Ares 2018 - 1st Interdisciplinary Workshop on Privacy and Trust (Hamburg)


Für den Workshop "1st Interdisciplinary Workshop on Privacy and Trust” der Ares Konferenz 2018, die zwischen dem 27. bis zum 30. August 2018 in Hamburg stattfindet, können von nun an Beiträge im Rahmen des Call for Papers eingereicht werden.


August 27 – August 30, 2018, Hamburg, Germany

Mobile information and communication technology has become virtually ubiquitous due to the proliferation of smartphones and tablet computers; large sections of the society use it to their advantage. However, this convenience comes along with an increasing collection and assessment of the users’ personal data. For example, personal data are provided voluntarily to the smartphone or application developers when users actively enter it to customize or simply use a service (e.g., navigation). Yet beyond that, most smartphones and applications are able to gather data even without the user’s help by using built-in sensors, interpreting phone usage behavior or reading stored data.

Research has shown that most users are often unaware of this increasing infringement of their privacy. Yet there is a group of users that expresses concerns about the collection of their personal data. These users might be highly motivated to protect their data, but lack the ability and technical expertise to do so. In order to support both user groups in protecting their private data, an interdisciplinary approach is needed to develop privacy enhancing technologies that address not only technical aspect, but also aspects related to usability, psychology, economy, sociology, philosophy, and law.

This interdisciplinary workshop thus seeks submissions from a wide range of disciplines (computer science, usability, law, economics, psychology, sociology, philosophy, ethics, …) that cover the various aspects of privacy and trust.
