The 5th International Symposium on Privacy Computing (PriCom 2019) is the next event in a series of highly successful international symposiums on privacy computing, previously held in Boppard, Germany (2018); Melbourne, Australia (2017); Qingdao, China (2016); Fuzhou, China (2015).
While more and more data including personal information is being hosted online such as cloud infrastructure, privacy leakage is becoming one of most challenging concerns in information collection, sharing or analysis. In practice, different temporal, spatial or application cases often demand different privacy protection solutions. Accordingly, most of traditional approaches are case by case or based on a specific application circumstance. It is on demand for a systematic and quantized privacy characterization towards systematic computing model describing the relationships between protection level, profit and loss as well as the complexity of integrated privacy protection models because real-world applications with privacy are changing across time, space and different domains. This international symposium focuses on an evolving pathway - from privacy protection to privacy computing, by serving as an international premier forum for engineers and scientists in academia, industry, and government to address the resulting profound challenges and to present and discuss their new ideas, research results, applications and experience on all aspects of privacy computing.
