Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2011)
Chicago, IL, USA - Monday, October 17th, 2011

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 2011 Workshop, held in conjunction with the
ACM CCS conference, is the tenth 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. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- anonymity, pseudonymity, and unlinkability
- data correlation and leakage attacks
- data security and privacy
- electronic communication privacy
- economics of privacy
- information dissemination control
- personally identifiable information
- privacy-aware access control
- privacy and anonymity in the Web
- privacy in cloud and grid systems
- privacy and confidentiality management
- privacy and data mining
- privacy in the digital business
- privacy in the electronic records
- privacy enhancing technologies
- privacy in health care and public administration
- privacy and human rights
- privacy metrics
- privacy in mobile systems
- privacy in outsourced scenarios
- privacy policies
- privacy vs. security
- privacy in social networks
- privacy threats
- privacy and virtual identity
- public records and personal privacy
- user profiling
- wireless privacy

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Regular submissions should be at most
10 pages in the ACM double-column format, excluding well-marked
appendices, and at most 12 pages total. Committee members are not
required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be
intelligible without them. Submissions are not required to be
anonymized. The workshop will also consider short submissions of up
to 4 pages for results that are preliminary or that simply require
few pages to describe. Authors of regular submitted papers will
indicate at the time of submission whether they would like their
paper to also be considered for publication as a short paper
(4 proceedings pages).

Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at
You will be requested to upload the file of your paper
(in PDF format only). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk
rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be
received by the deadline of *July 16, 2011 (11:59 PM Samoa Time)* to be considered.
Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by
*August 14, 2011*. The camera ready must be prepared by *August 25, 2011*
(firm). Proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM on a CD,
available to the workshop attendees. Papers will be included in the
ACM Digital Library, with a specific ISBN. Each accepted paper must
be presented by an author, who will have to be registered by the
early-bird registration deadline.

Deadline for submission of all papers: July 16, 2011, 11:59 PM Samoa Time (firm)
Acceptance notification: August 14, 2011
Final papers due: August 25, 2011
