Privacy in statistical databases is about finding trade-offs to the tension between the increasing societal and economical demand for accurate information and the legal and ethical obligation to protect the privacy of individuals and enterprises which are the respondents providing the statistical data. In the case of statistical databases, the motivation for respondent privacy is one of survival: statistical agencies or survey institutes cannot expect to collect accurate information from individual or corporate respondents unless these feel the privacy of their responses is guaranteed. Beyond respondent privacy, there are two additional privacy dimensions to be considered: privacy for the data owners (organizations owning or gathering the data, who wouldn’t like to share the data they have collected at great expense) and privacy for the users (those who submit queries to the database and would like their analyses to stay private).
“Privacy in Statistical Databases 2014″ (PSD 2014) is a conference sponsored and organized by the UNESCO Chair in Data Privacy, with proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in Computer Science. It purpose is to attract worldwide, high-level research in statistical database privacy.
Like the preceding PSD conferences, PSD 2014 originates in Europe, but wishes to stay a worldwide event in database privacy and SDC. Thus, contributions and attendees from overseas are welcome.
