CFP: Seventh International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'21) 

September 7th, 2021 - online 


Deadline of paper submission:      May 15, 2021 (extended)
Notification of acceptance:        June 8, 2021 
Accepted Paper camera ready:       June 22, 2021  (non-archival option available)
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 7th International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'21). 


Ongoing news reports regarding global surveillance programs, massive personal data breaches in corporate databases, and notorious examples of personal tragedies due to privacy violations have intensified societal demands for privacy-friendly systems. In response, current legislative and standardization processes worldwide aim to strengthen individual’s privacy by introducing legal, organizational and technical frameworks that personal data collectors and processors must follow.


However, in practice, these initiatives alone are not enough to guarantee that organizations and software developers will be able to identify and adopt appropriate privacy engineering techniques in their daily practices. It is also difficult to systematically evaluate whether the systems developed comply with legal frameworks, provide necessary technical assurances, and fulfill users’ privacy requirements. It is evident that research is needed in developing techniques and tools that can aid the translation of legal and normative concepts, as well as user expectations into systems requirements. Furthermore, methods that can support organizations and engineers in developing systems that address these requirements are of increasing value.


In this context, privacy engineering research is emerging as an important topic. Engineers are increasingly expected to build and maintain privacy-preserving and data-protection compliant systems in domains such as health, energy, transportation, social computing, law enforcement, public services; based on different infrastructures such as cloud, grid, or mobile. While there is a consensus on the benefits of an engineering approach to privacy, concrete proposals for models, methods, techniques and tools that support engineers and organizations in this endeavor are few and in need of immediate attention.


To cover this gap, the topics of the International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE'21) focus on all the aspects of privacy engineering, ranging from its theoretical foundations, engineering approaches, and support infrastructures, to its practical application in projects of different scale. Specifically, we are seeking the following kinds of papers: 
(1) technical papers that illustrate the engineering or application of a novel formalism, method or other research finding (e.g., a privacy enhancing protocol) with preliminary evaluation; 
(2) experience and practice papers that describe a case study, challenge or lessons learned from in a specific domain; 
(3) early evaluations of methods, tools and other infrastructure that support privacy-related tasks; 
(4) interdisciplinary studies or critical reviews of existing privacy engineering concepts, methods, tools and frameworks; 
(5) vision papers that take a clear position informed by evidence based on a thorough literature review.


IWPE’21 welcomes papers that focus on novel solutions on the recent developments in the general area of privacy engineering. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
-Integrating law and policy compliance into the development process
-Privacy impact assessment during software development
-Privacy risk management models
-Privacy breach recovery Methods
-Technical standards, heuristics and best practices for privacy engineering
-Privacy engineering in technical standards
-Privacy requirements elicitation and analysis methods
-User privacy and data protection requirements
-Management of privacy requirements with other system requirements
-Privacy engineering strategies and design patterns
-Privacy-preserving architectures
-Privacy engineering and databases, services, and the cloud
-Privacy engineering in networks
-Engineering techniques for fairness, transparency, and privacy 
-Engineering privacy in AI and ML
-Privacy engineering in the context of interaction design and usability
-Privacy testing and evaluation methods
-Validation and verification of privacy requirements
-Privacy Engineering and design
-Engineering Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs)
-Integration of PETs into systems
-Models and approaches for the verification of privacy properties
-Tools and formal languages supporting privacy engineering
-Teaching and training privacy engineering
-Adaptations of privacy engineering into specific software development processes
-Pilots and real-world applications
-Evaluation of privacy engineering methods, technologies and tools
-Privacy engineering and accountability
-Privacy engineering and business processes
-Privacy engineering and manageability of data in (large) enterprises
-Organizational, legal, political and economic aspects of privacy engineering
This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; since IWPE'21 is interested in all aspects of privacy engineering. 


We solicit unpublished short position papers (up to 4 pages) and long papers reporting technical, research or industry experience (up to 8 pages) on all dimensions of the privacy engineering domain. Each paper, written in English, must follow IEEE Proceedings format. 
Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the workshop to present the paper. All papers must be submitted via EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwpe21 
IWPE offers the choice of archival and non-archival paper submissions. The non-archival option is offered to avoid precluding future submissions to area-specific venues. Accepted archival submissions will be published in IEEE eXplore, which is indexed by EI Engineering Index, ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI-S), Scopus, etc.
