After assessment of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the ESORICS 2020 Organizing Committee has made the decision to move the conference and all associated workshops to an online format. Arrangements for the virtual format are being made and we will post updates as they are announced. This new format will not affect our proceedings, which will be published as Springer LNCS proceedings.


DPM is an annual international workshop covering research in data privacy management. Organizations are increasingly concerned about the privacy of information that they manage (as witnessed, for example, by lawsuits filed against organizations for violating the privacy of customer's data). Thus, the management of privacy-sensitive information is very critical and important for every organization.

This poses several challenging problems, such as how to translate the high-level business goals into system-level privacy policies, administration of privacy-sensitive data, privacy preserving data integration and engineering, privacy preserving access control mechanisms, information-oriented security, and query execution on privacy-sensitive data for partial answers. Starting from these observations, the aim of DPM is to discuss and exchange ideas related to data privacy management. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in privacy, security, trustworthy data systems and related areas to submit their original papers in this workshop. Submissions by PhD students as well as controversial ideas are encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Privacy Information Management
- Privacy Policy-based Infrastructures and Architectures
- Privacy-oriented Access Control Languages and Models
- Privacy in Trust Management
