Data Usage Management on the Web
Workshop at the World Wide Web Conference (WWW 2012),
Lyon, France
April 16th, 2012

The current abundance of digital data requires societal, legal,
economical, and technical approaches to ensure appropriate use of
this vast amount of data. Following two successful events - the
Dagstuhl Seminar on Distributed Usage Control and the W3C Privacy
and Data Usage Control Workshop, the goal of this workshop is to
discuss current developments in usage management and to identify
interesting areas of future research. Data usage control
generalizes access control in order to address what happens to
data in the future and after it has been shared or
accessed. Spanning the domains of privacy, the protection of
intellectual property and compliance, typical requirements
include "delete after thirty days", "delete within five
years", "notify whenever data is given away", and "don't
share". However, in the near future, more general requirements
may include "do not use for employment purposes", "do not use for
tracking", as well as "do not use to harm me in any way". Major
challenges in this field include policies, the relationship
between end user actions and technical events, tracking data
across layers of abstraction as well as logical and physical
systems, policy enforcement, protection of the enforcement
mechanisms, and guarantees.

In the workshop, we will discuss the state of the art in
different approaches including preventive (such as DRM systems)
and forensic (such as accountability) approaches and discuss open
problems. Besides this technical perspective, we want to provide
a forum for discussions on the requirements (societal,
individual, technical), the guarantees that can be provided in
different contexts (e.g., inadvertent vs. malicious abuse of
data) and business models for developing and deploying data usage
management technology.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to
 social or economical approaches to usage control
 provenance generation
 provenance tracking
 usage enforcement
 usage policies
 mis-use detection
 different perspectives to usage management

We solicit short position (upto 5 pages) and long technical (upto
8 pages) papers in ACM SIG Proceedings format on all dimensions
of the above problem domain. All papers must be submitted via
EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dumw2012
