Recent years have witnessed the tremendous growth in privacy research in economics, statistics and computer science. This workshop aims to highlight recent developments in privacy research at the intersection of those fields. It will bring together academics from different horizons: those working on the privacy issues in the handling of economic research data as well as those analysing how privacy affects the incentives and behaviour of economic agents. Privacy research in economics requires novel approaches that go beyond traditional techniques and incorporate ideas from statistics and computer science. The broad objective workshop is to provide an interactive environment to discuss and learn those ideas and approaches.
