Call for Papers - PSAI 2008

Workshop on Privacy and Security - Artificial Intelligence (PSAI 2008) Barcelona. Catalonia. Spain


In this workshop, we aim to convene researchers in the areas of  Security, Data Privacy and Artificial Intelligence. We seek to  collect the most recent advances in artificial intelligence  techniques (i.e. neural networks, fuzzy systems, multi-agent  systems, genetic algorithms, image analysis, clustering, etc),  which are applied to the protection of privacy and security.

Individual privacy protection is a hot topic and it must be addressed to guarantee the proper evolution of a modern society based on the Information and Communication Techniques (ICTs). However, security policies could invade individual privacy, especially after the appearance of the new forms of terrorism. These two concepts (i.e. security and privacy) are somehow opposite because, most of the times, security is achieved by means of privacy invasion.

Statistical agencies and the like are collecting large amounts of personal information that has to be protected before its publication. Different forms of evolutionary computation and clustering have been proposed to tackle this problem. Moreover, the protection of critical infrastructures such as airports has invigorated the study of more efficient techniques for pattern recognition, image analysis, etc.

This workshop will consider all the artificial intelligence techniques that are used to address these problems. It will be focused on real applications and theoretical contributions.  The workshop will be held in conjunction with ARES 2008.

*November, 20th 2007* -> Submission Deadline

December, 10th 2007 -> Authors Notification

December, 15th 2007 -> Authors Registration

January, 2nd 2008 -> Proceedings Version

March, 4th - March, 7th 2008 ->Conference


Authors are invited to submit research and application papers following the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page.

Submission papers are classified into 3 categorizes (1) full paper (8 pages), (2) short paper (5 pages), and (3) poster (2 pages) representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.

Contact author must provide the following information at the AReS web site: paper title, authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference.

Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

Proceedings of the ARES conference will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Based on quality and referee reviews, some papers not suitable for acceptance as full paper will be accepted for presentation at ARES in Poster category and will be also included in the IEEE Proceedings. The best papers selected by ARES program committee out of papers accepted for presentation at ARES will be further published in some International journals.

The submission site for ARES paper will be available in the first week of October. If you have the paper ready to submit, please send it via email to ares-conference (at) If you have any difficulty to submit the paper via web interface, please do not hesitate to send them to ares-conference (at)


Chair: Dr. Agusti Solanas

Co-chair: Dr. Antoni Martinez

Why did you join CPSR?

I've been seeking organizations on the Internet that discuss topics of interest to me as well as give me the opportunity to come in contact and network with people near me of the same interests/field.
