The notion of differential privacy has provided a firm foundation for the formal study of privacy guarantees. Building on this foundation, this workshop will explore the frontiers of how privacy guarantees (and harms from privacy losses) can be measured, quantified, and combined. Talks will introduce alternative privacy notions and will probe key properties of these definitions, such as composition and concentration properties. The workshop will also formally consider privacy guarantees in strategic contexts—e.g., how can and should one set incentives and design mechanisms in settings where privacy is of concern? How might equilibrium behaviors affect the privacy properties of systems with multiple selfish actors? This workshop will naturally touch on recent developments at the intersection of privacy, economics, and game theory.

Further details about this workshop will be posted in due course. Enquiries may be sent to the organizers workshop-privacy3 [at] lists [dot] simons [dot] berkeley [dot] edu (at this address).
