In recent years, collecting, processing, linking and exchanging information has become easier due to the interconnectivity of electronic systems and the storage and processing capacity available. This scenario has led us to be more aware about privacy. The provision of mechanisms to facilitate the management of privacy in social/business networking services, dynamic coalitions, and cloud and grid systems becomes an important issue. Privacy plays a key role for the development of sustainable, secure, adaptable and efficient interconnected electronic societies. Approaches based on artificial intelligence techniques are required to deal with the complexities of providing suitable privacy.
