Vienna, Austria - October 24, 2016

*** Deadline extended to August 06, 2016 - 11:59 PM American Samoa time) ***

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 2016 Workshop, held in conjunction with the ACM CCS
conference, is the fifteenth 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:

* anonymization and transparency
* crowdsourcing for privacy and security
* data correlation and leakage attacks
* data security and privacy
* data and computations integrity in emerging scenarios 
* electronic communication privacy
* economics of privacy
* information dissemination control
* insider-threat protection
* models, languages, and techniques for big data protection
* personally identifiable information
* privacy-aware access control
* privacy and anonymity on the Web
* privacy in biometric systems
* privacy in cloud and grid systems
* privacy and data mining
* privacy in the digital business
* privacy in the Internet of Things
* 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 of provenance data
* privacy in social networks
* privacy threats
* privacy and virtual identity
* 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 including bibliography, but
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
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 August 06, 2016 [extended] to be considered. Notification of acceptance or
rejection will be sent to authors by September 05, 2016. The camera
ready must be prepared by September 13, 2016 (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.
