The First Workshop on Privacy Preserving Computation in Pervasive  
Computing (PrivaCom 2023), 
in conjunction with the 21st International  
Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications (PerCom 2023)
Atlanta (USA), 
March 13-17, 2023

Securely and privately managing sensitive user data is of tremendous  
importance in fostering and encouraging the development of new types  
of pervasive applications and services that are currently unthinkable.  
However, collected data can be analyzed to reveal sensitive  
information that users would be unwilling to share if they were aware  
of the consequences. It is thus critical to design innovative  
privacy-preserving applications and techniques that are able to  
operate while preserving the confidentiality of sensitive information.  
The design and widespread adoption of novel privacy-preserving data  
analysis techniques would also have significant socio-economic  
implications, since it would allow users' sensitive data to be handled  
explicitly and remain secret throughout all processing phases, instead  
of sidestepping the privacy issue altogether by collecting as little  
information as possible.

The First Workshop on Privacy Preserving Computation in Pervasive  
Computing (PrivaCom 2023) will provide a forum to discuss, exchange  
insights and share experiences among researchers, industry specialists  
and application developers.

Authors are kindly invited to submit original research on both  
theoretical and practical aspects of privacy-preserving computation  
for pervasive computing. We especially welcome submissions that  
present implementation and deployment results. Topics of interest  
include, but are not limited to:

- Privacy-preserving systems and applications
- Privacy sensing and sharing
- Privacy-preserving data aggregation
- Cloud, social media and mobile privacy
- Privacy-aware Big Data analytics
- AI and machine learning for privacy preserving computation
- Privacy mobile crowdsensing
- Human factors in privacy computing
- Secure multi-party computation
- Cryptography for privacy protection of pervasive systems
- Differential privacy
- Functional encryption and privacy-preserving analytics

Accepted papers will be indexed and made available as part of the IEEE  
Xplore Digital Library and will be included in the PerCom 2023  
workshops proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must  
register and attend the workshop to present the paper. There is no  
workshop-only registration. Failure to present the paper at the  
workshop will result in the withdrawal of the paper from the  
Proceedings as well as from IEEE Xplore.
