1st Int. Workshop on Multilateral/Multiuser Privacy in Pervasive Systems
collocated with


The Fourth IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor

Systems (MASS)
Pisa, 8 - 11 October 2007 (http://cnd.iit.cnr.it/mass2007/)


The advent of pervasive systems is going to render the precondition made by

privacy enhancing technologies researched so far inappropriate. More

precisely, in pervasive systems users are no longer interacting with one or

just a few entities. Further, sensing devices will be capable to retrieve

some data without users consent. In addition, different users may require

different settings from a pervasive system at the same time and at the same

place, so interference of users has to be solved somehow. Privacy is a hot

research topic for several years, but research that addresses privacy in

pervasive systems is still in its infancy. The goal of this workshop is to

provide a platform for presenting and discussing novel ideas to preserve

privacy in pervasive systems. We especially want to foster discussion

between scientist form industry and academia working in different fields

such as middleware platforms and low power security solutions.


Relevant TOPICS include, but are not limited to:
- Privacy related management of pervasive systems.
- Security means as key enablers for privacy for computing devices with weak
- Information flow analysis.
- Privacy aware applications.
- Privacy preserving middleware approaches.
- Balancing privacy requirements between users and users and service
- RFIDs and privacy.


Paper Submissions:

The workshop seeks original research contributions of high quality. In

addition to regular papers position papers that discuss hot topics or

future research directions, and work in progress papers presenting

interesting preliminary results are accepted. Full papers should not exceed

6 pages, and work in progress and position papers should be limited to a

maximum of 4 pages. All papers shall be formatted in standard IEEE style,

10pt, two-column pages (style files are available at
http://www.computer.org/portal/site/cscps/index.jsp). All accepted workshop

papers will appear in the MASS 2007 Proceedings published by IEEE. Please

refer to the conference web site for details on formatting and to the

workshop site for submission instructions.

Keynote Speaker(s):

- Caspar Bowden, Chief Privacy Advisor EMEA, Microsoft EMEA Technology
