International Workshop on Privacy Data Management

April 9, 2005, National Center of Sciences, Tokyo, Japan

In conjunction with
21st International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2005)


The organizations are increasingly concerned about the privacy of information that they manage (several people have filed lawsuits against organizations violating the privacy of customers data). Thus, the management of privacy sensitive information is a very critical and important for every organization. This poses several challenging problems, such as how to translate the high-level business goals into system-level privacy policies, administration of privacy sensitive data, privacy data integration and engineering, privacy access control mechanism, information-oriented security, query execution on privacy sensitive data for partial answers.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss and exchange the ideas related to privacy data management. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in privacy, security, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their original papers in this workshop. The main topics, but not limited to, include:
