Welcome to APPS 2020

APPS 2020 is the 2nd International Workshop on Adaptive and Personalized Privacy and Security which will be held ONLINE in conjunction with ACM UMAP 2020 - User Modelling, Adaptation and Personalization, 18th July, 2020, starting at 14:00 (UTC 0).

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, APPS 2020 goes virtual! The accepted papers will be published and available as planned in the ACM Digital Library.

APPS 2020 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on diverse topics related to understanding and improving the usability of privacy and security software and systems, by applying user modeling, adaptation and personalization principles.

Our special focus in 2020 will be on healthcare systems, more specifically on ensuring security and privacy of medical data in smart patient-centric healthcare systems.

The workshop will address the following objectives:

  • increase our understanding and knowledge on supporting usable privacy and security interaction design through novel user modeling mechanisms and adaptive user interfaces;
  • discuss methods and techniques for understanding user attitudes and perceptions towards privacy and security issues in various application areas;
  • identify human-centered models for the design, development and evaluation of adaptive and personalized privacy and security systems;
  • discuss methods for evaluating the impact and added value of adaptation and personalization in privacy and security systems.
