Workshop on Identifiability: Policy and Practical Solutions for Anonymization and Pseudonymization. Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) and the Free University of Brussels announce "de-identification of personal data". This is the conference we discussed earlier (see below). Abstracts are due August 1, 2016, with full papers (2500-3500 words) to follow on October 1, 2016. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special symposium of International Data Privacy Law, a law journal published by Oxford University Press. In addition, authors will be invited to present at a workshop titled Identifiability: Policy and Practical Solutions for Anonymization and Pseudonymization in Brussels on November 8. https://fpf.org/2016/06/13/advancing-knowledge-regarding-practical-solutions-de-identification-personal-data-call-papers/ and https://fpf.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/FPF_BrusselsPrivSym_R4.pdf Summary of the Call for Papers The Brussels Privacy Symposium, which is a joint program of the Brussels Privacy Hub of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Free University of Brussels or VUB) and the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) is hosting an academic workshop on Identifiability: Policy and Practical Solutions for Anonymization and Pseudonymization. De-identification-the process of modifying personal data to ensure that data subjects are no longer identifiable-is one of the primary measures that organizations use to protect privacy. Over the past few years, however, computer scientists and mathematicians have demonstrated that de-identification is not foolproof. At the same time, organizations around the world necessarily continue to rely on a wide range of technical, administrative and legal measures to reduce data identifiability. This call seeks papers on technical, policy and ethical aspects of the de-identification debate. Authors from multiple disciplines including law, computer science, statistics, engineering, social science, ethics and business are invited to submit papers for presentation at a full-day program to take place in Someplace, Brussels on November 8, 2016. An academic advisory board will choose papers for presentation at the workshop. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special symposium of International Data Privacy Law, a law journal published by Oxford University Press (subject to the journal's normal editorial procedures) Submissions must be 2,500 to 3,500 words with minimal footnotes and in a readable style accessible to a wide academic audience. Abstracts must be submitted no later than August 1, 2016, at 11:59 PM ET, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Papers must be submitted no later than October 1, 2016, at 11:59 PM ET, to email@example.com. Publication decisions and workshop invitations will be sent in October.
