Warning: getdate() [function.getdate]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'Europe/Berlin' for 'CEST/2.0/DST' instead in /var/ftp/bonchi/public_html/pinkdd07/inc_html.php on line 179

Given the vast amount of data that is collected by service providers, system administrators, and is available in public information systems, data mining provides an ideal framework to assist in computer security and surveillance-related endeavors. However, the application of data mining to person-specific data raises serious concerns regarding data confidentiality and citizens' privacy rights. The problems are global and many governments are struggling to set national, and international, policies on privacy and security for data mining endeavors. Ensuring privacy and security, as well as establishing trust are essential for the provision of electronic and knowledge-based services in modern e-business, e-commerce, e-government, and e-health environments. Discussion often focuses on ethical and policy aspects of the problem, neglecting technology, and the resolution is usually polarized; e.g. an organization can either 1) share databases of personal information for data mining purposes or 2) it can not.

Fortunately, computer scientists, and data mining researchers in particular, have recognized that technology can be constructed to support flexible solutions to enable data mining goals without sacrificing the privacy and security of the individuals to whom the data corresponds. To inject privacy into security and surveillance data mining projects, it is necessary to understand the goals of the latter. It is the goal of this workshop to cross-fertilize research on privacy, security, and how to resolve trust issues within a data mining framework that addresses technical and social viewpoints. We hope to attract interest from a wide range of data mining subareas, including: web mining, biomedical data mining, spatio-temporal data mining, ubiquitous knowledge discovery, and privacy-preserving data mining. By supporting the development of privacy-aware data mining technology, this workshop will enable a wider social acceptance of a multitude of new services and applications based on the knowledge discovery process.
