This publications page presents Privacy Flag publications from the first and second years of the project.

Privacy Flag will disseminate its innovation results and concepts in a range of fora, including scientific and law conferences, workshops, symposia, journals and magazines.   Outputs will include publishing and submitting papers, surveys and book chapters. These actions provide an ideal opportunity for the dissemination of project results and concepts. Through these means, international researchers can be encouraged to contribute to the PF privacy-based knowledge repository and/or to get more extensive information about data privacy, data protection, PF technology and related solutions, such as the Privacy Flag UPRAAM.

Dissemination activities promoted by the Privacy Flag partners will conform to the rules and procedures contained in the Consortium Agreement (CA), which is designed to safeguard the IPRs and confidential information of the participants, whilst preserving each individual participant’s right to exploit their own IPRs and information.

Privacy Flag has already participated in several notable conferences and published a variety of publications.

The following table provides an extensible view of Privacy Flag’s publications under the first and second year.
