PLSC assembles privacy law scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss current issues and foster greater connections between academia and practice. It brings together privacy law scholars, privacy scholars from other disciplines (economics, philosophy, political science, computer science), and practitioners (industry, legal, advocacy, and government). For more information, see our FAQ.
PLSC is a paper workshop. There are no published proceedings, and after the event, papers are not available. Because authors’ drafts are works in progress, we do not publicly release these writings, nor do we publicize them (no Tweeting, blogging, etc.), as authors’ ideas are often inchoate and need incubation for full development.
At PLSC, papers workshops are led by a “commenter” who facilitates a discussion among participants on an author’s paper. Authors are encouraged to participate in “listening” mode. There are no panels or talking head events at PLSC.
All participants are expected to read and be prepared to discuss one paper per session (usually a total of 8 papers), and thus PLSC requires significant preparation. We recommended that participants devote 1.5 to 2 days of reading to prepare prior to the conference. One does not need to submit a paper to participate in PLSC–indeed most participants do not.
PLSC is an annual event, alternating between Berkeley Law and The George Washington University School of Law.

The RightsCon Program
Each year, the RightsCon program is created by the vibrant and diverse RightsCon community. RightsCon Toronto was home to our community’s most ambitious program yet, where more than 2,500 registered participants from 118 countries came together for 450 sessions. The RightsCon Tunis Call for Proposals will officially launch in early October 2018.
The RightsCon program is the guiding pillar of the community. As the world becomes more and more digital, the relevancy of issues tackled at the event grow. In Toronto, we saw the emergence of important new program tracks and issue areas: artificial intelligence and non-discrimination in machine learning, election integrity and the erosion of democracy, and misinformation in the media, to name a few.
The program for RightsCon Tunis will build from the successes of RightsCon Toronto by continuing to prioritize community-driven sessions that strategize for our human rights in the digital age. Organizing a program session provides the best opportunity to connect with and learn from leading experts around the world. A program session can be a policy discussion on an emerging problem, an advocacy strategy-meeting for creating new campaign tactics, a demo of a new civic tech initiative promoting democratic participation, or a workshop on how to fundraise as a civil society organization and improve operational development.
Stay tuned for more information, including the launch of our brand new RightsCon Community Platform.
