Mobile Privacy – Challenges, Risks, and Solutions
October 28th 2016, Berlin
Usable Security and Privacy Group
Quality and Usability Lab, TU Berlin
The 4th edition of the privacy workshop, Privacy Berlin 2016, will be held on October 28th. The workshop is a single-track, one-day event concentrating on various themes around usable privacy. This year the special theme of the workshop is mobile privacy.
In the times where almost everyone owns a smartphone, we are constantly reachable and sharing increasing amounts of information through various applications. The mobile devices are generally very personal, even if they are company devices; at the same time they are often not secured, either because of lack of knowledge, lack of interest, or for other reasons. This makes mobile devices very vulnerable, creating potential risks for personal privacy. When the mobile device is used also for work-related tasks, the number of stakeholders whose privacy is potentially at risk also increases.
In this full-day workshop, we aim at gathering together privacy and security experts and practitioners from fields such as technology, psychology, sociology, and legislation. With this fourth edition of the workshop, we intend to follow the past years’ tradition, providing a forum for networking and stimulating rich discussions. To further promote the possibility for this, the workshop also includes a social event in the evening of October 28, during which the discussion can continue more informally.
To register for the workshop as a participant, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 14. Participation in the event is free of charge. Sign up for the social event by stating your interest within your registration email, so we know to book enough seats.
To express your interest in giving a talk, we would kindly ask you to send an abstract (max. 700 words) of your planned talk, together with the title of your presentation to us at email@example.com no later than September 2nd. Based on the proposed abstracts, we will select presentations aiming at guaranteeing a diverse program for the day. The abstracts will be also published on the workshop webpage unless otherwise requested.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to human factors in privacy and security in the areas of:
- Wearable Devices
- Quantified Self
- Digital Location
- Personal and Public Health Care
Deadline for abstracts: September 2
