Among PSD 2012 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 2010 (LNCS 6344), PSD 2008 (LNCS 5262), 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.

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: Among papers in the LNCS proceedings, a second selection of up to 4-5 papers will be made by the Chair, also aimed at topic coverage and quality. Authors of selected papers will be invited to prepare a substantially extended version for a special issue of the "Transactions on Data Privacy" journal.

Also, a small number of survey papers in the various areas of statistical disclosure control will be invited for a special issue of the "Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery" journal.
