As a satellite event of the ESORICS symposium, DPM will be organised
as a hybrid workshop: digitally with remote participation and talks
and physically with presence in Darmstadt. The health and safety of
the symposium participants is our number one priority hence the
digital part may be increased depending on the development of
COVID-19. This new format will not affect our proceedings, which will
be published as Springer LNCS proceedings.


DPM is an annual international workshop covering research in data
privacy management. Organizations are increasingly concerned
about the privacy of information that they manage (as witnessed,
for example, by lawsuits filed against organizations for
violating the privacy of customer’s data). Thus, the management
of privacy-sensitive information is 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-preserving data
integration and engineering, privacy-preserving access control
mechanisms, information-oriented security, and query execution on
privacy-sensitive data for partial answers. Starting from these
observations, the aim of DPM is to discuss and exchange ideas related
to data privacy 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.
Submissions by Ph.D. students as well as controversial ideas are
encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

– Privacy Information Management
– Privacy Policy-based Infrastructures and Architectures
– Privacy-oriented Access Control Languages and Models
– Privacy in Trust Management
– Privacy in Cryptocurrencies
– Privacy Data Integration
– Privacy Risk Assessment and Assurance
– Privacy Services
– Privacy Policy Analysis
– Data Protection Regulations in Practice
– Cryptographic Protocols for Privacy
– Query Execution over Privacy Sensitive Data
– Privacy-Preserving Data Mining
– Privacy for Integrity-based Computing
– Privacy Monitoring and Auditing
– Privacy in Social Networks
– Privacy in Ambient Intelligence (AmI) Applications
– Individual Privacy vs. Corporate/National Security
– Privacy in computer networks
– Privacy and RFIDs
– Privacy and Big Data
– Privacy in sensor networks
– Privacy in the Internet of Things


Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings. Papers can be submitted as Full Papers or
Short Papers. Full papers should be at most 16 pages in the LNCS
format, including the bibliography and well-marked appendices. Short
papers should be at most 8 pages in the LNCS format, including the
bibliography and well-marked appendices. Program Committee members are
not required to read the appendices, so papers should be intelligible
without them.

Authors should indicate whether their paper is a short paper to
differentiate them from full papers. All submissions must be written
in English. It is planned to have accepted papers published by
Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, the
LNCS template can be found at

Authors must submit their papers by the indicated deadline, using the
EasyChair web site (at Only PDF files will
be accepted (a Latex source file will be required for the final
version of the accepted papers). All papers will be refereed. Accepted
papers must be presented at the Workshop. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register to the workshop, by the early date
indicated by the organizers, and present the paper.

The UNESCO Chair in Data Privacy will offer stipends to offset some of
the costs associated with participating in the DPM workshop for
participants coming from transition countries, which we define as
those having GDP per capita less than 20000 international dollars,
according to the World Bank’s list. Priority will be given to authors
and students. Interested participants, please send a mail with your
