International Workshop on AI for Privacy and Security
The Hague, Holland, 30/08/2016

Research in security and privacy is nowadays one of the hottest topics in computer science. This is because these topics are of capital importance to the development of a sustainable, resilient and prosperous cyber world. This includes protecting crucial assets ranging from Critical Infrastructures to individual's Personal Information, and it spans domains like Cloud computing, Social Computing, Electronic Commerce and many more. Approaches that are intelligent and self-adaptable are required to deal with the complexities of effectively protecting these crucial assets in all these domains. This is where research from the AI community can make a difference in security and privacy. Indeed, these two areas are increasingly receiving more and more attention from the AI community.
