The seventh Workshop on Privacy and Anonymity in Information Society (PAIS 2014) was held in conjunction with the International Conference on Extending Database Technology (EDBT) and International Conference on Database Theory (ICDT) in Athens, Greece.
The PAIS 2014 workshop provided an open yet focused platform for researchers and practitioners from fields such as computer science, statistics, healthcare informatics, and law to discuss and present current research challenges and advances in data privacy and anonymity research.
The present special issue contains three extended papers that have been selected as the best three papers presented at PAIS 2014 workshop.
