Call for Participation

Symposium on Applications of Contextual Integrity September 13-14, 2018 at the Center for Information and Technology Policy at Princeton University.

You can find directions information and accomodation options here.

Co-sponsored by Center for Information Technology Policy, Princeton University & Digital Life Initiative, Cornell Tech.

The aim of the symposium is to foster communication among diverse communities of research and practice that have used the theory of contextual integrity as a framework to reason about, design and evaluate, craft regulation for, and generate formal logics for privacy. After the success of a half-day meeting in Fall 2017, we are excited to follow up with a more comprehensive event to foster discussion across a broader spectrum of disciplines. The Symposium will feature a combination of invited and submitted works.


We will accept any of the following submission types:

  1. A 4 page position paper on ongoing or work in progress (References not included in page limit)
  2. An extended abstract (1-2 pages) of published or mature work. In writing your abstract, it would be useful to indicate the literature in which your paper will be situated by including a short “works cited” section at the end. If your topic is entirely novel or interdisciplinary, please indicate that as well. We suggest that the abstract explains the contribution your work makes to the existing literature. If your abstract gets accepted, we provide the option of posting the longer paper version to the symposium website.
  3. A 1 page description of an interesting use case to be discussed the symposium

Note: If you’re interested in attending the symposium without submission, please fill in this form. We will send the confirmation upon review.

Papers should be formatted using the 2018 ACM Master Article Template. For LaTeX users, choose format=sigconf.

Submissions will be will be peer-reviewed by the workshop’s Program Committee and accepted based on the relevance and development of the chosen topic, as well as their potential to contribute to the workshop discussions and goals.

Submissions may include:

  • Empirical studies (qualitative, quantitative, experimental)
  • Legal, philosophical, ethical, and policy analysis
  • System design and/or implementations
  • Combinations of the above

With author’s permission, accepted submissions would be posted on the website but not be considered archival publications.
