Aims and goals

Privacy in statistical databases is about finding tradeoffs to the tension between the increasing societal and economical demand for accurate information and the legal and ethical obligation to protect the privacy of individuals and enterprises which are the source of the statistical data. To put it bluntly, statistical agencies cannot expect to collect accurate information from individual or corporate respondents unless these feel the privacy of their responses is guaranteed; also, recent surveys of web users show that a majority of these are unwilling to provide data to a web site unless they know that privacy protection measures are in place.

"Privacy in Statistical Databases'2004" (PSD'2004) is the final conference of the CASC project ("Computational Aspects of Statistical Confidentiality", IST-2000-25069).

PSD'2004 is in the style of the following conferences: "Statistical Data Protection", held in Lisbon in 1998 and with proceedings published by the Office of Official Publications of the EC, and also the AMRADS project SDC Workshop, held in Luxemburg in 2001 and with proceedings published in Springer LNCS vol. 2316.
