Among PSD 2008 accepted papers, a selection will be made based on quality and coverage and the selected papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer. This follows the tradition of PSD 2006 (LNCS 4302), PSD 2004 (LNCS 3050) and the AMRADS Workshop on SDC (LNCS 2316).

The remaining accepted papers will be published in a CD with an ISBN. It is possible to submit a paper directly for the CD, which benefits from a later submission deadline (see CD-only dates below).

The form of publication of an accepted paper will be clearly specified in the acceptance message. Both the LNCS volume and the CD will be available at the conference.

IMPORTANT (SPECIAL ISSUE): Among papers in the LNCS proceedings, a second selection of 4-5 papers will be made by the Program and General Chairs, also aimed at topic coverage and quality. The authors of these 4-5 papers will be invited to prepare a substantially extended version for a special issue on "Privacy in Databases" of the "Data and Knowledge Engineering" journal (listed in ISI JCR).
