Welcome to the website of the Workshop on Privacy-Enhanced Personalization (PEP'06)!

Personalizing people's interaction with computer systems entails gathering considerable amounts of data about them. As numerous recent surveys have consistently demonstrated, computer users are very concerned about their privacy. Moreover, the collection of personal data is also subject to legal regulations in many countries and states. Both user concerns and privacy regulations impact frequently-used personalization methods. This workshop will explore the potential of research on "privacy-enhanced personalization," which aims at reconciling the goals and methods of user modeling and personalization with privacy constraints imposed by individual preferences, conventions and laws.

The workshop is intended for researchers and practitioners in the field of personalization systems and in the area of privacy and security, and specifically for people who are working at the intersection of both. The workshop participants will look at Privacy-Enhanced Personalization from an interdisciplinary perspective, including the areas of Human-Computer Interaction, Management Information Systems, and Economics. Participation from industry is strongly encouraged since the results will have direct implications on existing websites.
