The second workshop on Kids' Online Privacy and Safety (KOPS) held on August 6th, 2023 at the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS 2022), Anaheim, CA, USA is soliciting extended abstracts on privacy and online safety where the focus is on children and teens.  Submissions can include work-in-progress papers, draft proposals, exemplars of ethical research practices in data handling or experimental protocols, pilot demonstrations, or analyses of deployed systems. Accepted abstracts will be invited for a 10-minute talk at the workshop. Abstracts will be made available on SSRN for other participants to read and share. Accepted abstracts will also be made available to workshop attendees ahead of the workshop.

Important Dates:
All dates are at 23:59 AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time.

Workshop paper submission deadline: Thursday, June 1, 2023
Workshop paper acceptance notification to authors: Thursday, June 8, 2023
Workshop final papers due: Wednesday, June 22, 2023

Scope and Focus:
This is the second workshop on Kids' Online Safety and Privacy. The program committee will select abstracts that align well with the goal of the workshop and provide the most useful feedback to participants. We are interested in talks from researchers, industry practitioners, lawyers, and safety advocates to discuss these issues, especially for children and young adults. Topics include, but are not limited to:

 1.  Factors associated with online child crime and misinformation campaigns
 2.  Challenges in child and youth online safety; Strategies and thought experiments for addressing these challenges
 3.  Methodology and lessons learned from designing studies in child online manipulation, including ethical considerations
 4.  Risks of online manipulation, personal information disclosure of child and youth information

The main goal of our workshop is to bring together the study of risks, and safety factors associated with online child crime and campaigns targeting children and teens. The urgency of research exploring the exposure of children and teens to online harms is matched only by the challenges of researching and mitigating these. There is little research to highlight the overlapping manipulation techniques between domains targeting under-18, and limited understanding of how research on adults applies to children.

We encourage researchers to submit work on the overlap in manipulative processes online, the impact and consequences of successful manipulation, risk and resilience factors that may combat manipulative processes, and intervention research aimed at promoting youth online safety. Papers on both the technical and human perspectives are encouraged. This is a highly interactive workshop for engaging in discussion and in collaborative activities to explore critical challenges and proposed solutions in this area. In addition, the discussions and collaborations during the workshop can help authors to enhance the final version of their papers before these are developed into post-workshop proceedings.

This workshop invites position papers, works in progress, and technical demonstrations. Reviewing of the submitted papers is double-blind and submitted papers should avoid revealing the authors’ identities in the text. The submissions should pose at least one and up to three challenge questions in "Kids' Privacy and Online Safety". Submissions may be at most 2 pages excluding references and appendices. Extended abstracts should be in two-column SOUPS format. Currently, the camera-ready versions of position papers are expected to be up to 4 pages (including references and appendices).

Each submission will be discussed in a moderated breakout session. The breakout groups will then come together for a quick de-brief in a cumulative discussion group for 30 minutes. Attendees are encouraged to continue the discussion even after the conclusion of the workshop. By proposing a submission, the authors commit that at least one author will attend the event and would be willing to serve as a breakout group participant on another paper.

Submission Instructions:
Authors are encouraged to follow the submission guidelines available on the SOUPS website ( Extended abstracts in the two-column format should be exported to Portable Document Format (.pdf) and submitted at the following link:
