ABSTRACT

Privacy-enhancing solutions, both technical and social, are needed to
drive development of ubiquitous computing in a socially acceptable
direction. The goal of this workshop is to develop an understanding of
how social studies can inform the design and evaluation of
privacy-enhancing solutions (technical approaches and complementary
social mechanisms) in ubicomp.

When engaging a ubicomp system to interact with another agent, whether
user or system, users have to concern themselves with the
trustworthiness of the other agent, the environment they are in, and the
controller of the environment. Many actors are involved, each with
different incentives to gather and use information about the user. It is
unrealistic to assume clean separations between technical, behavioral,
legal and social factors influencing privacy. For example, from an
economic perspective, the user is in a bad situation: the agents most
able to implement privacy technologies are usually the ones (e.g.
employers, e-vendors, law enforcement) most incentivized to gather
information about the user. Conversely, the user is often the least
powerful actor in the ecology. For these reasons, it is
likely that social mechanisms will need to augment technical solutions
if privacy is to hold its ground.

This workshop aims to provide a forum for ubicomp system developers,
security researchers, social scientists, legal experts and consumer
privacy advocates to collaboratively explore the future of
socially-informed privacy-enhancing solutions (technical approaches and
complementary social mechanisms) in ubiquitous computing. Questions from
other disciplines other than computer science (e.g., economics,
sociology, law, public policy) will also contribute significantly to the
workshop.
