Call for Nominations - 2006 PET AWARD

You are invited to submit nominations to the 2006 PET Award.

The PET Award is presented annually to researchers who have made an outstanding contribution to the theory, design, implementation, or deployment of privacy enhancing technology. It is awarded at the annual Privacy Enhancing Technologies Workshop (PET). The PET Award carries a prize of 3000 Euros thanks to the generous support of Microsoft.

Any paper by any author written in the area of privacy enhancing technologies is eligible for nomination. However, the paper must have appeared in a refereed journal, conference, or workshop with published proceedings in the period that goes from the end of the penultimate PET Workshop (the PET workshop prior to the last PET workshop that has already occurred: i.e. June 2004) until April 15th, 2006. The complete Award rules including eligibility requirements can be found at

Anyone can nominate a paper by sending an email message containing the following to

- Paper title
- Author(s)
- Author(s) contact information
- Publication venue
- A nomination statement of no more than 250 words.

All nominations must be submitted by April 15th, 2006. A seven-member Award committee will select one or two winners among the nominations received. Winners must be present at the PET workshop in order to receive the Award. This requirement can be waived only at the discretion of the PET Advisory board.
