Workshop Announcement

This is a Workshop within the ICAIL 2009 Conference (12th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Law).

To be held on Monday 8th June.

Goal of the Workshop

The goal of the workshop is to bring together experts on Security, Digital Rights Management (DRM), Semantic Web, Social Networks and related Legal Aspects to discuss how user's privacy is currently protected in Online Social Networks and Collaborative Networks and how current Semantic Web and Digital Rights Management (DRM) techniques could help to this purpose. The impact of legal regulations should not be forgotten.

To this end, this workshop would explore recent advances in all areas of DRM, security, trust and privacy in Social Networks and workshop participants would discuss how DRM and Semantic Web techniques could be applied to govern users' data, providing in this way protection from attacks to user's privacy in Social Networks.
