1st International Workshop on Internet of Things, Crowdsourcing and Privacy

Collocated with the IEEE AINA Conference
Crans-Montana, Switzerland, March 23-25, 2016

The Internet of Things (IoT) is moving towards pervasiveness and increasing end-user interactions. Beyond the purely technical improvement in the IoT technology, there is a need to better interact with the end-users in order to ensure a high level of acceptance and to leverage on their active use of the IoT. The workshop will explore the potential of new approaches and technologies to research and develop better interactions between end-users and IoT, including crowdsourcing approaches. In parallel, privacy and personal data protection is becoming a critical issue and will be one of the key factors of success for future IoT applications. The workshop will review recent developments in this domain. We encourage contributions describing innovative work on IoT-end-user interaction, including crowdsourcing, crowd-sensing and privacy protection. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • IoT and crowdsourcing applications enabling closer interactions with end-users
  • Crowdsourcing and crowd-sensing technologies
  • Large scale testbeds integration
  • IoT testbeds with end-user interactions
  • IoT Privacy and personal data protection
  • Privacy risk assessment methodologies
  • IoT and end-user interaction: innovative approaches, prospective analysis

We encourage submission of recent developments in the form of presentations as well as submissions reporting on more mature and completed work in the form of papers (up to 6 pages long) which will undergo regular peer review process. For further information, please contact the workshop co-chairs.

PRIVACY FLAG is at the moment one of the six EU projects on privacy innovation. The others are listed below:
VisiOn – Visual Privacy Management in User Centric Open Environments
Operando – Online privacy enforcement, rights assurance & optimization
Panoramix – Privacy and Accountability in Networks via Optimized Randomized Mix-nets
• Types – Towards transparencY and Privacy in the onlinE advertising business
SafeCloud – Secure and Resilient Cloud Architecture, www.safecloud-project.eu

PRIVACY FLAG also shares common interests with EU Projects in areas such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Cities. These are:
Organicity EU project – Co-creating smart cities of the future
• U4IoT – User Engagement for Large Scale Pilots in the Internet of Things. (Project started in 01/01/2017)
• ANASTACIA – Advanced Networked Agents for Security and Trust Assessment in CPS/IOT Architectures (Project started in 01/01/2017)
• CREATE-IoT – Cross Fertilisation Through Alignment, Synchronisation and Exchanges For IoT (Project started in 01/01/2017)
WeLive – A neW concept of public administration based on citizen co-created mobile urban services

PRIVACY FLAG goal is to amplify the European privacy innovation community and promote the community’s position in an international context.
