Conference: Privacy in Statistical Databases 2006

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Rome, Italy, Dec. 13-15, 2006. Privacy in statistical databases is about finding tradeoffs to the tension between the increasing societal and economical demand for accurate information and the legal and ethical obligation to protect the privacy of individuals and enterprises which are the source of the statistical data. To put it bluntly, statistical agencies cannot expect to collect accurate information from individual or corporate respondents unless these feel the privacy of their responses is guaranteed; also, recent surveys of web users show that a majority of these are unwilling to provide data to a web site unless they know that privacy protection measures are in place. "Privacy in Statistical Databases'2006" (PSD'2006) is the main conference of the CENEX-SDC project funded by Eurostat and will be used to raise the awareness of SDC in Europe and beyond. PSD'2006 is regarded as a successor of PSD'2004, the the final conference of the CASC project (IST-2000-25069), held in Barcelona on June 9-11, 2004 and with proceedings published in Springer LNCS vol. 3050. Those two PSD conferences follow a tradition of high-quality technical conferences on SDC which started with "Statistical Data Protection-SDP'98", held in Lisbon in 1998 and with proceedings published by OPOCE, and continued with the AMRADS project SDC Workshop, held in Luxemburg in 2001 and with proceedings published in Springer LNCS vol. 2316.

Like the aforementioned preceding conferences, PSD'2006 originates at the EU, but wishes to stay a worldwide event in SDC. Thus, contributions and attendees from overseas are welcome.
