This workshop will identify steps WAP & W3C should take to assure that the standards facilitating mobile Web services have the architectural capacity to address the unique privacy issues arising out of mobile access to the Web. Recognizing that a comprehensive approach to privacy for both fixed and mobile Web services requires cooperation among those designing the underlying architecture and standards, W3C and the WAP Forum have agreed to organize this workshop jointly.
Realizing the promise of mobile Web services requires careful attention to privacy issues. For quite some time, the Web community has recognized the requirement to create a platform for privacy-related tools as a fundamental part of Web architecture. Indeed, a key conclusion of the WAP - W3C Workshop on Position Dependent Information Services was that a comprehensive approach to privacy issues in mobile platforms is an "absolute requirement for the system to be used."
With the growth of the Web to include mobile access and service options, it is now necessary to develop a consistent approach to privacy protection that enables both users and service providers to build trust and confidence in user relationships throughout both the wired and wireless Web.
In order to explore the steps needed to build a common, trusted privacy platform, this workshop will examine topics including:
We hope to address these issues with the diverse perspectives of participants from industry, academe, government, and privacy advocacy groups.
A successful workshop will have:
The workshop will produce:
The summary report, papers, and presentations will be publicly available from the workshop web page.
We expect several groups to contribute to the workshop:
The workshop is an open event; however, space is limited and preference will be given to (1) members of W3C and WAP Forum, (2) experts in the field of mobile Web services and, (3) experts, regulators and advocates in the field of privacy protection.
Position papers are the basis for the discussion at the workshop. A position paper is concise statement, around 1 to 5 pages (maximum 2500 words), summarizing:
Position papers will be published on the public web pages of the workshop, so position papers and slides of presentations must be available for public dissemination. Submitting a position paper constitutes an agreement to allow public dissemination together with other workshop materials.
The Program Committee will ask the authors of particularly salient position papers to present their position at the workshop in order to foster discussion. There will also be a poster session during the workshop for papers who are not given presentation slots. The posters will also be available on the web site.
It is required that every member or organization represented at the workshop submit a position paper. Position papers should be submitted via email to the paper collection mailing list email@example.com no later than Monday 6 November 2000. Allowed formats are HTML and ASCII. Papers in Postscript, Word or other proprietary formats will be returned, with a request for correct formatting. Good examples of position papers can be seen in the XML Signature workshop or the QL'98 workshop.
