INTRODUCTION:  There has been a significant increase in the use of location information for the provision of ubiquitous and mobile services.

Location is an extremely valuable piece of information for both service providers and users. Service providers collect and store location mainly to be able to offer context-dependent services. However, positional data  can help to understand proximity relations as well as to evince high-level contextual information like, e.g., whether users are at work or in vacation, whether they are hanging out with friends or with family members. Coupled with subsidiary information available in the Internet (e.g., local news, current weather conditions) positional information can contribute to the automatic composition of highly detailed logs and behavioural profiles.

Users usually accept to share their location information at the condition to be better served or to be helped in coping with the complexity of the digital world and assuming the information is only used in the relevant context. However, the use of location information raises many issues that are not easily solved. How to promote and support the development of location–based services whilst, in the same time, protecting users from the abuses that may emerge from the collection, the storage, and the management of positional data is one of the critical challenges for the today’s computer science and information assurance community.

GOAL: This workshop offers scientists and engineers active in the areas of location and privacy assurance, the opportunity to discuss the state of the art, to identify open and emerging problems, to share research experiences, and to propose future research directions.
