I’ve joined the PETS 2017 TPC. The Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium is the premier venue for novel research on the theoretical and practical aspects of privacy technologies. Please submit your work!
As of 2015, PETS has moved to an open-access journal/conference hybrid model. Articles are submitted for review to an issue of the PoPETs open-access journal, and accepted articles are made freely available online by De Gruyter: http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/popets. Since this change, we have seen an increase in the number and diversity of submissions. We believe that the major revisions model has also led to an increase in quality of the accepted publications.
The PETS event consists of presentations of articles accepted to PoPETs, as well as keynotes, associated workshops such as HotPETs, and a range of social activities.
