18th Annual International Conference on Privacy, Security and Trust (PST2020)
August 17-19, 2020, Toronto, Canada

NEWS After careful evaluation of currently available information, including information and directives from the World Health Organization and the Canadian governmental agencies and departments and considering all the factors essential to conduct a safe and successful annual conference, the PST2020 Organizing Committee has decided to cancel the conference regretfully. We are disappointed we couldn’t proceed with what was shaping up to be yet another excellent and successful PST conference. We look forward to receiving your continued help and support and look forward to seeing you in PST2021 in Auckland, New Zealand.
