DIMACS Workshop on Recent Work on Differential Privacy across Computer Science

October 24 - 26, 2012
DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University

Aaron Roth, University of Pennsylvania, aaroth at cis.upenn.edu
Adam Smith, Pennsylvania State University, asmith at cse.psu.edu
Presented under the auspices of the DIMACS Special Focus on Information Sharing and Dynamic Data Analysis and the DIMACS Special Focus on Cybersecurity.
Workshop Announcement

The last few years have seen an explosion of results concerning differential privacy across many distinct but overlapping communities:
Theoretical Computer Science, Databases, Programming Languages, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Security, and Cryptography. Each of these different areas has different priorities and techniques, and despite very similar interests, motivations, and choice of problems, it has become difficult to keep track of this large literature across so many different venues. The purpose of this workshop is to bring researchers in differential privacy across all of these communities together under one roof to discuss recent results and synchronize our understanding of the field. The first day of the workshop will include tutorials, representing a broad cross-section of research across fields. The remaining days will be devoted to talks on the exciting recent results in differential privacy across communities, discussion and formation of interesting open problems, and directions for potential inter-community collaborations.
