In this talk we first systematically present the current research status of the privacy-preserving in Location-Based Services (LBS), including the location privacy definition, the attacks and adversaries, the location privacy preserving mechanisms, the location privacy metrics, and the current status of location based applications. Then we will discuss three application cases. The first application case is to enhance privacy of LBS in wireless vehicular networks, where we develop an LBS privacy-enhancing scheme that is dedicated to the vehicular environment by exploring the unique features of queries from in-vehicle users. In the second application case we present a private Blockchain based method for task payment that effectively preserves individual privacy in the entire crowdsensing system. And in the third applicaiton case we deal with the trajectory privacy preserving in mobile crowdsensing, where we develop a location privacy preserving framework based on economic models for mobile crowdsensing applications.

Professor Wanlei Zhou (周万雷) received the B.Eng and M.Eng degrees from Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China in 1982 and 1984, respectively, and the PhD degree from The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia, in 1991, all in Computer Science and Engineering. He also received a DSc degree (a higher Doctorate degree) from Deakin University in 2002. He is currently the Head of School of Software in University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia. Before joining UTS, Professor Zhou held the positions of Alfred Deakin Professor, Chair of Information Technology, and Associate Dean (International Research Engagement) of Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment, Deakin University. Professor Zhou has been the Head of School of Information Technology twice (Jan 2002-Apr 2006 and Jan 2009-Jan 2015) and Associate Dean of Faculty of Science and Technology in Deakin University (May 2006-Dec 2008). Professor Zhou also served as a lecturer in University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, a system programmer in HP at Massachusetts, USA; a lecturer in Monash University, Melbourne, Australia; and a lecturer in National University of Singapore, Singapore. His research interests include security and privacy, bioinformatics, and e-learning. Professor Zhou has published more than 400 papers in refereed international journals and refereed international conferences proceedings, including many articles in IEEE transactions and journals.
