Call for Papers - PETS 2011

11th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS 2011)
Waterloo, ON, Canada
July 27-29, 2011

Privacy and anonymity are increasingly important 
in the online world. Corporations, governments, 
and other organizations are realizing and 
exploiting their power to track users and their 
behavior. Approaches to protecting individuals, 
groups, but also companies and governments, from 
profiling and censorship include 
decentralization, encryption, distributed trust, 
and automated policy disclosure.
The 11th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium 
addresses the design and realization of such 
privacy services for the Internet and other data 
systems and communication networks by bringing 
together anonymity and privacy experts from 
around the world to discuss recent advances and new perspectives.
The symposium seeks submissions from academia and 
industry presenting novel research on all 
theoretical and practical aspects of privacy 
technologies, as well as experimental studies of 
fielded systems. We encourage submissions with 
novel technical contributions from other 
communities such as law, business, and data 
protection authorities, that present their 
perspectives on technological issues. As in the 
past, the proceedings will be published in the 
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science 
series, and will be available at the event.

Suggested topics include but are not restricted to:

Anonymous communications and publishing systems
Attacks on privacy and privacy technologies
Censorship resistance
Data protection technologies
Economics of privacy and PETs
Fielded systems and techniques for enhancing privacy in existing systems
