Pappas' summary points were:
- Many cyber-physical applications raise privacy concerns that need to be addressed to encourage user participation.
- There is a need for privacy-preserving mechanisms for various types of dynamic systems and data.
- Characterizing privacy-utility tradeoffs requires a quantitative definition of privacy.
- System and control theoretic tools (optimal estimators, system gains) can be used to design differentially private mechanisms
