CFP: First International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'15)

IMPORTANT DATES Deadline of paper submission: 23 January, 2015 Notification
of acceptance: 16 February, 2015 Accepted Paper camera ready: 3 March, 2015
************************************************************ We are pleased
to invite you to participate in the premier annual event of the
International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'15). 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 and organizational 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. Even if so, it is
difficult to systematically evaluate whether the systems they develop using
such techniques comply with legal frameworks, provide necessary technical
assurances, and fulfill users’ privacy requirements. It is evident that
research is needed in developing techniques 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 (socio-)technical systems that address these
requirements is of increasing value to respond to the existing societal
challenges associated with privacy. 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 different ICT domains such as health, energy,
transportation, social computing, law enforcement, public services; based
on different infrastructures such as cloud, grid, or mobile computing and
architectures. While there is a consensus on the benefits of an engineering
approach to privacy, concrete proposals for processes, models,
methodologies, 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'15) focus on all the aspects surrounding 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 papers: (1) technical solution papers that illustrate a novel
formalism, method or other research finding 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 engineering tasks in privacy
requirements, design, implementation, testing, etc.; (4) interdisciplinary
studies or critical reviews of existing privacy engineering concepts,
methods and frameworks; or (5) vision papers that take a clear position
informed by evidence based on a thorough literature review. IWPE’15
welcomes papers that focus on novel solutions on the recent developments in
the general area of privacy engineering. Topics of interests include, but
are not limited to: -Integration of law and policy compliance into the
development process -Privacy impact assessment -Privacy risk management
models -Privacy breach recovery Methods -Technical standards, heuristics
and best practices for privacy engineering -Privacy engineering in
technical standards -Privacy requirements elicitation and analysis methods
-User privacy and data protection requirements -Management of privacy
requirements with other system requirements -Privacy requirements
operationalization -Privacy engineering strategies and design patterns
-Privacy architectures -Privacy engineering and databases -Privacy
engineering in the context of interaction design and usability -Privacy
testing and evaluation methods -Validation and verification of privacy
requirements -Engineering Privacy Enhancing Technologies -Models and
approaches for the verification of privacy properties -Tools supporting
privacy engineering -Teaching and training privacy engineering -Adaptations
of privacy engineering into specific software development processes -Pilots
and real-world applications -Privacy engineering and accountability
-Organizational, legal, political and economic aspects of privacy
engineering This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; since IWPE'15 is
interested in all aspects of privacy engineering. However, papers without a
clear application to privacy engineering will be considered out of scope
and may be rejected without full review.
************************************************************ PAPER FORMAT &
SUBMISSION We solicit unpublished short position papers (up to 4 pages) and
long papers reporting technical, research or industry experience (up to 8
pages) on all dimensions of the privacy engineering domain. Each paper,
written in English, must follow IEEE Proceedings format. Submission of a
paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be
accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the workshop to present
the paper. All papers must be submitted via EasyChair at
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwpe15 All IWPE'15 Papers will
be published in IEEE eXplore, which is indexed by EI Engineering Index, ISI
Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI-S), Scopus etc.
