Special Issue "Statistical Disclosure Control for Microdata"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019.
We invite you to submit your latest research in the area of statistical disclosure control and anonymization of data to this Special Issue, “Statistical Disclosure Control”. Privacy, confidentiality, and anonymization of data have recently received a great deal of attention, caused by the increased sensibility of this topic in politics and society and related new laws in privacy. Research on this topic is in special focus.
We are looking for new and innovative approaches for the anonymization of data with personal information. High-quality papers are solicited to address both theoretical and practical issues of methods in statistical disclosure control. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, re-identification risk measurement, anonymization of data, utility of anonymized data, and methods to create synthetic data. Complex case studies with complex data from health, official statistics, or any other kind of data including personal information are also welcome.
Dr. Matthias Templ
