The 8th International Symposium on Security and Privacy in Social Networks and Big Data
Xi'an, China | 21-23 Oct 2022
Social Networks and Big Data have pervaded all aspects of our daily lives. With their unparalleled popularity, social networks have evolved from the platforms for social communication and news dissemination, to indispensable tools for professional networking, social recommendations, marketing, and online content distribution. Social Networks, together with other activities, produce Big Data that is beyond the ability of commonly used computer software and hardware tools to capture, manage, and process within a tolerable elapsed time. It has been widely recognised that security and privacy are the critical challenges for Social Networks and Big Data applications due to their scale, complexity and heterogeneity.
The 8th International Symposium on Security and Privacy in Social Networks and Big Data (SocialSec 2022) will be held at Xidian University in Xi'an, China on 16-18 October 2021. It follows the success of SocialSec 2015 in Hangzhou, China, SocialSec 2016 in Fiji, SocialSec 2017 in Melbourne, Australia, SocialSec 2018 in Santa Clara, CA, USA, SocialSec 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark, SocialSec 2020 in Tianjin, China and SocialSec 2021 in Fuzhou, China. The aim of the symposium is to provide a leading edge forum to foster interactions between researchers and developers with the security and privacy communities in Social Networks and Big Data, and to give attendees an opportunity to interact with experts in academia, industry, and governments.

Title: Effective Privacy Preservation in Blockchain
Abstract: Blockchain presents many advantages such as decentralization and trust without credibility for underpinning various applications especially in finance. However, user privacy such as identity and contract sensitive data needs to be preserved properly. How to protect user privacy in blockchain comes to the picture and calls for effective solutions. Especially, we need to consider data utility when preserving user privacy. In this talk, I will illustrate my recent progress in this research challenge.
