********Submission Deadline Approaching**********

*Call for Papers: Fifth International Workshop on Privacy Engineering
(IWPE'19) *
co-located with the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy
May 23, 2019 - Hyatt Regency, San Francisco, CA

*Deadline of abstract submission:   January 30, 2019*
*Deadline of paper submission:      February 3, 2019*
*Notification of acceptance:        February 23, 2019 *
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 5th International
Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'19).

Ongoing news reports regarding global surveillance programs, massive
personal data breaches in corporate databases, and notorious examples of
personal tragedies due to privacy violations have intensified societal
demands for privacy-friendly systems. In response, current legislative and
standardization processes worldwide aim to strengthen individual’s privacy
by introducing legal, organizational and technical frameworks that personal
data collectors and processors must follow.

However, in practice, these initiatives alone are not enough to guarantee
that organizations and software developers will be able to identify and
adopt appropriate privacy engineering techniques in their daily practices.
It is also difficult to systematically evaluate whether the systems
developed comply with legal frameworks, provide necessary technical
assurances, and fulfill users’ privacy requirements. It is evident that
research is needed in developing techniques and tools that can aid the
translation of legal and normative concepts, as well as user expectations
into systems requirements. Furthermore, methods that can support
organizations and engineers in developing systems that address these
requirements are of increasing value.

In this context, privacy engineering research is emerging as an important
topic. Engineers are increasingly expected to build and maintain
privacy-preserving and data-protection compliant systems in domains such as
health, energy, transportation, social computing, law enforcement, public
services; based on different infrastructures such as cloud, grid, or
mobile. While there is a consensus on the benefits of an engineering
approach to privacy, concrete proposals for models, methods, techniques and
tools that support engineers and organizations in this endeavor are few and
in need of immediate attention.

To cover this gap, the topics of the International Workshop on Privacy
Engineering (IWPE'19) focus on all the aspects of privacy engineering,
ranging from its theoretical foundations, engineering approaches, and
support infrastructures, to its practical application in projects of
different scale. Specifically, we are seeking the following kinds of

(1) technical papers that illustrate the engineering or application of a
novel formalism, method or other research finding (e.g., a privacy
enhancing protocol) with preliminary evaluation;

(2) experience and practice papers that describe a case study, challenge or
lessons learned from in a specific domain;

(3) early evaluations of tools and other infrastructure that support
privacy-related tasks;

(4) interdisciplinary studies or critical reviews of existing privacy
engineering concepts, methods, tools and frameworks;

(5) vision papers that take a clear position informed by evidence based on
a thorough literature review.


IWPE 2019 offers the choice of archival and non-archival paper submissions.
The **non-archival* *option is offered to avoid precluding future
submissions to area-specific venues. Accepted archival submissions will be
published in IEEE eXplore, which is indexed by EI Engineering Index, ISI
Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI-S), Scopus, etc.

We solicit short papers (up to 4 pages) and long papers (up to 8 pages)
reporting technical, research or industry experience on all dimensions of
privacy engineering. Each paper, written in English, must follow the IEEE
conference proceedings format.

At least one of the authors of the accepted paper is expected to attend the
workshop to present the paper.

All papers must be submitted via EasyChair at
