Workshop on Privacy
in the Electronic Society
Alexandria, VA, USA - October 30, 2006


The need for privacy-aware policies, regulations, and techniques has been
widely recognized. This workshop discusses the problems of privacy in the
global interconnected societies and possible solutions. The 2006 Workshop,
held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the fifth in a yearly
forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today's
electronic society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
research on all theoretical and practical aspects of electronic privacy,
as well as experimental studies of fielded systems. We encourage
submissions from other communities such as law and business that present
these communities' perspectives on technological issues.

Paper submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Submissions should be at most 15 pages
excluding the bibliography and well-marked appendices (using 11-point font
and reasonable margins on letter-size paper), and at most 20 pages total.
Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the
paper should be intelligible without them. Like last year, we plan to
accept some of the submissions as full papers (15 pages), and we may
accept some others as abstracts (3 pages) if they represent novel or
interesting work that is not as developed.

Papers are to be submitted electronically via the online submission system
Through this form, you will be requested to upload the
file of your paper (in PDF or portable postscript format). Do NOT upload
files formatted for word processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or
WordPerfect files). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk
rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received
by the deadline of June 2, 2006 in order to be considered. Notification of
acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by July 23, 2006. Authors
of accepted full papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented
at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published by the ACM in a
conference proceedings.
