SPRINGL'09 - 2nd ACM International Workshop on Security and Privacy in GIS and LBS

Co-located with 17th ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on
Advances in Geographic Information Systems (ACM GIS 2009)

November 3, 2009, Seattle, WA, USA



Our society is witnessing a dramatic increase in geospatial data infrastructures, data products, and services, many of them playing a key role in decision making in organizations. There are currently major national and international efforts in the coordinated development, use,
sharing, and dissemination of geospatial data in several application contexts including homeland security, environmental crises, and natural and industrial disasters. Geospatial infrastructures are being leveraged
by companies to provide a large variety of location-based services (LBS) able to tailor services to users. However, despite the increase of publicly accessible geospatial information only little attention is being
paid on how to secure geospatial information systems (GIS) and LBS. Privacy is also of increasing concern given the sensitivity of personally-identifiable location information. This is despite major advancements that have been made in secure computing infrastructures
and the secure and privacy-preserving management of traditional (relational) data in particular. Given these pressing needs for securing GIS and LBS as well as assuring privacy, it is compelling to investigate
security and privacy aspects as they relate to the management of geospatial data and the development of both emerging LBS and mission-critical geographic applications.

SPRINGL 2009 is the second workshop in the SPRINGL workshop series that aims at bringing together researchers working on the foundations of the field and on novel applications bridging spatio-temporal data management and security and privacy.


We encourage both researchers and practitioners to participate and
submit papers on topics including, but not limited to the following:

Access control for spatio-temporal databases
Access control for moving object databases
Administration of security and privacy policies
Anonymization techniques for LBS
Application of encryption techniques to LBS
Convergence of physical and logical security
Context-aware access control
Context-aware digital identity management
Context-aware location privacy
Digital rights management for geospatial data
High assurance integrity for geospatial data
Information hiding in geospatial data
Location and movement-aware security
Mobile identities
Obfuscation of sensitive geospatial information
Privacy ontology
Privacy-preserving analysis of spatio-temporal data
Security and privacy policies for geo-social networks
Secure localization
Secure outsourcing of geospatial data
Security and privacy for RFID systems
Security and privacy for streaming data
Security for spatial data infrastructures (SDI)
Service-based access control to geospatial data
Usability of security and privacy services for LBS
Usage control for LBS and mobile users

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously
submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Submitted papers can be of two types:
- Regular Research Papers: these papers should report original research results or significant case studies. They should be at most 10 pages.
- Position Papers: these papers should report novel research directions or identify challenging problems. They should be at most 5 pages.

Each submission should start with: the title, abstract, and names, contact information of authors, type of the submission (research paper or position paper). Papers should use at least 11-point font and reasonable
margins on A4 or US letter-size paper (8.5 inch x 11 inch). Papers must be electronically submitted in PDF format at the following address: Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will
be presented at the workshop. The workshop proceedings will also be part of the ACM Digital Library.

A special issue including the best workshop papers will be organized for publication in the Transactions on Data Privacy (
