Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2013)
Berlin, Germany - November 4, 2013

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 2013 Workshop, 
held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the twelfth 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                
- crowdsourcing for privacy and security

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 should not 
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 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wpes2013. 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 22, 2013 to be considered. 
Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by 
August 15, 2013. The camera ready must be prepared by August 30, 2013 (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.

Paper Submission due: July 22, 2013 (11:59 PM American Samoa time)
Notification to authors: August 23, 2013
Camera ready due: August 30, 2013 (firm)
