Seventh Annual Public Policy Symposium on the Law & Economics of Privacy and Data Security @ George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School | Arlington | Virginia | United States

We invite you to join us at Seventh Annual Public Policy Symposium on the Law & Economics of Privacy and Data Security on May 10, 2019, presented by the Program on Economics & Privacy of the Law & Economics Center at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia.

The revelation of the Cambridge Analytica scandal marked a tipping point in policy debates around Big Data, but while new regulations seem inevitable, the path of American privacy and data security law is still uncertain. How should lawmakers respond to the mounting public distrust of the digital economy? This year’s annual public policy symposium will harvest the insights from empirical research in order to better understand the nature of modern privacy risks as well as the risks of potential government interventions. Our distinguished speakers will comment on the likely impact of proposed omnibus privacy bills that have been circulating in Congress as well as the practical challenges of protecting personal data in specific contexts such as health, policing, and the U.S. Census.

The symposium will include a luncheon address by Harvard Law professor, Yochai Benkler, and a fireside chat with Neil Chilson, former FTC staff attorney. The four panels include “The Empirical Economics of Privacy and Data Security: What Do We Know, and What Do We Wish We Knew?”, “Case Studies: Privacy in the Context of Health, Elections, Policing, Environmental Innovation, and Smart Cities”, “Dueling Federal Privacy Bills”, and “Privacy and Access to Public Research Datasets.”

Online Advertising and Privacy: An Ad Tech Master Class & Overview of the Latest Global Legal Developments @ ACE Hotel Shoreditch
May 22 @ 8:00 am

Please Join Us in London

The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) and WSGR invite you to a half-day event which focuses on advertising technology — how it works and how to overcome the challenges of complying with global privacy requirements. Use of cookies and similar technologies for advertising and marketing purposes in a legally compliant way has long been a topic of debate, and market practice in this area is constantly evolving in light of technological and legal developments.

Combining their privacy expertise, FPF and WSGR will conduct an Ad Tech Master Class about how ad tech works and continue with a discussion about the latest legal developments applicable to these technologies. Here you will gain a clear understanding of the technologies ranging from cookies and mobile apps to ad networks and real-time bidding. We will also discuss the business models as well as data flows in analytics and ad tech so that you can make informed compliance decisions. Our panelists then will address the latest legal developments that may impact market practices in ad tech, including:

• How the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affected market practices
• The recent Court of Justice Advocate General Opinions in Planet49 and FashionID
• An update on the e-Privacy Regulation
• The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
• An overview of ongoing discussions about comprehensive federal privacy legislation in the U.S.

We hope to see you there.

Call For Papers: Fifth International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE’19)
May 23, 2019 – Hyatt Regency, San Francisco, CA 
************************************************************
IMPORTANT DATES
 
Deadline of abstract submission:   January 30, 2019
Deadline of paper submission:      February 3, 2019
Notification of acceptance:        February 23, 2019 
Accepted Paper camera ready:       March 3, 2019  
************************************************************
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 5th International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE’19).
Ongoing news reports regarding global surveillance programs, massive personal data breaches in corporate databases, and notorious examples of personal tragedies due to privacy violations have intensified societal demands for privacy-friendly systems. In response, current legislative and standardization processes worldwide aim to strengthen individual’s privacy by introducing legal, organizational and technical frameworks that personal data collectors and processors must follow.
However, in practice, these initiatives alone are not enough to guarantee that organizations and software developers will be able to identify and adopt appropriate privacy engineering techniques in their daily practices. It is also difficult to systematically evaluate whether the systems developed comply with legal frameworks, provide necessary technical assurances, and fulfill users’ privacy requirements. It is evident that research is needed in developing techniques and tools that can aid the translation of legal and normative concepts, as well as user expectations into systems requirements. Furthermore, methods that can support organizations and engineers in developing systems that address these requirements are of increasing value.
In this context, privacy engineering research is emerging as an important topic. Engineers are increasingly expected to build and maintain privacy-preserving and data-protection compliant systems in domains such as health, energy, transportation, social computing, law enforcement, public services; based on different infrastructures such as cloud, grid, or mobile. While there is a consensus on the benefits of an engineering approach to privacy, concrete proposals for models, methods, techniques and tools that support engineers and organizations in this endeavor are few and in need of immediate attention.
To cover this gap, the topics of the International Workshop on Privacy Engineering (IWPE’19) focus on all the aspects of privacy engineering, ranging from its theoretical foundations, engineering approaches, and support infrastructures, to its practical application in projects of different scale. Specifically, we are seeking the following kinds of papers:
(1) technical papers that illustrate the engineering or application of a novel formalism, method or other research finding (e.g., a privacy enhancing protocol) with preliminary evaluation;
(2) experience and practice papers that describe a case study, challenge or lessons learned from in a specific domain;
(3) early evaluations of tools and other infrastructure that support privacy-related tasks;
(4) interdisciplinary studies or critical reviews of existing privacy engineering concepts, methods, tools and frameworks;
(5) vision papers that take a clear position informed by evidence based on a thorough literature review.
IWPE’19 welcomes papers that focus on novel solutions on the recent developments in the general area of privacy engineering. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
-Integrating law and policy compliance into the development process
-Privacy impact assessment during software development
-Privacy risk management models
-Privacy breach recovery Methods
-Technical standards, heuristics and best practices for privacy engineering
-Privacy engineering in technical standards
-Privacy requirements elicitation and analysis methods
-User privacy and data protection requirements
-Management of privacy requirements with other system requirements
-Privacy requirements elicitation and analysis techniques
-Privacy engineering strategies and design patterns
-Privacy-preserving architectures
-Privacy engineering and databases, services, and the cloud
-Privacy engineering in networks
-Engineering techniques for fairness, transparency, and privacy in databases
-Privacy engineering in the context of interaction design and usability
-Privacy testing and evaluation methods
-Validation and verification of privacy requirements
-Privacy Engineering and design
-Engineering Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs)
-Integration of PETs into systems
-Models and approaches for the verification of privacy properties
-Tools and formal languages supporting privacy engineering
-Teaching and training privacy engineering
-Adaptations of privacy engineering into specific software development processes
-Pilots and real-world applications
-Evaluation of privacy engineering methods, technologies and tools
-Privacy engineering and accountability
-Privacy engineering and business processes
-Privacy engineering and manageability of data in (large) enterprises
-Organizational, legal, political and economic aspects of privacy engineering
This topic list is not meant to be exhaustive; since IWPE’19 is interested in all aspects of privacy engineering. However, to screen out off-topic papers early in the review process, we request authors to submit an abstract prior to their paper submission. Abstracts of papers without a clear application to privacy engineering will be considered outside the scope of this workshop and may be rejected.
************************************************************
PAPER FORMAT & SUBMISSION
We solicit unpublished short position papers (up to 4 pages) and long papers reporting technical, research or industry experience (up to 8 pages) on all dimensions of the privacy engineering domain. Each paper, written in English, must follow IEEE Proceedings format.
Authors must submit a short abstract prior to the paper submission. This abstract is aimed at 1) helping organizers understand whether the paper is on-topic early in the review process; and, 2) allowing reviewers to choose their preferred manuscripts in advance of the paper submission.
Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the workshop to present the paper. All papers must be submitted via EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwpe19
All IWPE’19 papers will be published in IEEE eXplore, which is indexed by EI Engineering Index, ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI-S), Scopus etc.

Privacy Law Scholars Conference 2019 @ Claremont Hotel, Berkeley
May 23 – May 24 all-day
Privacy Law Scholars Conference 2019 @ Claremont Hotel, Berkeley | Berkeley | California | United States

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.
