*1st Interdisciplinary Workshop on Privacy and Trust (iPAT) 
*to be held in conjunction with the 13th International Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security
(ARES 2018 –
August 27 – August 30, 2018, Hamburg, Germany

Mobile information and communication technology has become virtually
ubiquitous due to the proliferation of smartphones and tablet computers;
large sections of the society use it to their advantage. However, this
convenience comes along with an increasing collection and assessment of
the users’ personal data. For example, personal data are provided
voluntarily to the smartphone or application developers when users
actively enter it to customize or simply use a service (e.g.,
navigation). Yet beyond that, most smartphones and applications are able
to gather data even without the user’s help by using built-in sensors,
interpreting phone usage behavior or reading stored data.

Research has shown that most users are often unaware of this increasing
infringement of their privacy. Yet there is a group of users that
expresses concerns about the collection of their personal data. These
users might be highly motivated to protect their data, but lack the
ability and technical expertise to do so. In order to support both user
groups in protecting their private data, an interdisciplinary approach
is needed to develop privacy enhancing technologies that address not
only technical aspect, but also aspects related to usability,
psychology, economy, sociology, philosophy, and law.

This interdisciplinary workshop thus seeks submissions from a wide range
of disciplines (computer science, usability, law, economics, psychology,
sociology, philosophy, ethics, …) that cover the various aspects of
privacy and trust.
