Subject: Call for student participation

Hi all,

The upcoming DIMACS privacy workshop will have a session devoted to
short submitted talks, with preference given to younger researchers
(students, postdocs). We advertised this on our blogs and Google+, but
apparently these venues do not have as wide a readership as we like to
imagine. I'm attaching the call for submissions here -- please
distribute it to any young privacy researchers who you think might
like to present.


DIMACS Workshop on Differential Privacy across Computer Science
October 24-26, 2012
(immediately after FOCS 2012)

Call for Abstracts -- Short Presentations

The upcoming DIMACS workshop on differential privacy will feature
invited talks by experts from a range of areas in computer science as
well as short talks (5 to 10 minutes) by participants.

Participants interested in giving a short presentation should send an
email to asmith+dimacs at psu.edu containing a proposed talk title,
abstract, and the speaker's name and affiliation.  We wil try to
accommodate as many speakers as possible, but
a) requests received before October 15 will get full consideration
b) priority will be given to junior researchers, so students and
postdocs should indicate their status in the email.

More information about the workshop:

The last few years have seen an explosion of results concerning
differential privacy across many distinct but overlapping communities
in computer science: Theoretical Computer Science, Databases,
Programming Languages, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Security, and
Cryptography. Each of these different areas has different priorities
and techniques, and despite very similar interests, motivations, and
choice of problems, it has become difficult to keep track of this
large literature across so many different venues. The purpose of this
workshop is to bring researchers in differential privacy across all of
these communities together under one roof to discuss recent results
and synchronize our understanding of the field. The first day of the
workshop will include tutorials, representing a broad cross-section of
research across fields. The remaining days will be devoted to talks on
the exciting recent results in differential privacy across
communities, discussion and formation of interesting open problems,
and directions for potential inter-community collaborations.
