More information about the workshop:

In recent years, the collection and analysis of user data over the Internet has 
experienced a surge. Online services and social networking sites have 
facilitated and encouraged the online disclosure of a wide array of personal 
information, while webtracking platforms have enabled the consolidation of user 
data from disperse sources. The reach of these services has been significantly 
extended by the integration of mobile devices with the cloud. Companies 
increasingly view data analytics as an integral part of their operations, and 
there is an increased need of new means of monetizing data beyond advertising. 
In parallel, regulatory bodies, consumer advocacy groups as well as Internet 
companies themselves have struggled to find a balance between the financial 
benefits of user data monetization and the privacy concerns that it raises.

Motivated by these developments, this workshop aims at studying economic aspects 
of information sharing from several different aspects, including online data 
markets, targeted advertising, user incentive mechanisms, and privacy-aware 
mechanism design. It will cover topics on:

- Mechanism design and auctions
- Economics of information
- Privacy and pricing challenges in the digital economy
- Economic models of privacy-preserving systems
- Regulatory frameworks in the digital economy
- Online advertising and Matching markets
- Data Marketplaces

Sincerely,
Nadia Fawaz, Ashish Goel, Stratis Ioannidis, and S. Muthukrishnan
