Opportunities and Risks in the Era of the Internet of Things
October 30, 2015, Berlin
Usable Security and Privacy Group
Quality and Usability Lab, TU Berlin
We live in the era of the Internet of Things. The devices in our everyday use are increasingly connected, and gather data about our everyday lives. Our lifestyle, our habits, and our future plans are no longer only our personal information written in our calendars and journals, but ever more transmitted between our devices, stored in the cloud, and analysed.
The advantages and opportunities offered by the Internet of Things are immense, including home automation and tracking one’s health with little effort. The same technologies have also given tools for gathering of data that could compromise our privacy: the advertisers can now create highly detailed user profiles of us, and mass-surveillance is easier than ever.
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 third edition of the workshop, we intend to follow the past years’ tradition, providing a forum for networking and stimulating rich discussions. To promote the possibility for this, the workshop includes a social event in the evening of October 30, during which the discussion can continue more informally.
To register for the workshop as a participant, please email us at email@example.com no later than October 9. Sign up for the social event by stating your interest within your registration email. Participation for the dinner involves a fee to partly cover the costs. More information about the payment will be given closer to the event.
To express your interest in giving a talk, we would kindly ask you to send a short abstract (100-300 words) of your planned talk, together with the title of your presentation to us at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 31. In case we cannot fit all the proposed talks in the agenda, we will select presentations based on the topics to guarantee a diverse program for the day.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to human factors in privacy and security in the areas of:
- Privacy in Internet of Things and Ubiquitous Computing
- Privacy and Smart Homes
- Wearable Devices
- Quantified Self
- Smart Cities
- Personal and Public Health Care
- Deadline for abstracts: August 31
- Deadline for registration: October 9
- Workshop: October 30
