  • PEPR '22: 2022 USENIX Conference on Privacy Engineering Practice and Respect
    Submissions due: March 10, 2022 - 11:59 pm

    The 2022 Conference on Privacy Engineering Practice and Respect (PEPR '22) is a single-track conference focused on designing and building products and systems with privacy and respect for both their users and the societies in which they operate. Our goal is to improve the state of the art and practice of designing for privacy and respect and to foster a deeply knowledgeable community of both privacy practitioners and researchers who collaborate toward that goal.

    We view diversity as a key enabler of this goal. Effectively designing for privacy and respect is a challenge in and of itself; attempting this without a range of perspectives is harder still. Thus, we encourage and welcome participation from all employment sectors, racial and ethnic backgrounds, nationalities, genders, disability statuses, ages, and all those other differences which make us richer as humanity.

    PEPR '22 is committed to fostering a respectful and collaborative environment.
