Privacy and anonymity are increasingly important in the online world. Corporations, governments, and other organizations are realizing and exploiting their power to track users and their behavior, and restricting the ability to publish or retrieve documents. Approaches to not only protecting individuals and groups, but also companies and governments, from such profiling and censorship include decentralization, encryption, distributed trust, and automated policy disclosure.

This 6th workshop addresses the design and realization of such privacy and anti-censorship services for the Internet and other communication networks by bringing together anonymity and privacy experts from around the world to discuss recent advances and new perspectives.
