Title: 1st Interdisciplinary Workshop on Privacy and Trust
Start date: 28 August
Location: Universität Hamburg

Mobile information and communication technology has become virtually ubiquitous due to the proliferation of smartphones and tablet computers; large sections of the society use it to their advantage. However, this convenience comes along with an increasing collection and assessment of the users’ personal data. For example, personal data are provided voluntarily to the smartphone or application developers when users actively enter it to customize or simply use a service (e.g., navigation). Yet beyond that, most smartphones and applications are able to gather data even without the user’s help by using built-in sensors, interpreting phone usage behavior or reading stored data.
