13th International Workshop on Data Privacy Management (DPM 2018)
Barcelona, Spain -- September 6-7, 2018
(co-located with ESORICS 2018)

DPM is an annual international workshop covering research in data privacy
Organizations are increasingly concerned about the privacy of information
that they manage (as witnessed, for example, by lawsuits filed against
organizations for violating the privacy of customer's data). Thus, the
management of privacy-sensitive information is very critical and important
for every organization. This poses several challenging problems, such as
how to translate the high-level business goals into system-level privacy
policies, administration of privacy-sensitive data, privacy preserving data
integration and engineering, privacy preserving access control mechanisms,
information-oriented security, and query execution on privacy-sensitive
data for partial answers. Starting from these observations, the aim of DPM
is to discuss and exchange ideas related to data privacy management. We
invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in privacy,
security, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their
original papers in this workshop. Submissions by PhD students as well as
controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are
also encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Privacy Information Management
- Privacy Policy-based Infrastructures and Architectures
- Privacy-oriented Access Control Languages and Models
- Privacy in Trust Management
- Privacy in Digital Currencies
- Privacy Data Integration
- Privacy Risk Assessment and Assurance
- Privacy Services
- Privacy Policy Analysis
- Data Protection Regulations in Practice
- Cryptographic Protocols for Privacy
- Query Execution over Privacy Sensitive Data
- Privacy Preserving Data Mining
- Privacy for Integrity-based Computing
- Privacy Monitoring and Auditing
- Privacy in Social Networks
- Privacy in Ambient Intelligence (AmI) Applications
- Individual Privacy vs. Corporate/National Security
- Privacy in computer networks
- Privacy and RFIDs
- Privacy and Big Data
- Privacy in sensor networks
- Privacy in the Internet of Things
- Privacy and Security Management in Cloud Computing
- Privacy and Security Management in the IoT
- Privacy and Security Management in Pervasive Computing

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers can be submitted as Full Papers or Short Papers.
Full papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS format, including the
bibliography and well-marked appendices. Short papers should be at most 8
pages in the LNCS format, including the bibliography and well-marked
appendices. Program Committee members are not required to read the
appendices, so papers should be intelligible without them.

Authors should indicate whether their paper is a short paper to
differentiate them from full papers. All submissions must be written in
English. It is planned to have accepted papers published by Springer in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, the LNCS template can be
found at

Authors must submit their papers by the indicated deadline, using the
EasyChair web site (at
Only PDF files will be accepted (a Latex source file will be required for
the final version of the accepted papers). All papers will be refereed.
Accepted papers must be presented at the Workshop. At least one author of
each accepted paper must register to the workshop, by the early date
indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.

It is expected that extended and revised version of the best papers from
the workshop will be considered for international journal special issues.
