I will be serving on the Program Committee for the 15th ACM Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES 2016), held in conjunction with the ACM CCS 2016 conference.
The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of electronic privacy, as well as experimental studies of fielded systems. We encourage submissions from other communities such as law and business that present these communities’ perspectives on technological issues. Checkout the full Call for Papers here.
Paper submission deadline: July 27, 2016 @11:59 PM American Samoa time.
Our recent work on detecting automated fake account has been published at Elsevier Journal on Computers and Security. This article has a more comprehensive treatment as compared to the conference paper, and includes supplementary evaluation results on new datasets and the formal analysis of Íntegro: Our account ranking system for aiding OSNs in detecting malicious, automated fake accounts (a.k.a. socialbots).
After a short gig in the industry with Hootsuite Labs, it’s my pleasure to announce that I’ll be moving to Doha to work with the new and growing Cyber Security group at Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI). More details to follow :)
