Message-ID: <CAK1ez=JO6+2T08VQ6fXHutf_5tOeXqGaCKWT68EbbBWCSDZ68g@mail.gmail.com>
To: semantic-web@w3.org, public-lod@w3.org
The PrivOn workshop is looking for late breaking ideas and research to
stimulate discussion on Privacy in the context of the Semantic Web.

Similar to poster and demonstration papers, late-breaking research papers
contain original and unpublished accounts of innovative research ideas,
research projects and preliminary results relating to Privacy and the
Semantic Web (society, policy and technology).

Papers must be 4-6 pages long and must conform to the LNCS Proceedings
format. Submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee and a limited
number of those will be selected for presentation and publication in the
workshop proceedings.

****July 25, 2015 - Late-breaking research paper deadline
****August 8, 2015 - Late-breaking research paper author notifications

We would greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word by distributing
the call to your lists.

Best Regards,
Stefan Decker, Mathieu D’Aquin, Christopher Brewster, Sabrina Kirrane

Workshop Details

3rd International Workshop on Society, Privacy and the Semantic Web -
Policy and Technology(PrivOn 2015)
at the 14th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC)
October 12, 2015, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, United States

Bruce Schneier’s article “The Internet is a surveillance state” summarised
the state of Internet privacy as “Welcome to an Internet without privacy,
and we've ended up here with hardly a fight”. Later, Snowden shocked the
world by revealing that the US National Security Agency (NSA) were tracking
online communication in a large scale surveillance programme known as
PRISM. This was quickly followed by revelations that other countries were
running similar covert operations.

Last year, on the 25th anniversary of the Web, Tim Berners-Lee called on
the world to take a stand against surveillance on the Web. He suggested to
create a global digital bill of rights similar to the Magna Carta that can
be used to safeguard privacy, limit censorship and protect against
fragmentation of the Web.

With this workshop we aim at raising awareness that the technologies the
community are working on have global societal consequences. Vice versa, our
research can be guided by a Magna Carta for the Web. This year’s workshop
aims to build on previous workshops, by capturing the intersection between
society, policy and technology, by contributing to the foundations of a
global digital bill of rights and investigating how we can technologically
support these foundations.

Topics Of Interest

The topics of this workshop are different from previous workshops and
events which were usually focused on technology and did not take into
consideration societal events and trends. This workshop aims to capture the
intersection between society, policy and technology, for example by
contributing to the foundations of a global digital "bill of rights"
similar to the Magna Carta as suggested by Tim Berners-Lee. Therefore we
have structured the topics in three main areas as follows:

Society and privacy
-Case studies: what are the societal privacy implications of semantic
-What is the impact of semantic technologies on privacy in specific domains?
-What are appropriate societal conventions to protect privacy?
-What are desirable privacy situations?
-When do we want to control information flow?
-Privacy awareness in social communities
-What should a “Magna Carta for Data” look like?

Legal and policy perspective of privacy
-Managing personal information disclosure
-What laws support privacy management and enforcement?
-What new legislation might be necessary?
-Privacy legislation compliance
-How to influence policy making?
-How to synchronise policies of different legal domains?
-Personal data and the role of the data controller/processor

Technology perspective
-How can societal conventions be supported by technologies?
-Techniques for anonymity, pseudonymity and unlinkability
-Privacy implications of data integration and data linking
-Protecting against pattern/behaviour discovery and community mining
-Protecting against identity theft and data falsification
-Non-repudiation and digital signatures
-Usage control and accountability
-Data provenance and trustworthiness of knowledge sources

Format and Submission Procedure

Contributions to the workshop can be made in terms of papers and reports as
well as position papers addressing different issues of the stated topics of
interest. Research papers and reports (up to 16 pages) and position papers
(up to 8 pages), must adhere to the LNCS Style. Papers must be submitted in
PDF format through the workshop submission site at:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=privon2015. Papers will be
reviewed by the program committee and a limited number will be selected for
presentation at the workshop. As per previous workshops we aim to publish
the proceedings of the workshop online at CEUR-WS.
