CFP: The 2022 IEEE International Conference on Privacy Enhancing Technologies
The 2022 IEEE International Conference on Privacy Computing (IEEE PriComp 2022)
Dec. 15-18, Haikou, China
[Submission Deadline: Sep. 1]

IEEE PriComp 2022 supports Virtual Conference for foreign authors out of China.

PriComp 2022 is the 8th in this series of conferences started in 2015 that are devoted to algorithms and architectures for Privacy Computing. PriComp conference provides a forum for academics and practitioners from countries around the world to exchange ideas for improving the efficiency, performance, reliability, security and interoperability of Privacy Computing systems and applications.

Following the traditions of the previous successful PriComp conferences held in Fuzhou, China (2015); Qingdao, China (2016); Melbourne, Australia (2017); Boppard, Germany (2018); Canterbury, UK (2019); Hainan, China (2020) and Xi'an, Shanghai, China (online, 2021); PriComp 2022 will be held in Haikou, China. PriComp 2022 will focus on an evolving pathway from privacy protection to privacy computing, by serving as an international premier forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to address the resulting profound challenges and to present and discuss their new ideas, research results, applications and experience on all aspects of privacy computing. The conference of PriComp 2022 is co-organized by Chinese Information Processing Society of China, Institute of Information Engineering, CAS, and Hainan University.
