Über den Autor
Jordi Nin (Barcelona, Catalonia, 1979; BSc 2004, MSc 2007, PhD 2008 all in Computer Science) is a post-doctoral researcher at the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA-CSIC) near Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. His fields of interest are privacy technologies, machine learning and soft computing tools. He has been involved in several research projects funded by the Catalan and Spanish governments and the European Community. His research has been published in specialized journals and major conferences (around 30 papers). Javier Herranz obtained his PhD in Applied Mathematics in 2005, in the Technial University of Catalonia (UPC, Barcelona, Spain). After that he spent 9 months in the Ecole Polytechnique (France) and 9 months in the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI, The Netherlands), as a post-doctoral researcher, granted with an ERCIM fellowship. From January 2007, he works as a post-doctoral researcher at IIIA-CSIC (Bellaterra, Spain). His research interests include the design and analysis of cryptographic protols and the study of privacy preserving operations involving databases.

A snapshot of the research that privacy researchers are currently carrying out
A book that can be considered as an actual baseline of privacy and anonymity research
The different profiles of the two editors bring the areas of theoretical cryptography and privacy in real life closer
A combination of theory and practice; that wills erve as a bridge between rsearchers in cryptography and researchers in other, more aplied, topics such as statistical/medical databases
