Towards transparency and privacy in the online advertising business

PDDM 2016


Type of disseminating activity: Workshop

Target-profile / audience: Scientific Community (Higher Education, Research), Industry, Civil Society, Policy Makers

Number of attendants: Around 40 throughout the duration of the workshop

Section of the project covered by dissemination: This dissemination activity was related to the project as a whole. In the introduction that was delivered by Tamir Tassa in the beginning of the workshop, the project TYPES was described – the background, motivation, goals, the partners, and a very high level description of the tools and technologies that we develop in that project. We had a short tour of the project website.

Overview of feedback received: We had a very impressive number of around 40 attendees throughout the half-day workshop. Given that there were many other workshops and activities in parallel and that the workshop took place one day before the ICDM conference began, this turnout was most satisfactory. The audience was very interested in the TYPES project and afterwards some of the attendees approached Sara Hajian and Tamir Tassa with questions about the project. It is possible that some new collaborations will emerge thanks to that dissemination activity.

Reason for choosing this particular event to disseminate the project: IEEE International conference of Data Mining (ICDM) is among the top conferences in the area of data mining; the topic of privacy and anti-discrimination is one of the main challenges around this topic. This conference attracts each year more than 500 researchers, students and industry practitioners.
