International Workshop on

Privacy in Pervasive Environments (PiPE´07)

Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal, Nov 25 - 30, 2007

http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf

Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag

Privacy has been a hot topic ever since the early 19th century. Today, the vision of ubiquitous computing, and pervasive environments brings up new challenging problems to be addressed. Privacy issues are some of the main concerns about pervasive computing: the vision of Mark Weiser ultimately can fail without explicit control by the individual what data is disclosed when, how, to whom, and under which constraints. The International Workshop on Privacy in Pervasive Environments aims to discuss problems and possible solutions related to privacy in a globally interconnected society. The workshop is targeted at researchers working on privacy and security for pervasive computing and related areas.

Topics of interest may include one or more of the following (but are not limited to) themes:

  • Privacy in pervasive computing environments
  • Geoprivacy
  • Location anonymity techniques
