Sameer Patil, Helsinki Institute of Information Technology & IU School of Informatics and Computing
Rapid growth in the usage of location-aware mobile phones has enabled mainstream adoption of Location Sharing Services (LSS). Integration with social network services like Facebook has further accelerated this trend. However, sharing of location information presents an inherence tension with managing the privacy of that information.
Dr. Patil will discuss how privacy considerations in contemporary LSS are affected by transformation of location sharing into an interactive practice that is no longer limited only to finding people based on their whereabouts. Dr. Patil will also offer some design explorations for enhanced privacy management in LSS.
