Our goal is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in a variety of fields (education, employment, healthcare, policy, technologies etc.) to facilitate exchanges and foster future collaborations. It aims at offering a forum where these researchers and practitioners can discuss theoretical as well as practical aspects, open issues, and innovative approaches as well as share the latest advances in the state of the art of personal and social data management, privacy/intimacy and identity construction.
