About the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) and Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PoPETS)

The Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) is the premiere venue for research on privacy, data protection, and transparency. Now in its 23rd year, PETS is seeking sponsorship to widen participation and for making research articles freely available through the open access publication, Proceedings on Privacy Enhancing Technologies. In 2023, PETS will be delivered in a hybrid physical and virtual experience in Lausanne, Switzerland on 10–15 July.

Highlights of the programme include over 80 rigorously peer-reviewed publications, presentations of upcoming research and the PET Award for the best paper in the field of Privacy Enhancing Technologies in the past year. The event attracts over 250 attendees, from top academic and industrial research institutes worldwide. The proceedings journal is open access and has extremely high visibility within the wider security & privacy research community.

In past years, PETS has been generously supported by sponsors including Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Intel, National Science Foundation, DeepMind, ZCash, Comcast, Brave, Ford Foundation, and Huawei. Becoming a PETS sponsor is an excellent way to raise awareness of your company’s support for work in privacy enhancing technologies and to contribute to the broader reach of open-access research.
