PETS 2022

The 22nd Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium
July 11–15, 2022
Sydney, Australia and Online

A note on flooding in NSW: (6th July) You may have heard news of flooding and evacuation, but these only impact the more regional areas of greater NSW. There is no flooding in areas relevant to PETS which includes the city, airport and major suburbs of the city. In essence, it is absolutely and perfectly safe and PETS will be proceeding as planned. While we might not have peak Sunny Sydney to welcome you, we certainly will have some clearer skies than this week.

The annual Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) brings together privacy experts from around the world to discuss recent advances and new perspectives on research in privacy technologies. PETS addresses the design and realization of privacy services for the Internet and other digital systems and communication networks.

The 22nd PETS will be a Hybrid event with a physical gathering held in Sydney, Australia, with a concurrent virtual event, organised by the Macquarie University Cyber Security Hub.
