

The 2nd IEEE Symposium on Privacy-Aware Computing (PAC 2018)

September 26-28, 2018, Washington, DC, USA

Sponsored by The IEEE Computer Society

The explosive expansion of our information ecology, from online social networks to Internet of Things, from e-health to smart cities, makes everyday individuals producers of massive trails of data, sometimes voluntarily and other times unconsciously.  These data contain a gold mine of knowledge for businesses and consumers alike, but also reveal rich personal information or sensitive knowledge of their individual contributors or organizational owners, causing significant privacy concerns.
Yet, we know very little about this complex "privacy ecosystem" around individuals, organizations, and data. To enable privacy-aware computing paradigms with responsible data practices, it is important to understand the roles, responsibilities and motivations of all parties involved in the ecosystem, study their collaborative or combative relationships, and identify the design frontiers of technological, social, legal, managerial, and organizational solutions.
The existing research on information privacy is arguably balkanized across several disciplines, from computer security/privacy to data science, from psychology to sociology, from computer-human interaction to management information systems.  The 2018 IEEE Symposium on Privacy-Aware Computing (PAC) has a specific mission of bringing together experts across these communities to present and discuss recent advances and new perspectives on related research.
For the poster program, we invite research-in-progress, opinion/position papers, and system demonstrations on both the technological development of privacy enhancements and the usage of quantitative/qualitative social scientific methodologies to study and validate theories about privacy.  Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

-        Differential privacy

-        Economics of privacy

-        Location privacy

-        Managerial practices and organizational policies on privacy

-        Privacy in smart and connected health

-        Privacy in smart cities

-        Privacy in the Internet of Things

-        Privacy on social media

-        Societal, legal, and ethical issues in privacy

-        Theoretical and empirical study of privacy concerns and behavior

-        Usability and adoption of privacy-enhancing technologies
