Annals of Telecommunications:
Special Issue on: Privacy-aware electronic society

Our electronic society is making fast progress for offering users greater
comfort in their daily activities. Users can benefit from fast access to
services, better reactivity of their physical, computing and
networking environments to their own needs and habits, and preselection of
information flows and relationships they have interest in. Our digital society
is eager to collect information for serving users as best as possible, but
also to make profits by potentially selling the collected information.
Profiling users is one usual marketing activity, but new lucrative
applications based on the huge amount of available information are emerging,
with total disregard to the privacy of the users.

There are a number of sources for collecting information like social networks,
cloud computing, electronic transactions, RFID/NFC systems, biometrical
applications... For users to keep confidence in computing systems and
communication networks, and for making their basic privacy rights observed,
there is a strong need to identify a framework covering the legal, economical,
ethical, social and technical disciplines. Regulation is essential for
authorities to approve that framework and give support for worldwide
observability. Economy is also a key issue for users and providers negotiating
the delivery of personal information vs the provision of a service at an
acceptable price. Ethical and social aspects are also important, at least to
identify how confidence can be best provided back to users. Finally, methods
are fundamental for enforcing this framework through privacy-by-design, and
in-depth knowledge of privacy threats.

Given the recent events reported by the media, the growing requirements of
users for privacy, and the lack of privacy-aware framework, Annals of
Telecommunications is organizing a Special Issue on these topics. The
objectives of this Special Issue are twofold: first, research and
implementation experiences, and experiments; second, novel research
contributions addressing privacy issues under the technical viewpoint and one
among the legal, economical, ethical or social viewpoint.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Economics of privacy;
- Human factors in privacy;
- Legal and ethical issues;
- Privacy by design;
- Privacy enhancing technologies;
- Privacy in networks, and services;
- Privacy in smart grids, and cloud computing;
- Privacy in social applications and networks;
- Privacy models;
- Privacy threats.
