William Winsborough Award Ceremony & Keynote Speech

Simone Fischer-Hübner

About the Willian Winsborough Award (source):

The William Winsborough Commemorative Address and Award has been inaugurated to acknowledge the lasting effect that Professor Winsborough had on the field of Computational Trust and Trust Management. The award will be given annually. “The objective of the award is to publicly recognise an individual, not a group or organisation, who has significantly contributed to the development of computational trust and/or trust management, especially achievements with an international perspective. However this particular requirement will not necessarily preclude nominations of those whose main achievements have been made on a national level.”

The keynote speech will be held by Prof. Dr. habil. Simone Fischer-Hübner.

Keynote: Transparency, Privacy and Trust – Technology for Tracking and Controlling my Data Disclosures: Does this work?
Transparency is a basic privacy principle and social trust factor. However, in the age of cloud computing and big data, providing transparency becomes increasingly a challenge. I will discuss privacy requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for providing ex-post transparency and present how the transparency-enhancing tool Data Track can help to technically enforce those principles. Open research challenges that remain from a Human Computer Interaction (HCI) perspective will be discussed as well.
