PETS 2016
16th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium
Darmstadt, Germany
Event dates: July 19 - July 22, 2016

The annual Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) brings
together privacy experts from around the world to discuss recent
advances and new perspectives on research in privacy technologies.

New model as of PETS 2015: Papers undergo a journal-style reviewing
process and accepted papers are published in the journal Proceedings on
Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETs). PoPETs, a scholarly, open
access journal for timely research papers on privacy, has been
established as a way to improve reviewing and publication quality while
retaining the highly successful PETS community event. Authors can submit
papers to PoPETs four times a year, every three months on a predictable
schedule. Authors are notified of the decisions about two months after
submission. In addition to accept and reject decisions, papers may be
provided with =E2=80=98major revision=E2=80=99 decisions, in which case aut=
hors are
invited to revise and resubmit their article to one of the following two
submission deadlines.

NEW as of PETS 2016: PETS 2016 also solicits submissions for
Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers. These are papers that
critically review, evaluate, and contextualize work in areas for which a
body of prior literature exists, and whose contribution lies in
systematizing the existing knowledge in that area.

Authors are encouraged to view our FAQ about the submission process.
