The 15th Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS 2015)
June 30-July 2, 2015

*** Early registration (and hotel block) deadline: June 11, 2015 ***

As the amount and the sensitivity of information disseminated in the online world grow, so do related privacy concerns. Extensive surveillance and massive tracking of users on the Web are only some of today’s threats to individual privacy. In the big data era, information increasingly equals power and money, and organizations are thus motivated to collect and retain large quantities of personal and, increasingly, contextual information.

The Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) aims to advance the state of the art and foster a worldwide community of researchers and practitioners to discuss innovation and new perspectives. It brings together privacy experts from around the world to discuss recent advances and new perspectives. PETS announces novel research efforts toward designing and building systems for privacy and anonymity protection as well as analyzing challenges and threats.

The full program for the event can be found at http://petsymposium.org/2015/program.php:
it includes 23 accepted papers, panels and a keynote talk (Jonathan Katz, Professor, University of Maryland - "Secure computation: Where do we go from here?").

Additionally, PETS will feature a one-day workshop on Hot Topics in Privacy Enhancing Technologies (HotPETs 2015). The ambition of the workshop is to foster new ideas, spirited debates, as well as controversial perspectives on privacy (and lack thereof). The program is available at http://petsymposium.org/2015/hotpets.php and includes 9 accepted papers and a keynote talk (TBA).
