The 2nd Workshop on Privacy and Security in Pervasive and Ambient Intelligence Environments
 
CALL FOR PAPERS
=======================================
PETRA 2010 (www.petrae.org)
June 23-25, Samos, Greece
=======================================

Conference Theme

Recent advances in pervasive computing and ambient intelligence environments push forward a vision where technology is integrated into everyday objects with the intent of improving the quality of life and making human interactions with surrounding "cyberphysical" systems simpler and seamless. Such computing environments, however, bring new challenges in privacy and security: as they become aware of and store human activities for future use, there are important consequences on privacy and security that arise from great amounts of personal data being collected and shared wirelessly. An understanding of privacy and security in this context is therefore critical. Ensuring the security and privacy of users' data is a prerequisite to creating public trust for pervasive and ambient intelligence environments and is, therefore, necessary to design and implement them with specific safeguards that also protect against unauthorized collected data re-use.

This workshop will consider an array of privacy enhancing and security tools and methods necessary in pervasive computing environments where there are wireless devices with limited processing power, bandwidth, throughput, memory etc. that make it harder to implement resource-demanding tools and protocols for privacy protection. Additionally, topics on legal support for widespread use of privacy-enhancing technologies will be considered.
=======================================

Topics

Topics and areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Privacy, security and safety in the design of pervasive and ambient intelligence environments
  • Risk analysis
  • Ethical issues of Ambient Intelligence
  • Ethical guidelines for the design of pervasive and ambient intelligence environments
  • User and/or usability/user experience studies related to the design of pervasive and ambient intelligence environments
  • Policies and practices for access, authentication, authorization and auditing for health information systems in order to protect the privacy and security of electronic health information.
  • Policies for sharing / exchange of users' sensitive information in pervasive assistive environments
  • Legislation issues related to handling of protected health information in pervasive e-health and assistive environments
  • Secure data access in pervasive assistive environments
  • PKI to support pervasive environments
  • Encryption, cryptographic techniques to ensure privacy and security in pervasive environments
  • Case studies in respect to privacy and security in pervasive environments
  • Developing secure e-health and assistive infrastructures
