Guaranteeing the privacy of users without compromising on the type of analysis and inferences that can be carried out is instrumental to achieving the vision of pervasive computing. In most real world scenarios, collected data can be analyzed to reveal sensitive information that users would be unwilling to share if they were aware of the consequences. It is thus critical to design innovative privacy-preserving techniques that are able to operate while preserving the confidentiality of sensitive information. At the same time, considering that users can often be selfish or malicious, keeping track of users and sensors which offer high quality data is unavoidable to improve the quality of information (QoI) obtained, but this is naturally very complex without undermining users' privacy.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of privacy-preserving data analysis and contributing to the advancement of the field of truly private pervasive computing. Privacy-preserving techniques offer countless opportunities, but also pose major challenges from a computational point of view, since operations performed on encrypted data are often computationally costly. The First Workshop on Privacy Preserving Computation in Pervasive Computing (PrivaCom 2023) will provide a forum to discuss, exchange insights and share experiences among researchers, industry specialists and application developers.
