1st International Workshop on
Privacy in Semantic Technologies (PriSeT 2013)

23rd June, 2013
Banff, Canada
(collocated with K-CAP 2013)


* Paper Submission: 15th April 2011
* Author Notification: 30th April, 2013
* Camera ready copy due: 15th May 2013


In recent years, Web users have seen an exponential growth in the amount of data being generated and exchanged in form of blogs, tweets, social networking and mobile applications. In this respect, Semantic technologies have emerged as a potential candidate for building privacy enhancing solutions for Web users.

On the other hand, recent linked-data initiatives from government, academia and industry are rapidly moving towards making the users’ data available for distributed sharing and linking. However, the main concern is without sufficient privacy safeguards and controls, there is a high risk these linking of data and its exploitation will become a “privacy nightmare” for the Web users. Semantic Web has been redefined in recent years but the privacy enhancing technologies specifically relating to the use of URI, RDF and SPARQL are still lagging behind. Therefore, this workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange and disseminate their work to a wider audience and receive critical feedback on work primarily supporting privacy in and with semantic technologies.


We welcome high-quality papers about recent advancements in (a) how privacy is being supported in the Web of Data, especially through semantic technologies and (b) how Semantic Web principles are being applied in the context of privacy protection of Web users or end-users of software systems in general. We seek application-oriented, as well as more theoretical papers and position papers in the following, non-exhaustive list of topics:

*    Privacy in semantic technologies
*    Use of semantic technologies in privacy protection
*    Privacy implications of knowledge extraction
*    Privacy implications of data integration and data linking
*    Privacy in Big Data
*    Knowledge discovery and privacy
*    Inferring privacy consequences of online activities
*    User and knowledge modelling for privacy
*    Knowledge approaches to privacy requirements
*    Knowledge approaches to privacy assessment
*    Privacy policy modelling and interoperability
*    Modelling of private information propagation
*    Impact of semantic technologies on privacy in specific domains (healthcare, politics, etc.)


We seek short position papers (max. 5 pages) and longer technical papers not exceeding 10 pages. Both types of papers should be formatted according to the ACM format (2 column SIG Conference Proceedings template is available at  http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and should be submitted through EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=priset2013).
