PiCSoC 2016: Workshop on Privacy in Collaborative & Social Computing
Co-located with 2nd IEEE International Conference on Collaboration and Internet Computing (CIC 2016)
Oct. 31, 2016
Pittsburgh, PA, USA
http://www.cs.albany.edu/ALPS/picsoc2016/

*** Extended Deadline: Jul. 30, 2016 ***
====================================================================
Collaboration technologies enable teams of humans or machines (or a combination of both) to cooperate and provide new services or improve their performance. Furthermore, social computing facilitates collective action and social interaction. While such collaboration and interaction enables many diverse opportunities, it also raises concerns about user privacy.
We are interested in papers that address various privacy challenges in collaborative and social computing including (but not limited to):
- Access control techniques for preserving user privacy
- Adversary models for privacy
- Anonymity and pseudonymity
- Data anonymization techniques
- Detecting privacy violations
- Privacy and ethical implications
- Privacy-preserving data mining
- Privacy-preserving data publishing
- Scalable privacy technologies
- Understanding privacy policies
- Usability of privacy technologies

The collaborative and social computing application areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Collaborative authoring and tagging systems
- Collaborative learning systems
- Collaborative sensor networks
- Crowdsourcing systems
- Human computation
- Internet of Things
- Online social networks
- Recommender systems
- Vehicular networks

Important Dates:
- Paper Submission Deadline: Jul. 30, 2016 (extended)
- Notification of Acceptance: Aug. 30, 2016

Program Co-Chairs:
Elena Ferrari, University of Insubria, Italy
Barbara Carminati, University of Insubria, Italy
Amir Masoumzadeh, SUNY Albany, USA

Paper Submission:
We invite original research papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Both short and full-length papers will be considered.
