#####################################################################

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 2009 Workshop, held as all previous editions in
conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the eighth in a yearly
forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today's
electronic society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
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:

- anonymity, pseudonymity, and unlinkability
- data correlation and leakage attacks
- electronic communication privacy
- economics of privacy
- information dissemination control
- personally identifiable information
- privacy in health care and public administration
- privacy and confidentiality management
- privacy-aware access control
- privacy in the digital business
- privacy enhancing technologies
- privacy policies
- privacy and anonymity on the Web
- privacy in the electronic records
- privacy and human rights
- privacy threats
- privacy and virtual identity
- privacy policy enforcement
- privacy and data mining
- privacy in outsourced scenarios
- privacy vs. security
- public records and personal privacy
- user profiling
- wireless privacy



*Paper submissions*

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings.

Submissions should be at most 10 pages in the ACM double-column
format, excluding well-marked appendices, and at most 14 pages
total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and
so the paper should be intelligible without them.

Submissions are not required to be anonymized. Authors of 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
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wpes09. Authors will be
requested to upload the file of their 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 June 12, 2009 to be
considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to
authors by August 8, 2009. The camera ready must be prepared by August
25, 2009 (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 registered by the early-bird
registration deadline.
