The workshop will look at, e.g., the following questions:

    * How much personal data do individual personalization methods
      really need? Can we find out in advance or in hindsight what types of
      data contribute to reasonably successful personalization in a specific
      application domain, and restrict data collection to these types of
      data?

    * Is client-side personalization a possible answer to privacy
      concerns and legal restrictions? What technical, legal and business
      obstacles will have to be overcome?

    * In what way should the user be involved in privacy decisions?
      What does appropriate notice and choice look like, and what rights
      must and should be granted?

    * Will we need trusted third parties, and what services will we
      need them to provide?

    * How much can we benefit from anonymity or pseudonymity
      infrastructures, and are there limits that should be observed?

    * Are distributed user models an answer or a problem from a
      privacy perspective?

    * Does personalization in a mobile context pose additional
      challenges? How can they be overcome?

    * Do mobile user models pose additional privacy problems?

    * How can multi-user personalized systems cater to the privacy
      constraints of each individual user?

    * What should an ideal legal framework look like from the
      perspective of privacy-enhanced personalization?

    * Are special provisions necessary in the case of people with
      disabilities and student-adaptive educational systems?

Two types of contributions are invited:

    * Papers describing (ongoing) work on one or more of the topics
      for the workshop (8 page maximum)

    * Position statements regarding one or more of the topics for the
      workshop (2 page maximum)

Each paper and position statement will be reviewed by at least two
reviewers. Accepted contributions will be published in the workshop
proceedings and will be available on the Web before the
workshop. Depending on the quality of the accepted papers, a
post-conference book publication is also envisaged.
