Call for Talks: HotPETs 2018
HotPETS is calling for engaging and informative 10-15 minute talks on hot topics in privacy enhancing technologies (PETs), with each talk to be followed by a 5-10 minute question period. The nature of HotPETs' discussion-oriented format is especially suited to works in progress and new ideas that have not yet been fully formed.
Last year there was an interesting discussion about whether a separate Tor network should be set up for safer research and another discussion around I2P. What idea, experience, lessons, or theories would you like to talk through?
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- PET use or deployment with at-risk users
- Anonymous communications and publishing systems
- Censorship resistance
- Location privacy
- Online surveillance
- Privacy and identity management
- Privacy-enhanced access control and authentication
- Privacy in social networks
- Public policy regulating the use and development of PETs
- Usability of PETs
Who should submit
Submissions are open and welcome from activists, artists, developers, journalists, lawyers, public servants, researchers, scholars, and any others who can give a compelling, novel talk about privacy and privacy-enhancing technologies. You don't have to be someone who writes full research papers. PETS and HotPETS attract world-renowned experts on the research, development, and practice of PETs. If you are excited to give a talk to such a group, and you think they would be excited to hear it, then you should submit.
Submission Deadline: May 10, 2018
