The EECS Department welcomes Prof. Lars Kulik, Visiting Eshbach Scholar, from the Department of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne, Australia.

Prof. Kulik will speak on Wednesday November 28th in the Ford ITW Auditorium. His talk is titled "Safeguarding Location Privacy in Location-Based Services"

Abstract: Current location-based services offer high position accuracy with real-time position updates. These services have many benefits and enable a range of applications, but they also come at a price: continuous tracking of individual users with high accuracy allows a service provider to collate a comprehensive movement profile for every user, a profile that possibly spans over several years. The threat to location privacy is nowadays exacerbated by the fact that modern smartphone operating systems allow third parties to offer location-based services.

In this talk, we will present work on providing location-based services that preserve a user's location privacy.
