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 revealed
that the NSA was tracking online communication in a large-scale
surveillance programme. This was followed by revelations that other
countries were running similar covert operations. On the 25th
anniversary of the Web, Tim Berners-Lee called on the world to take a
stand against surveillance and suggested the creation of a global
digital bill of rights.

Since last years workshop privacy continues to make headline news.
Autumn, saw the collapse of the EU-US Safe Harbor Agreement, which
resulted in legal uncertainty regarding transatlantic data exchange and
in December, the new EU Data Protection Regulation was finally
completed, after years of discussion involving parliamentarians,
lobbyists and activists.

This workshop aims to raise awareness that the technologies our
community are working on have global societal consequences and, vice
versa, our research can be guided by social, economic and legal privacy
requirements. This year’s workshop will build on previous workshops, by
investigating the privacy implications of semantic technology and also
how the technology can be used to develop privacy preservation tools.

Topics Of Interest

This workshop aims to capture the intersection between society, policy
and technology, by examining the privacy implications and opportunities
of semantic technologies. We welcome submissions on (but not restricted
to) the following topics:

-Surveillance, tracking and semantic technologies
-What should a “Magna Carta for Data” look like?
-What societal conventions are necessary to protect privacy and how can
they be supported by semantic technologies?
-What are the economic incentives for privacy preserving semantic tools?
-What impact does privacy legislation have on Linked Data and semantic
-Synchronisation of policies from different legal domains
-Semantic tools for monitoring and enforcing privacy and data protection
-Managing personal information disclosure in semantic environments
-Techniques for anonymity, pseudonymity and unlinkability in linked and
semantic data
-Dealing with inference in private, sensitive or confidential data
-Protecting against pattern/behaviour discovery and community mining
-Protecting against identity theft and data falsification
-Encryption together with linked and semantic data
-Digital signatures together with linked and semantic data
-Data transparency and user consent on the Web of Data
-Data provenance and trustworthiness of knowledge sources
-Semantic technology and privacy by design
-Semantic technology and privacy impact assessments
-Privacy challenges arising from Linked Open Data
-Case Studies: Impact of semantic technologies on privacy in specific domain
