For some general information on the AAAI Fall Symposium Series, check here: http://www.aaai.org/Symposia/Fall/fall-symposia.php
The purpose of this symposium is to jump-start the creation of a community of researchers interested in the intersection between language technologies and privacy. Our goal is to bring together researchers who work in either language technologies or in privacy but have an interest in both areas, as these two groups will benefit greatly from a forum to interact.
The time is ripe for a discussion of the relationship between language technologies and privacy. Computing applications are increasing their reliance on natural language, with technologies such as online social media, search engines, and spoken dialog systems enabling the collection of large amounts of language data for advertising, text mining, and other purposes. There is also an opportunity for language technologies to help people understand and protect their privacy by simplifying information they must understand (e.g., privacy policies or other legal documents) or helping them to reflect on the content they share (e.g., social media posts).
This symposium will invite original research contributions and position papers on the intersection of privacy and language technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Analysis of privacy policies and related legal documents
Semantics of privacy practices and regulations
Privacy for users of online social media
Language-sourced ontologies and knowledge bases for privacy
Privacy in dialogue systems
Privacy in speech and spoken language processing
User studies of privacy-supportive language technologies
We plan for an interactive mix of oral presentations, roundtable discussions, and a poster session.
Submissions may take the form of:
Long papers (5-8 pages in AAAI format, including references) for oral presentation
Short papers (up to 4 pages in AAAI format, including references) for poster presentation
Submissions should not be anonymized. The review process will be single-blind, with anonymous reviewers. Here is the submission page: https://easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=40115536.K93328ZzdzqvGoIO
Proceedings will appear as a technical report in AAAI’s digital library.
For questions, contact the organizers at plt2016.organizers at gmail.com.
Students who are first-listed authors on their submissions can apply for a limited amount of travel support from the symposium. If you are eligible and wish to apply, please submit a brief statement (PDF format, 500 words or fewer) to plt2016.organizers at gmail.com by the submission date. The statement should contain your name, the title and ID number of your submission, and a description of your research interests and your goals for attending the symposium. The amount of support per student will be determined after acceptance notifications have been made.
